Backbench Business: Perinatal Mental Illness — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (19 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. I was interested to hear the evidence put forward by the National Childbirth Trust to the all-party parliamentary group for the prevention of adverse childhood experiences that depression among 16-year-olds is usually linked to their mother’s pregnancy. I realise that the research is more complex, but given the worrying rise in the number of...

Exiting the European Union: Rights, Standards and Protections (19 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: What steps he is taking to ensure that there is no change to rights, standards and protections derived from the EU after the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Rights, Standards and Protections (19 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: The recent White Paper committed the UK to membership of the European convention on human rights. Will the Minister confirm that the Human Rights Act 1998, which puts that in domestic law, embodies that commitment to the people of the UK and our European partners?

Govia Thameslink Franchise (18 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: The Minister is saying that there is no quick fix, but I suggest to him that there is a quick fix for Bedford rail users—reinstating the East Midlands Trains service for rail users. They are struggling with Govia Thameslink, which has breached its contract with the DFT twice since 2015 and has surely done so again. The major cause of the failure was insufficient and under-qualified...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Officer Numbers (16 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: What recent assessment he has made of the effect of changes in the number of police officers on the level of serious crime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Officer Numbers (16 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: Bedfordshire police are under unprecedented pressure: violent crime is up, they face the third largest terrorist threat in the country, and they have had to support the visit of President Trump and deal with an increase in mental health cases. Can the Secretary of State explain how the police can keep the people of Bedford safe when they do not have the resources to attend 999 calls?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has said that the demolition of structures in the Khan al-Ahmar encampment would be a violation of international law and has called on the Israeli authorities to stop it. If the demolition goes ahead, which is likely given the previous record of the Israeli authorities, do the Government intend to take steps to hold the authorities to...

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: Bedford rail users are facing misery, delays and cancellations almost every hour. It is complete chaos. It is clear that GTR has breached the terms of the franchise and that it should be taken back into public ownership. When will the Minister stop making excuses, get a reliable timetable in place and commit to reinstating east midlands peak services for Bedford?

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech and making some good points. We are a nation of pet lovers, yet the law does not protect us from this destructive crime. It is a serious issue. Does my hon. Friend agree that losing a pet is like losing a family member, as thousands of people in this country think, and that we must stop equating the theft of a much-loved animal with the general theft...

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: I beg to move, That this House has considered BAME blood, stem cell and organ donation. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I first became aware of the issue of blood, stem cell and organ donation within black, Asian, mixed race and minority ethnic communities when I met Poonam Shah, who works in my constituency. Poonam’s husband, Rakesh, died from a blood...

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. I recognise the work that he has done as the chair of the APPG on stem cells. This is a very important issue, and that is why we are having this debate today.

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: My hon. Friend makes an important point and I will refer to similar points later in my speech. Sadly, despite receiving a transplant, Rakesh’s condition, MDS, was so advanced that he died in December 2014, leaving Poonam and their two young children. After Rakesh’s death, Poonam decided to raise funds for Anthony Nolan and raise awareness among people from south Asia and other...

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. In November, Poonam’s fundraising efforts were recognised when she was awarded individual fundraiser of the year. I was so inspired by her story that I wanted to help raise awareness of the issue in BAME communities, because none of us know whether we or one of our loved ones might be a name on that list in need of a match, desperately...

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s point. The disparity urgently needs to be addressed and I therefore welcome the very timely review by my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton South West (Eleanor Smith) on BAME stem cell and organ donation. The problem of insufficient blood, stem cell and organ donation is fundamentally one of supply and demand. According to the review, fewer than...

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: I agree with the hon. Lady. BAME donors make up 15% of the stem cell register; black donors make up just 1.2% of potential donors on the British Bone Marrow Registry. I hope the Minister shares my concerns about those statistics and will commit today to agreeing in full to the recommendations of the review by my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton South West.

BAME Blood, Stem Cell and Organ Donation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (27 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: I thank my hon. Friend for her hard work on the review and I look forward to working together on the issue. It is clear that increasing the number of BAME stem cell donors requires a many-sided approach, but one of the most important things that can be done is to integrate information about donation into the formal curriculum, which the review recommends. We already know that education works....

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: It will not be a surprise to the Secretary of State or the Minister to see me standing up to speak in this important debate, as my office has been in daily contact with theirs over the past few weeks. I can tell them that things are no better in Bedford. Until 20 May, passengers in Bedford had two choices: they could travel on Thameslink trains, which were slow but made more stops, or they...

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: I agree with what my hon. Friend says, because I am a commuter and I see the trouble at Bedford station every day. Almost every hour, a train is either delayed or cancelled. This Government need to take control and do something about this urgently. Two weeks ago, in this Chamber, I asked the Secretary of State to reinstate EMT peak rail services. His response was that that would be the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisons: Standards (15 Jun 2018)
