Supported Housing — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (18 Jan 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. I will be very brief; as I said when I apologised to you earlier, I have to leave to go to a funeral in Bedford. I share the concern outlined in the Select Committees’ joint report that the Government do not seem to be aware of the impact of their funding proposals on the supported housing sector. Some vital support services...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Southern Rail: Passenger Compensation (18 Jan 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: Bedford commuters will lose their fast peak train services in May. Many now do not know how they will balance work with their childcare arrangements. Does the Minister agree that Stagecoach should compensate these people and rail users who, by the Government’s admission, have borne the pain of the changes to the rail network timetable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (16 Jan 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: The East of England Ambulance Service experienced its busiest ever Christmas, and it had to rely on taxis to take patients to the hospitals. At least one patient died while waiting for an ambulance.

NHS Winter Crisis: Rail Franchising (10 Jan 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: Just before the summer recess, the Government announced they were abandoning plans for the electrification of the midland main line. A consultation on the new east midlands rail franchise announcement followed—a process that was rushed, chaotic and, as has recently come to light, a sham. Throughout the time when my constituents were feeding into the consultation process in good faith,...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Mohammad Yasin: I will concentrate on my main point in the 90 seconds being given to me. NHS staff have said that this winter crisis was predictable and preventable. Bedford Hospital NHS Trust was one of the 24 trusts that issued a warning saying they were at full capacity. Patients, including many elderly and frail people, are routinely stuck in the back of ambulances in logjams waiting to get into A&E....

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) for his excellent work on this important and serious issue that is facing some women in this country born in the 1950s. Five and a half thousand women in Bedford borough are affected by the pension changes, which were drawn up with little or no notice, and with no time being allowed for people to make alternative plans for...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Funding — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I thank and commend my hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Dec 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: It was confirmed in the Budget that the Ministry of Justice will be cut by 40% in the decade to 2020, which is more than any other Department. We have already seen a significant reduction in judges, lay members and accessible tribunal hearing services. Will the Minister confirm today that enough is enough and that there will be no more cuts in the south-east region?

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) for introducing this debate, and the 147,000 members of the public—especially the hundreds from my constituency of Bedford and Kempston—who signed the petition that brings us here. I hope that they know their efforts are making a difference. I have...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: You should ask your Minister how he will deal with these issues. If you care for the people, you should not ignore the workers, and you should not ignore the nurses—

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Mohammad Yasin: I apologise. If the Government care for public sector workers, they should not ignore teachers and they should not ignore nurses. They should not ignore the 5.5 million workers in this country, and their families, who are struggling because of the cuts that the Government have made. It is painful that only a handful of Government Members have turned up for this important debate. That shows...

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

Mohammad Yasin: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) for securing this important debate and for bringing our attention to her visit to the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

The UN...

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

Mohammad Yasin: It is an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Leigh (Jo Platt). This Budget will forever stand as a reminder of why we should never trust the Conservative party with the economy. Its mismanagement of fiscal policy since 2010 has led us to the longest fall in living standards for 60 years, and that looks set to continue well into the next decade. The deficit will not be eliminated...
