Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I thank the hon. Member for North West Norfolk (Sir Henry Bellingham) for securing this debate. As many Members have said, society lotteries do fantastic work across the country and support a wide range of key local causes, including hospices, air ambulances, sports clubs, health charities, animal welfare and support for the...

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Will the Minister give way?

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I very much appreciate the Minister giving way. Although I acknowledge that the geopolitics of the region might make it difficult for our Government to speak out against Myanmar, and I appreciate that he was there last week at the same time I was, does he not agree that we stood by and blinked while the Rwandan genocide happened and, given the nature of the crimes against humanity that are...

Backbench Business: Rohingya Crisis — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: The UK has a proud history of being courageous, compassionate and generous, and of leading the way on humanitarian rights in the international community. I am here to say that we must act to protect the Rohingya people. Last week, I returned from the camps, where I was not just visiting but working as a doctor. I visited all the camps on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border and also went to the...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Over the past 50 years, the United Kingdom has had a proud history of leading the world in protecting and advancing the cause of humanity. We have vaccinated millions against diseases, given more than 5 million children around the world an education, and fought off fascism on the continent. Our ability to do all that is one of the key reasons that this country has been a beacon for people...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Last week I returned from the border of Bangladesh and Myanmar, where I heard of unspeakable crimes being committed against the Rohingya people. At this crucial time, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has had its budget slashed, and I am worried about the effect this will have on our ability to prevent future crimes against humanity. I would like to share my findings with the Secretary of...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Will the Foreign Secretary meet me?

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: The Foreign Secretary is yet to make a statement to the House on the Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar. On Monday I returned from Bangladesh, where I gathered evidence and treated victims of the unfolding genocide in Myanmar against the Rohingya people. Each day that our Government fail to act is another day wasted with innocent lives lost. Will the Leader of the House grant a debate in...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (16 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: The Minister will be aware that the Football Association made its final settlement payment to Eniola Aluko recently after initially withholding it because she spoke out about the abuse she had suffered. It is in the public interest to know how many people are being paid to stay silent. Does the Minister know how many settlement payments of a similar nature have been made to individuals by the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Shortage of Doctors: Medical Provision (14 Nov 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Last winter, patients were languishing on trolleys in A&E for up to 12 hours. The Red Cross was called in, and people were leaving A&E before their treatment. Does the Secretary of State recognise that it would be absolutely unacceptable for that to happen again this winter? What steps is he taking to ensure that it will not?

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I returned from Bangladesh just last week, and I felt moved to speak today. The Rohingya have been forced to choose between the perilous uncertainty of fleeing to another country and the certainty of the violent oppression in their own. The stories of suffering are simply too much to bear. Prior to being in this place, I had a career in the field of humanitarian emergencies, and I have rarely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: There is a crisis in mental health staffing levels. Does the Secretary of State accept that today, throughout the country, there are 2,000 fewer mental health nurses than there were when he took charge five years ago?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Sport: Discrimination (14 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It has been a successful summer for British women in sport, and I hope that the Secretary of State and the Minister will join me in paying tribute to all the women who took part in sporting events on behalf of our nation. However, in recent months, a senior football manager has threatened a female supporter, the body that governs English rugby has refused to extend contracts to the...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I must take the time to declare an interest: I am a junior doctor at St George’s hospital in Tooting. When the Conservative Government began their programme of ideological austerity, they imposed the pay cap to secure our nation’s finances. It quite simply has not worked. We were told that the Government could not increase public sector pay beyond 1% because to do so would harm...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I thank the right hon. Lady for her intervention, but I have to say that a future Labour Government will not just talk the talk; we will walk the walk. A Labour Government will be on the side of ordinary people—those serving on Britain’s frontline. It is not right that in 2017 Britain, those at the top of our civil service can receive golden handshakes, taking home more than a...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I agree 100% with my hon. Friend’s argument, which was most eloquently put. While those on the frontline work so hard, they are on the breadline. Our firefighters, teaching assistants, council officers, nurses, policemen and women, prison guards and hospital porters—the list is endless—are the glue that binds our country together. The services in which they work are vital,...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: No, I am going to make some progress. The quality of NHS services depends on the skill and talent of the people in them. Those in our NHS facing the everyday challenge of treating our most vulnerable should not be worrying about how they will put food on the table for their children—the very children who are having to accompany them to food banks. Let us be clear: lifting the pay cap...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I will give way—this will be interesting.

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: The hon. Gentleman heard the eloquent contribution from the Opposition spokesman today, and I would ask him where the £350 million a week is that we expected to see as a result of leaving the European Union. If his party has its way, we will have even less money for the NHS, so we will not only lose our valuable workforce who have come here from Europe but we will be further underfunded....

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: On Friday, Ravenstone Primary School in Balham sent a letter to parents announcing that it was making five essential support staff go. It has also lost a deputy head. If the school had not made those cuts, it would have faced a budget deficit of more than £150,000. Will the Secretary of State pledge that schools in Tooting will be given the necessary funding to maintain current staffing...
