Occupied Palestinian Territories: Humanitarian Situation ( 8 Nov 2023)

Rushanara Ali: Over 10,000 people have already been killed in Gaza in the past month—more than were killed in the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. There are grave concerns that starvation is being used as a weapon of war against 400,000 civilians in the north of Gaza. That is illegal under international law. The UN Secretary-General and a number of others have talked about the need for a humanitarian ceasefire...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: After Clause 180 - Failure to prevent fraud (25 Oct 2023)

Rushanara Ali: It is an honour to speak on the Bill again. I was hoping that we could conclude the proceedings on the Bill as soon as possible and it is disappointing that the Government are yet to make further compromises. The Bill is welcome in principle, but it should not have taken the war on Ukraine to prompt the Government into action. I am grateful to my right hon. Friends the Members for Barking...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: After Clause 180 - Failure to prevent fraud (25 Oct 2023)

Rushanara Ali: If the Minister is brief, rather than talking the Bill out like he did last time, I will give way.

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: After Clause 180 - Failure to prevent fraud (25 Oct 2023)

Rushanara Ali: When the Minister was a Back Bencher, he was a powerful advocate on the very issues we are discussing today. It is a shame he has been muzzled, but I appreciate that he is in a difficult position. I hope we can have some comprise, but clearly he has not managed to persuade senior members of his Government. I ask the Government to once again carefully consider these amendments, so that we can...

Israel and Gaza (23 Oct 2023)

Rushanara Ali: Fourteen hundred Israelis have been killed by Hamas attacks, which I utterly condemn. Over 4,700 Palestinians have been killed by the airstrikes and, according to Save the Children, a child is dying every 15 minutes inside Gaza. Last week, I asked the Prime Minister what steps were being taken to de-escalate the conflict so that it does not engulf the wider region. This is happening. Can he...

Israel and Gaza (16 Oct 2023)

Rushanara Ali: My thoughts and prayers are with all the families who are grieving following the horrific terrorist attacks by Hamas, which I unreservedly condemn. These atrocities were committed by terrorists who do not seek peace, and they have set back the just cause of Palestinian freedom and statehood, which I, along with many across this House, have long supported. Over a million Palestinians in Gaza...

Business and Trade: International Investment in Northern Ireland (14 Sep 2023)

Rushanara Ali: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Business investment is lower in the UK than in any other G7 country and we rank 27th out of 30 OECD countries, ahead of only Poland, Luxembourg and Greece. More than half a trillion pounds-worth of under-investment by Government and business has left our economy trapped in a growth doom loop. What is the Secretary of State doing to undo this damage?

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: After Clause 46 - Register of members: information to be included and powers to obtain it (13 Sep 2023)

Rushanara Ali: It is a great honour to speak for the Opposition on behalf of myself and my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock). I pay tribute to my predecessor, my hon. Friend the Member for Feltham and Heston (Seema Malhotra). I am also grateful to my right hon. Friends the Members for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge) and for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne), my hon. Friend the Member...

Safety of School Buildings ( 6 Sep 2023)

Rushanara Ali: My hon. Friend will be aware that Jonathan Slater, the former permanent secretary, said that civil servants told the Government that there was a “critical risk to life” because of the dodgy buildings, and the failure to follow advice and invest in making sure our schools are safe. Does she agree that this Government are seriously putting children’s lives at risk through their...

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete in Education Settings ( 4 Sep 2023)

Rushanara Ali: After Grenfell, many of us raised concerns about the risks to buildings from other materials, but they fell on deaf ears. This morning, the Prime Minister said that some 900 schools could be affected. Warnings were made to the Government many years ago, but they fell on deaf ears. Can the Secretary of State explain to the British people—parents who are rightly concerned about whether their...
