Human Rights in Hong Kong — [Ms Nusrat Ghani in the Chair] (9 Jun 2021)

Tom Randall: I am grateful to all the hon. and right hon. Members who have spoken this afternoon. When I was preparing for this debate, I reread the Hansard debate on the joint declaration in December 1984. I was struck by the fact that although there were some concerns about immigration status, there was unanimity across the House that, at the time, that was the best deal that could have been obtained...

Agricultural Exports from Australia: Tariffs (27 May 2021)

Tom Randall: Mr Speaker, the deep historical relationship that we have with Australia is perhaps exemplified by the fact that your Chair is a gift from Australia. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this agreement is an opportunity to deepen the relationship with our kith and kin in Australia and should be celebrated and championed and not denigrated?

Debate on the Address: Safe Streets for All (17 May 2021)

Tom Randall: The theme of today’s debate is safe streets for all, and with the events of the weekend, my thoughts turn in particular to those British citizens who happen to be Jewish. The rights and wrongs of the Arab-Israeli conflict will no doubt continue to be debated at great length, but what we saw at the weekend was not part of that debate. I am pleased to hear that arrests have been made, and I...

We have seen in Xinjiang the dehumanisation of the Uyghurs. They are subject to mass-surveillance;...

Covid-19: Government Transparency and Accountability (22 Apr 2021)

Tom Randall: As a first-term Member of Parliament, I am relatively new to the work of Select Committees. When I joined the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, I expected to undertake important and valuable work scrutinising the heart of Government, but I did not quite expect to have to consider matters that are so crucial to everyday life and, indeed, matters of life and death....

Covid-19: Government Transparency and Accountability (22 Apr 2021)

Tom Randall: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. The public perhaps do not appreciate that there are sometimes a variety of opinions within a group such as SAGE. Indeed, within SAGE, debate is encouraged as part of the decision-making process. Sometimes people think that there is a definitive scientific answer to something, which is not always the case. As we heard earlier, the report made further...

Coronavirus (25 Mar 2021)

Tom Randall: I think the day when all the regulations under the Coronavirus Act are lifted will be my highlight in this Parliament. That is a day that cannot come soon enough, but I do accept that today is not that day. There is a road map and an end in sight, but the events on the continent remind us that we have not reached the end point just yet. Were the measures lifted today, many that have been...

UK Rare Diseases Framework (24 Mar 2021)

Tom Randall: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Miller. I congratulate the hon. Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist) on securing the debate.

This week I received a mailshot from one of the UK’s leading cancer charities....
