Erasmus Plus Programme (21 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: We would all acknowledge that the Erasmus+ scheme has been of huge benefit to our country. Indeed, over the past 30 years, 600,000 people from the UK have benefited. Erasmus+ is unique in providing additional funding for disadvantaged and disabled students, which is why the Government should fully support the scheme.

Refugee Family Reunion (21 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My hon. Friend is making an excellent point—refugees are indeed to be valued. While they are fleeing injustices from other parts of the world, we should not be following the example of President Trump in the United States. If anything, we should be showing compassion in our policy towards refugees.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: It is said there is no greater pain than losing a child, especially in circumstances that are entirely and easily avoidable. My Slough constituent Mark Scaife, whose son Michael tragically drowned in the Jubilee river, was shocked to learn that schools are not required to teach water safety and the impact of cold water shock. Does the Prime Minister agree that, as we are currently in the...

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Several highly skilled migrants in my constituency of Slough have had their Home Office applications refused due to the heavy-handed application of paragraph 322(5). Many who contacted me have lived in the UK for more than a decade and have British-born children, and are now in a state of despair. One told me: “I have given my best years, and contributed to the growth of Britain. My...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the crux of today’s debate is whether we want a close working relationship with our neighbour and social, cultural and economic partner, the European Union? Ultimately, that is why so many of us—including the business community, trade unions and many Opposition Members —want a customs union.

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My hon. Friend is making an excellent point about the unpredictability of the flight paths, which as yet NATS has not disclosed. Does she agree that before we proceed with any third runway we need to have cast-iron guarantees, particularly on a 6.5-hour ban on night flights, and stringent application of air quality control and noise limits?

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: For many of us who are still to decide which side of the argument to take, the devil will be in the detail. Does my hon. Friend agree that those who are impacted the most should be the ones compensated the most in terms of the mitigation? I allude in particular to my Slough constituency, where the third runway will be built. The mitigation, in terms not only of air and noise but of training...

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Does she agree that the Minister needs to acknowledge that the western rail link to Heathrow is not incumbent on whether we have a third runway? That scheme needs to happen forthwith regardless. More than 20% of the UK population will be within one interchange of our busiest airport. The Government committed to the scheme six years ago, but it has...

Voter ID Pilot Schemes (6 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Northern Ireland has invested millions of pounds over a considerable period to put that scheme in place. Such a scheme would have to be rolled out across the whole of England, but in these austere times we are led to believe that we do not have the money for our NHS. If we have the money for this pilot scheme, surely money should also be spent on much worthier causes, such as our NHS and our...

Voter ID Pilot Schemes (6 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: I thank my hon. Friend for securing the debate; she is making an excellent speech. On the point that she has just raised, is that not precisely why the respected and independent Electoral Reform Society is opposed to the scheme? The Equality and Human Rights Commission also warned the Government that a voter ID scheme would have a disproportionate impact on protected characteristic voters,...

Voter ID Pilot Schemes (6 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Studies from the University of California have shown that such schemes are merely a tool for voter suppression. Does my hon. Friend agree? As the Windrush scandal has aptly highlighted, many people within the UK do not even have one piece of ID, let alone several.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Universal Credit: Low-income Families (6 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: People in my constituency and elsewhere, especially low-income families across the UK, have been suffering as a result of the roll-out of universal credit. In Scotland, there have been numerous reports of people having to apply for emergency support, such as crisis grants and food parcels, to meet their immediate needs, because of the six-week waiting period. Does the Minister think there...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (24 May 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: We should all agree that the slaughter of unarmed civilians in Gaza is abhorrent. We need to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people at this time. While I agree with my hon. Friend on a UN-led inquiry, does she agree that a two-state solution is the only solution to the conflict and that we should be impressing that on all parties?

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (24 May 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The persecution of the Ahmadiyya or any community is abhorrent. If we are to be true to the principles of humanity, we must stand shoulder to shoulder with that community and stand up to discrimination in all its guises. Does the right hon. Lady agree that the appointment of a UK global ambassador for religious freedom would assist in highlighting and tackling the issues that we are...

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (24 May 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My hon. Friend is making a forceful argument. I also concur with other colleagues about the contribution of the Ahmadiyya community and wish to mention in that context mine in Slough. On Indonesia, just five days ago, on 20 May, The Jakarta Post reported that an unidentified mob attacked and destroyed several homes belonging to Ahmadis and attempted to expel the Ahmadiyya community from...
