Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: It is a great pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Wealden (Ms Ghani) and I congratulate the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) on introducing the Bill. The death of a child is something that no parent should have to face. The intense grief they experience is something I can only imagine and I hope I never have to go through it. Sixty families across Bedfordshire lost a...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Corby (Tom Pursglove) and to listen to his experiences as the child of two police officers. I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) on introducing this timely and important Bill and my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) on her hard work to bring it forward. More action is necessary to protect...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I agree with my hon. Friend. It is a very important point. Mental health workers do an important job and should be protected, like many other key workers in our country. Just yesterday, Jim Mallen wrote to six more officers who had been injured on duty. Their injuries were from their being driven into, elbowed in the face, bitten and kicked. He believes that the emergency services are...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: Universal credit was rolled out in Bedford in May, and it is causing pain and suffering to many of my constituents who find themselves much worse off after being transferred on to the new system. We were told that under universal credit people would never be worse off in work, but in reality the opposite is true. The fastest growing category of people in poverty are those in work, and many...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bethnal Green and Bow (Rushanara Ali) on organising and leading such an important debate. More than half a million people—mostly Rohingya women and children—have fled violence in Rakhine state, seeking refuge in Bangladesh. The latest reports from Amnesty International speak of massacre, murder and brutality on a huge scale, with...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (12 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (12 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: The High Court judgment on Monday found that the Government’s 2016 redefinition of torture for immigration purposes was unlawful. Will the Government now widen the definition of torture so that vulnerable women who have been victims of abuse and trafficking who are currently held in Yarl’s Wood can be immediately released?

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

Mohammad Yasin: Yesterday the private ambulance service that provided non-urgent patient transport at Bedford hospital ceased trading, leaving the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust to pick up the pieces. Will the Minister order an inquiry to establish what went wrong, and does he agree that using private companies to run key services for our NHS is simply not working?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (9 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: What progress he is making on the roll-out of universal credit.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (9 Oct 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: A recently bereaved constituent of mine, a working single parent, has seen her income reduced by £300 a month since transferring to universal credit. For her, work does not pay. Will the Secretary of State urgently review the link between agreement to support payments and universal credit, and will he stop the roll-out until he has done so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: What action is the Prime Minister taking to ensure that my constituents, many of whom are paying in excess of £5000 to travel to London every year, get a better service, not the one that the new plans under her Government will introduce? Under those plans the people of Bedford will lose the inter-city rail services.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: No, you don’t.

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: The Rohingya were the loyal allies of Britain in world war two and now they face their darkest hour. Will the Minister give us a clear answer? Will the Government make representations to the UN Security Council, calling for its immediate intervention to protect the Rohingya?

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I have read the report, which is very good. As a former taxi driver, I know how taxi drivers operate and the issues that they face along with passengers. Cross-border hiring is a massive issue. The report says that there has been a 30% reduction of income for drivers in London, but in other areas it is even bigger. A lot of drivers are leaving the trade because other drivers are coming in...

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I am going to do so. I have another meeting to go to, so I have to make the point now. Does my hon. Friend agree that there should be a cap not only on vehicles but on private hire drivers’ licences?

Taxi Trade — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I have to go to another meeting, so I thank my hon. Friend for allowing me to intervene. One main issue that is very important but is not mentioned in the report is the safety of drivers. Drivers are very vulnerable, especially at night time, and if they have four or five passengers in their car they can get a lot of abuse. There is no mention of driver safety in the report, and I would like...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to make my maiden speech in this very important debate. It seems fitting to pay tribute to the Bedfordshire Regiment whose men also fought at Passchendaele. Many did not come back home. It is not lost on me that the sacrifices made by those men 100 years ago led to the freedoms, rights and opportunities that I am proudly expressing today. I am...
