Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: There is stalemate within the Cabinet. In the blue corner, we have the Prime Minister leading the charge for a substandard customs partnership; in the purple corner, we have arch-Brexiteers pushing for an economy-wrecking maximum facilitation scheme. Neither is workable, and they have both been rejected by the EU, so why are we even discussing them? We are told that a high-tech computerised...

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Yesterday’s abhorrent massacre was a fire fuelled by a narcissistic American President who is content to watch the world burn. Never have I felt so strongly that he should not be allowed the visit the UK. If the planned trip goes ahead, I for one shall be joining the tens of thousands of people who will line the streets in protest. I implore the Government to cancel his visit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Russia: Diplomatic Relations (15 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: At the European championships in 2016, Russian hooligans showed themselves to be organised, well armed and extremely violent. British fans’ safety must be our top priority at the World cup. Will the Secretary of State confirm whether the British diplomat responsible for fans’ safety at the World cup was expelled by Russia? If so, how can the Government even contemplate relying on...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Ticket Prices: National Sporting Events (10 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Any deal to sell Wembley stadium needs to benefit fans and grassroots football. We must ensure that fans are not priced out, which is why Labour has called for ticket prices to be frozen for at least 10 years and for the current list of cup and play-off matches to be guaranteed. We want these clauses to be written into any deal to sell Wembley stadium. Will the Minister back our recommendations?

Safeguarding Children and Young People in Sport — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (1 May 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Thank you for calling me to speak, Sir Roger; it is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. First, I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous) for calling this debate. I know that this issue is so important to him, and he has been tireless in working to secure this debate. I was extremely sorry to hear the story of his constituent, Mr Ackley,...

Hate Crime (12 Mar 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: These letters are nothing short of a sick and cowardly attempt to divide our communities. We are proud of our communities living side by side in harmony. A clear message must be sent from across this House that we will never cower to any form of extremism and we will never allow it to threaten the very fabric of our society. May I urge the Minister to ensure that this Government do not sit...

Water Supply Disruption (6 Mar 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Over the past four days, thousands of Balham and Tooting residents have been without water. The response from the local community in coming together has been superb, and I have been communicating with more than 1,000 residents each night on Twitter. Not every resident is on social media such as Twitter or Facebook, however, so does the Minister agree that a drastic rethink is needed of how...

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. First, I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) for calling this debate. He is a champion of basketball, serving as the chair of the all-party group on basketball, and is also a fierce supporter of his local team, Leeds Force. I also thank all Members from all parties for their contributions today. As...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Fixed Odds Betting (8 Feb 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: We send our best wishes from across the country to our Winter Olympic and Paralympic athletes. With the gambling review just two weeks away, we need the Secretary of State to ensure that the Government take action against FOBTs, and they must intervene to stop these machines ruining lives and tearing families apart. My right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham is absolutely right, so will the...

Refugees and Human Rights (24 Jan 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: In camps from Calais to Cox’s Bazar, there are hundreds upon thousands of people who have fled persecution, violence and disaster. They have not left their homes out of choice; they left their homes, their countries, everything that they know, because they were forced to. Many have suffered beyond our worst nightmares, with children burying their parents and parents burying their...

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Since Southern rail fares went up in the new year, three quarters of rush-hour services between Balham and Victoria have not arrived on time. If the delays we have seen so far are replicated throughout the year, Balham commuters will waste a total of 30 hours stuck on delayed trains. Southern rail is not fit for purpose. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is time for action?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: It is interesting to follow the hon. Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Dr Johnson). I have to say respectfully that I wholeheartedly disagree with her. She speaks of some kind of NHS utopia, but that is not the reality that I have seen on our A&E frontline. I am an A&E specialist and I have worked in our NHS for the past 12 years. When we look around an A&E department,...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I agree that it is deplorable that patients should feel that they have to do that. The historic underfunding of the NHS is not an economic necessity; it is a political choice made by this Government, which is why they will not change their direction to protect us. So, what must we do? We must change the Government. Until we do, the NHS will continue to crumble around its heroic staff, who...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Rosena Allin-Khan: I work in A&E and spent some shifts in recess working in A&E—on new year’s eve and just a few days ago, on Sunday. I agree that many of the people attending A&E, particularly at St George’s where I work, are there because they are frail, but they are also there because this Government have ensured they cannot get an appointment with their GP, our social care is...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: Merry Christmas to you, Mr Speaker, and to one and all, in particular my opposite number, the Under-Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Chatham and Aylesford (Tracey Crouch), who it is a pleasure to serve opposite. The Gambling Commission’s annual report confirmed that children as young as 11 are being introduced to forms of online gambling. The Gambling Act 2005 was introduced...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Dec 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 20 December.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Dec 2017)

Rosena Allin-Khan: In 2009, the Prime Minister said it was “a tragedy that the number of children falling into the poverty cycle” was “continuing to rise.” Every child deserves to have a roof over their head and food on the table, yet on her watch, in Wandsworth alone, the number of families forced to survive on food banks is continuing to rise, and 2,500 children—yes,...

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...
