Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Business of the House (13 Sep 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Since 2015, there have been several water-related deaths in my constituency, and I highlighted this worrying issue during Prime Minister’s questions. Tragically, it is also an important matter for others such as my right hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne East (Mr Brown) and my hon. Friends the Members for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) and for Newcastle upon...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Children in Temporary Accommodation (23 Jul 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Will the Minister commit today to devoting more funds to local authorities specifically to resolve the issue of families living in temporary accommodation?

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The Brussels declaration highlighted how arms control should “continue to make an essential contribution to achieving the Alliance’s security objectives”. Can the Prime Minister confirm what steps the Government are taking on that, particularly with regard to small arms, which can be so devastating?

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. As to women pushing boundaries, does he agree that women, and especially those from ethnic minorities, are often not given much credit for their accomplishments? The first black lady mayor in the country, Lydia Simmons, was elected in Slough. She was an inspiration for many, yet often such individuals do not get the credit they deserve.

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Does my hon. Friend agree that individuals such as Princess Sophia Duleep Singh are often left out of history and not celebrated as much as some of their counterparts, and that that is something that we need to remedy in our history?

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate to mark the 90th anniversary of women attaining equal voting rights to men. Unfortunately, there are still some women who, because of their circumstances, feel unable to vote. One example is survivors of domestic abuse who feel unable to register because they do not want to risk their safety. They may not be aware that, thanks to...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The Institute for Fiscal Studies has found that in the last two years, funding per pupil fell by just over 4%, at a time when other costs have increased. The recent reallocation to school funding from other budgets still leaves schools in my constituency worse off by more than £300 per pupil, something about which a great many parents and teachers have written to me in recent weeks. Does...

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

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: In terms of outreach work, whether with the MOBO awards or otherwise, can the Minister outline the steps that have been taken to reach out via the media? I am not just referring to the national media but the culturally specific and ethnic media, which has a greater outreach in those ethnic minority communities.

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

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this debate. Does he agree that Health Ministers should work more closely with grassroots and community organisations? Currently, donors from Asian or other minority ethnic backgrounds make up just 15% of the stem cell register, but campaigns such as Cure Kaiya, which held an event in my constituency, and Match4Rajie are encouraging more people from BAME...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) on securing this important debate. It is clear that the situation in Gaza represents a major humanitarian crisis, which is getting worse, not better, and which has dangerous consequences for the whole region. It makes the likelihood of a Palestinian state...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: I could not agree more with the hon. Lady and I hope the Minister will answer that point. At the International Development Committee on 19 June, Rachel Evers, director of legal affairs at the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, gave shocking evidence about the pressures on the relief on the ground. I ask the Minister to address the important point about the impact of cuts to the UNRWA...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The decision to expand Heathrow is complex and contested, with competing projections and a range of criteria that must be considered—more than I can do justice to within the four-minute time limit. As we have heard, my party’s Front Bench remains unconvinced, with the four tests not being met. I am grateful to my hon. Friend the shadow Secretary of State for Transport and his team...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Cold Water Shock: Mandatory Teaching (25 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Whether he plans to include mandatory teaching on cold water shock as part of compulsory swimming and water lessons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Cold Water Shock: Mandatory Teaching (25 Jun 2018)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: No doubt the Minister agrees with the Prime Minister, who told the House last week, when I raised with her the case of Michael Scaife, who tragically drowned in Slough, that she recognises there is more to do on water safety education. The curriculum swimming and water safety recommendations were made nearly a year ago. On this, the last day of the Royal Life Saving Society’s annual...

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?
