Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: For two years, my constituents and I campaigned against the development of a luxury skyscraper. The local councillors listened and rejected the plans, but then the Conservative Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government called in the decision and overturned the wishes of the community, showing utter disrespect for local democracy. The Prime Minister preaches localism, but will he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Family Visas (22 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The financial threshold for family visas is causing particular distress to one of my constituents, who cannot work the hours required because she is a carer for her vulnerable child. This means my constituent is living without her husband and the child is living without his father. Does the Minister acknowledge that he is at risk of creating a generation of children whose only contact with...

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I agree with many of the hon. Lady’s points. My constituent, Alix Wilton Regan, has just come back from volunteering in Calais, and she said that the majority of people she met there were midwives, nurses, doctors and so on. Those are skills that we could use in our country; there is a shortage of such professionals in the UK at the moment. Does the hon. Lady agree that it would be mutually...

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I am proud to say that two local authorities in my constituency, Camden and Brent, have pledged to take in 50 families between them, despite staggering cuts in their local government budget and the fact that these families will cost between £29,000 and £40,000 per family per year. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the Government should work with these local authorities to help them to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Private Rented Sector (8 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Many of the 33% of my constituents who rent privately have been the victim of revenge evictions. Shelter has estimated that in a calendar year 4,000 people in my constituency were victims of revenge evictions and 200,000 people across the country suffered from rogue landlords. The Minister has been speaking about how much work the Government have been doing, but will he clarify what impact...

Local Government Funding — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester West (Liz Kendall) on securing a debate that is close to my heart. I was a councillor before I entered Parliament, and I saw at first hand the effects of the Government’s policies because I was in charge of a £22 million budget. The Chancellor will often talk about...

Local Government Funding — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. Yes, I have seen real-life examples of the situations she describes. We could focus on many vulnerable groups, but I particularly want to mention people with mental health problems. The Prime Minister has said over and over that we should have a frank discussion about people with mental health problems and not talk about them in hushed tones or...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing: Prisons and Probation (27 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The right hon. Gentleman may be aware that the number of attacks on our prison staff has increased by 42%, and these range from severe cuts to damages to internal organs and fractures. In order to keep safe the people who, as he has outlined, work so hard in our prisons, will he order a review into safety at work for prison staff?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (25 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Swiss Cottage School in my constituency is an outstanding school that looks after children with special, complex and emotional needs. Regrettably, it is having to turn away pupils because of limited capacity. Does the Secretary of State believe that her Department is doing enough to look after children with special, complex and emotional needs, and does she believe that there is adequate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: My 24-year-old constituent Lara is in urgent need of a stem cell donor. Her family’s campaign, Match4Lara, is attracting global support. On Saturday, the O2 Centre in my constituency will run a spit drive to get as many people as possible on to the bone marrow register. Will the Prime Minister join me at that event on Saturday, and will he send a message of support to those working to keep...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thoroughly disagree with the hon. Gentleman when he says that this is exactly the same. It is not exactly the same: Donald Trump has said that he wants to ban all Muslims because of their religion. That is 1.6 billion people who he wants to ban, because of their religion. The reason why some Members are asking for him to be banned is the rhetoric, the sentiment and the values that he has...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Lady, who is also my constituent, for giving way. Does she know that in the 24 hours after Nick Griffin had the platform of appearing on “Question Time”, 3,000 people joined the BNP?

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The hon. Lady cites 14 cases of people who have been banned. Has she considered the 84 hate preachers who are banned? If so, she will see that there is a striking resemblance between what was said by Donald Trump and by two bloggers who were banned two years ago by the Conservative Home Secretary. Will she comment on whether the same should apply to Donald Trump?

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The London mayoral candidate from the Labour party, my right hon. Friend the Member for Tooting (Sadiq Khan), is of Muslim origin. Under Donald Trump, he would not be allowed to travel to America. Will the hon. Gentleman comment on that?

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Does the hon. Gentleman think that this country’s legislation should be applied equally to everyone?

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The arguments over why we are having this debate have already been articulated by the speakers who came before me—my hon. Friend the Member for Newport West (Paul Flynn) and the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Paul Scully). I want to discuss why this online petition, which has been signed by 3,000 of my constituents in Hampstead and Kilburn, has evoked such emotion. Is it because Donald...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I think the question has been answered for the hon. Gentleman. I looked at the cases of the 84 hate preachers who have not been allowed into the country. I want to highlight the case of a female blogger—I will not name her, but hon. Members are welcome to look her up—who was banned from entering our country. I looked at the rhetoric she used. Her crime was to equate the views of the...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The hon. Gentleman should think carefully about what he just said. That is not the same as our deciding not to let into the country someone whose views fall short of the Home Office guidance. My hon. Friend the Member for Newport West outlined Donald Trump’s views about Mexicans and black people. Do not forget that Donald Trump ran a dog-whistle campaign to see Barack Obama’s birth...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. When Megyn Kelly asked Donald Trump on Fox News to explain why he called some women “‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals’”, he replied, “What I say is what I say.” Is that the kind of man we want in our country? I thoroughly anticipate the rebuttal that we cannot exclude people merely because they offend us...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Donald Trump (18 Jan 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Of course, I do not lay all the blame for the increase in hate crime at Donald Trump’s door, but there is a correlation between the words he uses and the increase in hate crime. The point is that his words lead to real crime and violence. That is where I draw the line on freedom of speech.
