Family Visitor Visas — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (9 Jul 2018)

Faisal Rashid: I thank my hon. Friends the Members for Warrington North (Helen Jones) and for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire) for putting the case very eloquently and for giving us information and examples. We are debating this petition because, across the United Kingdom, the relatives of British citizens, who want nothing more than to visit their family, are being prevented from doing so. My hon....

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (27 Jun 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Will the Minister please explain how the Government justify wasting time and taxpayers’ money on the “testing and scrutiny” of contractual arrangements, only to ignore their own highest possible risk rating for Capita and award it the fire and rescue contract?

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

Faisal Rashid: According to the latest figures from the UN, since 30 March this year, 135 Palestinians, including children, have been killed and thousands injured, half of them seriously, as a result of live ammunition. Does my hon. Friend agree with Amnesty International, which has renewed its call on Governments worldwide to impose a comprehensive arms embargo on Israel following the country’s...

Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Faisal Rashid: I commend the fantastic work of my hon. Friend the Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist) and the National Society for Phenylketonuria, who have worked incredibly hard to raise awareness of PKU in Parliament in the past few months. Until I met with representatives from the NSPKU a few months ago, I knew very little about PKU, like many other hon. Members. Since, I have learned a huge amount about...

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

Faisal Rashid: It is estimated that thousands of migrants who have been living and working in the UK for many years are wrongfully facing deportation because of minor tax discrepancies or rectifications. The immigration rules we are discussing today under paragraph 322(5) are extremely vague. Fortunately, the Home Office issued guidance on when to use that sub-paragraph to deny leave to remain. It states:...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (8 May 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Chapelford medical centre in my constituency has been operating out of a portakabin on waste land for many years, due to excessive delays and the failings of various NHS bodies involved in this project. What action will Ministers take to resolve these shocking delays, and will they meet me to give assurances to my constituents?

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: It is great to follow the hon. Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean), although I do not believe in most of the things she said. I am grateful to the Leader of the Opposition for once again giving Members the opportunity to raise the important issue of social care funding on the Floor of the House. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley) for leading...

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Warrington Borough Council faces funding pressures of more than £3.3 million to meet its adult social care needs in 2018-19. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is up to the Government to support councils in their efforts to provide quality social care to their communities, not to pass the buck—

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: On to council taxpayers in my constituency or any other?

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Under the new system, Warrington will have among the worst funded schools—141st out of 150—and could also lose just under £2,500 per child. Clearly, the system is not fit for purpose or balanced across the country. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government should ensure that the fair funding formula is just that: fair?

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: The figures show that almost 5,000 individuals are now sleeping rough on our streets. That is a 15% increase on 2017 and a 169% increase since 2010—a massive increase. Does my hon. Friend agree that we cannot help the homeless if we do not provide the homes that they require?

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Between 2010 and 2015, funding to homeless services was cut by 45%. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that could be one of the main reasons for street homelessness?

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Graham. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hartlepool (Mike Hill) on bringing the petition forward for debate. I thank the 237,462 individuals who signed the petition and gave us the opportunity to raise the issue of NHS privatisation, which is important for many of my constituents. I know that the same is true for all Members...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Faisal Rashid: That supports my point, and is a great example. The Government view of outsourcing does not reflect the reality of privatisation. Did patients receive the best quality of care from the private firm Circle when it took over management of Hinchingbrooke Hospital in 2012, making it the first privately run NHS hospital, only to withdraw from its contract two years later after it was placed in...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Faisal Rashid: This Bill is nothing short of an assault on parliamentary sovereignty and on our democracy. It is not an exaggeration to say that the Bill does almost nothing but undermine MPs’ capacity to scrutinise legislation. It gives the Executive the power to sign up to treaty obligations that Parliament will be powerless to debate or oppose. We have heard time and again that Britain’s...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Bilateral Relationships (9 Jan 2018)

Faisal Rashid: What recent assessment he has made of the future of bilateral relationships with the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Bilateral Relationships (9 Jan 2018)

Faisal Rashid: Last month the Foreign Secretary warned that the UK would become “a vassal state” if we could not diverge from EU tariffs and standards, but he also accepted that divergence would have “trading consequences” for the UK. Could he spell out what those consequences would be?
