P&O Ferries and Employment Rights (21 Mar 2022)

Richard Burgon: ...brutality and authoritarianism of the security guards—people laugh, but it is a company whose parent company is in Dubai, and trade unions and labour strikes are illegal in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates—provided a grotesque spectacle of workers being treated like dirt. We need action. Forty years of the domination of neoliberalism and the celebration of the weakening of trade...

P&O Ferries (17 Mar 2022)

Gavin Newlands: ...or little time for acclimatisation. Does the Minister not agree that P&O’s aim of resuming shipping with new staff almost immediately is reckless and unsafe? The Prime Minister visited the United Arab Emirates yesterday. Was there any discussion between him and the Dubai Government, the owners of DP World, about P&O? The Minister said that while this is a commercial decision “for them,...

Future of Soft Power (16 Mar 2022)

Amanda Milling: ...250 million a year. The FCDO World 2020 programme funds an additional 12 language services across Serbia, India, Africa and Asia, with additional funding provided to existing services in Russian, Arabic and English.

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Mar 2022)

Dominic Raab: Mr Speaker, I have been asked to reply on behalf of my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister. As the House will know, he is travelling in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia to discuss energy security, diplomatic action on Russia in Ukraine and regional issues, including Iran. Mr Speaker, with your forbearance, may I also say that I understand that four Members of the Ukrainian...

Ukraine (15 Mar 2022)

Julian Lewis: Could I urge colleagues on both sides of the House not to bring the Syria vote into this dispute? The Syria vote hinged on the fact that it was proposed to depose another Arab dictator without regard to the nature of the extremists who would have taken over. We did exactly that sort of thing when we armed all sorts of groups in Afghanistan, and that did not work out too well for America...

Ukraine Update - Statement (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Boycott: ...90% of Lebanon’s wheat, about 50% of Egypt’s, and all along the north African coast. Prices are expected to double from what they were in 2008, when they were one of the lead reasons for the Arab spring. I know we cannot do something about this from here, but what discussions are the Government having with the WHO and the FAO? This is a crisis we can see coming towards us really fast.

International Women’s Day (10 Mar 2022)

Caroline Ansell: ...the online harms Bill, which I know will start to make a real difference in that sphere. Until then, it is for women to show the way. I recently met Dr Amal, who was the first Speaker in the United Arab Emirates—indeed, the first Speaker in the Arab world. What an incredible role model she is. With her dignity, grace and courage, she is truly world-changing. Interestingly, in terms of...

Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 47 (9 Mar 2022)

Lord Polak: ...third largest trading partner, with £2.7 billion-worth of British exports and an overall trade relationship worth £4.8 billion. With improved and growing relations in the Middle East between the Arab world and Israel—the Abraham accords were referred to—and the UK’s very strong connection with Israel, I must say that the BDS campaign is a relic of a past war which is no longer...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (8 Mar 2022)

Christian Wakeford: Despite our deep and historic ties both with Israel and with the Arab world, the UK was entirely absent from the process that led to the Abraham accords in the summer of 2020, and last year’s integrated review made no mention of them whatsoever. Does the Minister agree that if the rhetoric of global Britain is to mean anything, surely the UK should be central to encouraging more of our...

International Trade: Trade: Persian Gulf Countries (3 Mar 2022)

Mike Freer: ...we aim to start negotiations on a free trade agreement with the GCC later in 2022. Work continues bilaterally with countries in the region.

Backbench Business: International Mother Language Day — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (1 Mar 2022)

Navendu Mishra: I would like to share the fact that Hindi and Urdu are very similar when spoken, but they are written differently. Hindi is written left to right, but Urdu is based on the Arabic script and it is right to left. I would encourage the hon. Gentleman to learn either, then he will be able to speak both, but he will have to do a lot more work when it comes to writing.

Online Abuse — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (28 Feb 2022)

Catherine McKinnell: ...dramatically in the 12 years that I have been in Parliament. In the early days, people saw it as a force for good, whether they were activists using Twitter and Facebook to organise when the Arab spring began in 2011 or just groups of likeminded people sharing photos of their cats and clips from their favourite video games. Many people took the anonymity it offered to be an unqualified...

Sanctions (28 Feb 2022)

Richard Graham: ...with partners on intensifying economic sanctions. The announcements from Switzerland and Singapore were particularly important. What more does she think that we can do to persuade the United Arab Emirates to stand up more strongly for the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity against unwarranted aggression?

Recognition of the State of Palestine (24 Feb 2022)

Bambos Charalambous: ...this progress on its own is not enough to help the current political stalemate between Israel and Palestine. It is very welcome that Israel has been receiving its own greater recognition across the Arab world, but that positive step surely strengthens the argument that the same international recognition of Palestine is also important to establishing peace. If the UK Government do not take...

Muslim Community in Wales — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (23 Feb 2022)

Geraint Davies: ...around the Boundary Commission proposals that would split it in half, which I am hoping will be resolved. As is the case elsewhere, the Muslim community is largely of Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Arabic but also African descent, and indeed there are some white Muslims. We are very much a community of communities in Swansea, and the Muslim community provides public service in our hospitals...
