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...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: The right hon. Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry) and I recently went to Jordan, where we met people on the ground who are really worried about the potential instability resulting from Jordan’s acceptance of so many Syrian refugees. Do the Government agree that ensuring stability in the host countries that are opening their doors is an absolute priority?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Doctors and Nurses (4 Jul 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: In this country, we are short of approximately 40,000 nurses, and applications for nursing places have gone down by 23%. Can the Secretary of State tell us why he and his Government think that that is the case?

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It has been an absolute honour and a pleasure to hear the maiden speeches from across the House today. Although Tooting is not awash with peaks and flowy rivers, it is very beautiful and I am immensely grateful to the people of Tooting for re-electing me. Brexit will play a substantial part in the business of the House over the next two years. However, ensuring that we have a well-resourced...

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Why was the Secretary of State, or any Conservative representative, not present at any of the hustings, the marches or the meetings during the electoral process? It is easy now to stand up in the Chamber where she feels safe among her comrades, but why is she not at the coalface speaking to parents, teachers and pupils? Nine-year-olds were marching against Government cuts. Where was she then?...

NHS Shared Business Services (27 Jun 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Patient confidentiality and safety must be treated with the utmost seriousness at all times, and the NHS fails if it loses the trust of its patients, so how did the Secretary of State for Health come to the conclusion that risk to more than 1,700 patients was merely due to an issue of mail redistribution?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: A&E Waiting Times (21 Mar 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: What estimate he has made of the number of patients who waited more than 12 hours for treatment in A&E in the last 12 months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: A&E Waiting Times (21 Mar 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Earlier this month, the chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners said that the “best place for GPs” is working within their communities to provide the highest possible general practice quality. What forecast has the Secretary of State made of the reduction in A&E waiting times next winter as a result of the new GP triage units in A&E departments? Does he agree...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Broadcasting: Diversity (16 Mar 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: In a previous DCMS questions, the Minister of State told the House that he had chosen four white males for the Channel 4 board and rejected a well-qualified BAME woman because he rejected tokenism. However, this week the Secretary of State failed to appoint a BBC governor to represent Wales because she could not get her way and appoint a women who was not assessed as the best candidate. Is...
