Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill (16 Jan 2023)

Claudia Webbe: I rise to speak as a proud trade unionist, which I have been since I was 16 and will be until the very end. The Government do not care about patients, passengers, parents or the public. That is not what their minimum service levels Bill is about. It is a shameful attack on the democratic right to strike. At just six pages long, the Bill does not even set out the boundaries of what is...

NHS: Long-term Strategy (11 Jan 2023)

Claudia Webbe: The first thing that needs to be said in this debate is that its title gives a false impression: “mismanagement” creates an impression that the Government have been doing their best to manage the NHS well but have failed to do so, whereas in fact the emergency in our NHS is the result of 13 years of deliberate policy decisions by the Conservatives. A staff shortage of 133,000 that has...

Cost of Food (14 Dec 2022)

Claudia Webbe: On that point, will the Minister give way?

Cost of Food (14 Dec 2022)

Claudia Webbe: Thank you, Mr Gray. Food poverty is a political choice. It is slow violence; we are talking about social murder. The sheer numbers of people who are suffering hardship in this country is staggering. The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show that over 20 million people in the UK have been forced to cut back their spending on food and essentials because of the spiralling...

Asylum Seeker Employment and the Cost of Living — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (14 Dec 2022)

Claudia Webbe: Does the hon. Member not agree that the immigration system is based on the hostile environment and that we are going to have difficulties unless we do something about that? The Immigration Acts of 2014 and 2016 effectively introduced internal borders. That means that every aspect of someone’s life, including going to a bank and accessing any type of service, is being policed by immigration...

Asylum Seeker Employment and the Cost of Living — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (14 Dec 2022)

Claudia Webbe: It is really disheartening to hear about those deaths from the hon. Member for Bury South (Christian Wakeford). While the moral and economic justifications are obvious, allowing asylum seekers to work would, conversely, deprive the Government of propaganda that says, “Asylum seekers are a drain on the country and a detriment to our society”. We all know how much the right-wing mainstream...

Benefit Sanctions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (13 Dec 2022)

Claudia Webbe: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Pritchard. I thank the hon. Member for Glasgow South West (Chris Stephens) for securing this valuable and important debate. The Government claim that evidence clearly shows that their sanctions regime is clear, fair and effective in getting people into work, so why are they hiding data from experts who want to study that effectiveness?...

Finance Bill (28 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: Contrary to what we have heard, the Bill is not about growth. It goes nowhere near what is needed. It is not fair, and it is not just. The median annual pay per person in my Leicester East constituency is, at £20,300, the lowest in the country according to the latest figures from His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, which were published in April 2022. The national average for the same period...

Bhopal Gas Explosion Investigations — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (15 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Stockport (Navendu Mishra) for securing this important debate. Despite the Bhopal gas explosion occurring almost 40 years ago at the Union Carbide plant in Bhopal, hundreds of thousands of Bhopalis are still living in its long shadow, unable to move on with their lives with dignity and justice. In addition to the 3,000 people who died almost immediately,...

Sri Lanka ( 9 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: I thank the hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Elliot Colburn) for securing the debate, together with the vice-chairs of the APPG, and the Backbench Business Committee for granting it. The significant Tamil and Sri Lankan communities of Leicester East are watching the debate with interest. Many have experienced the atrocities at first hand. They are deeply troubled by the appalling...

Sri Lanka ( 9 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: The right hon. Member is absolutely right. I thank him for reminding us of that situation; it is absolutely clear. Sri Lanka has defaulted on $55 billion-worth of debt and declared bankruptcy, causing widespread misery for its citizens. It does not even have enough foreign exchange reserves to buy essentials for its citizens. After months of delay, the International Monetary Fund has reached...

Yemen Peace Process — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] ( 3 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Davies. I thank the hon. Member for Meon Valley (Mrs Drummond) for bringing forward this important debate and the Backbench Business Committee for granting it. We are debating the peace process in Yemen, but the brutal fact is that before the UK can make any meaningful contribution to any peace process in Yemen, the Government need to make...

Yemen Peace Process — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] ( 3 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: I think our responsibility is to work towards peace, and we need to focus our efforts on ending the arms sales that rain bombs down on the Yemeni people. The UK must use its penholder role to push the UN into restoring its mandate for war crimes investigation immediately to ensure that those who carry out those crimes are identified and held to account. The horrific situation in Yemen demands...

Black Maternal Health Awareness Week 2022 — [James Gray in the Chair] ( 2 Nov 2022)

Claudia Webbe: You are very kind, Mr Gray, and it is an honour to serve under your chairship. I thank the hon. Member for Streatham (Bell Ribeiro-Addy) for securing this vital debate. The health of our nation is reflected in the health of our mothers, and the shocking statistics paint a picture of nothing short of gross negligence. I thank Tinuke and Clo for producing the groundbreaking “Black Maternity...
