Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: The Secretary of State has recently received a letter from the leader of Slough Borough Council, Sohail Munawar, following the council’s motion calling for the full roll-out of universal credit to be paused. I am proud of the council for having passed that motion, because the concerns are real. The partial roll-out has already pushed many in Slough into rent arrears and spiralling debt,...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: My right hon. Friend is making an excellent speech and some very pertinent points. Many tech firms and other companies in my constituency are concerned: we need to have such agreements in place—in particular, on data protection—and not having them in place will have a hugely detrimental impact. Does my right hon. Friend agree?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Following on from the very moving and courageous speeches by hon. Members about Baby Loss Awareness Week, I rise as someone whose own family members have suffered from the trauma of baby loss. Stillbirths and neonatal deaths affect so many in our community, including in my Slough constituency. The son of my very good friend Councillor Madhuri Bedi was born prematurely. He had strep B, which...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

It is wonderful to see the advances made and also the pledges made by the Minister, whether on maternity safety champions, funding for safety and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: I agree with my hon. Friend that clauses 7, 8 and 9 are Henry VIII clauses, enabling Ministers to repeal and replace elements of the statute book at will and implying that our Parliament will not be able to take back control. It is clear that, rightly respecting the British public’s decision, we will be leaving the EU because article 50 has been triggered, but does my hon. Friend agree...

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: We need to appreciate that the sustained discrimination against, and killing of, Rohingya Muslims has been ongoing for years. To their credit, Bangladesh and other nations have attempted to accommodate and assist Rohingya refugees. Surely, the de facto leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, of all people, should respect the rights of all, especially minorities. Extraordinary respect and honour...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker, for allowing me the opportunity to make my maiden speech within such an important debate. I commend the previous speakers, hon. Members, for the eloquence with which they have delivered their strong message on the drugs debate. I first wish to pay tribute to my predecessor, Fiona Mactaggart, for her two decades of determined and dedicated service for our...
