Prime Minister’s Statement (19 Oct 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: The Prime Minister used the phrase “European friends” over and over again in his statement, and we in this House know that he likes to treat his friends with great generosity. Bearing that in mind, will he distance himself from the comments last week of the Security Minister, who said that our European friends in this country could face deportation if they did not get settled status by...

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: After nine years of austerity, there is a huge funding gap in the early years sector, so I was shocked to hear not a single mention of the sector in the Queen’s Speech. Will the Leader of the House therefore commit to having a specific debate on the closure of Sure Start centres and nurseries across the country?

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Oct 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, following the release of one Australian-British national who was also imprisoned at Evin prison.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Oct 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: My constituent Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been imprisoned in Iran for three and a half years, during which time she has been in solitary confinement, she has been chained to her bed and shackled, she has been through depression, she has been suicidal, she has been on hunger strike and they have found lumps on her breast. Among all that, one of her biggest traumas is the changing fortunes...

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: rose—

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: I had better make a good point now! The Minister has been making a powerful speech, and I welcome this Bill, but I have to reiterate the point about migrant women. Leaders of the non-governmental organisation Liberty argue that migrant women face an “impossible” situation “where they are forced to choose between the risk of detention/deportation or staying in a situation of violence.”...

Arms Export Licences (Saudi Arabia) (26 Sep 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: When is the inquiry due to report back?

Iran (25 Sep 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: Last year, in an urgent question about Nazanin, the Minister for the Middle East at the time said to me that “we do not share the view that the IMS debt or any other bilateral issue is the reason for Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s detention.”—[Official Report, 22 May 2018; Vol. 641, c. 729.] This sentiment was echoed to me in a private meeting with the Prime Minister and Nazanin’s...

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: The EU package travel directive protects those who are travelling if their package holiday has been cancelled. Does the Secretary of State believe that we should be retaining this protection for future generations of travellers?

Hacker House (25 Sep 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: The Times revealed today that the Prime Minister previously planned to set up a £100 million fund with the owner of Hacker House. May I remind Members that, as Mayor of London, the Prime Minister oversaw the Garden Bridge project, which was the subject of allegations of corruption and was riddled with conflicts of interest? Will the Minister reassure the House that there will be no further...

Points of Order (9 Sep 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Most Members have served under you for a lot longer than I have, but it would be remiss of me not to thank you now for supporting me at a time when my life was in danger. I will not go into the details, but I wanted to thank you for providing me with a lot of protection during a very dark hour in my life. While we are talking about life and death, I also want...

Deferred Divisions: Early Parliamentary General Election (4 Sep 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: I, too, will not vote for a general election tonight. I do not want no deal, because it will harm not only my constituents but the 22,000 EU nationals who are living in my constituency. The Home Secretary has said that freedom of movement will end at midnight on 31 October.

Situation in the Gulf (22 Jul 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: I hear what the Foreign Secretary has said about not linking the situation in Hormuz with that of my constituent Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, but with the best will in the world he must be aware that the Iranians have previously used my constituent as a bargaining chip. He must also be aware that, only last week, the supreme leader promised retribution for the dispute over Grace 1. As the...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (17 Jul 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to provide an update on the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (17 Jul 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: Mr Speaker, thank you for granting this urgent question and for taking the time to visit Richard Ratcliffe, Nazanin’s husband, while he was on hunger strike outside the Iranian embassy two weeks ago. Indeed, I thank the more than 100 Members of this House who visited Richard, sending a strong message to Iran that while it may continue to abuse Nazanin’s human rights, we will be listening...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (17 Jul 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. You have already indulged me today, so I hope you will indulge me a little further while I read out a message from Richard Ratcliffe, my constituent. He says: “On behalf of Nazanin’s whole family, I want to thank the Speaker and the House from the bottom of my heart for the support, compassion and empathy that you have shown us in these troubled times. We...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Jan 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe following punitive actions taken against her in Iran.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (7 Jan 2019)

Tulip Siddiq: Most hon. Members will be aware of my constituent, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has now been imprisoned in Iran for nearly three years, separated from her family, her husband and her daughter. She was on holiday in Tehran visiting her parents with her young daughter when she was imprisoned. The United Nations has declared her imprisonment to be illegal and arbitrary, yet her treatment in...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: In addition to the farce that was facing the country yesterday, one of the biggest consequences will be the impact that this has on the 22,000 EU nationals living in my constituency. The settled scheme status is still being developed. The Home Office app for registration has been branded absolutely “useless” by academics. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the limbo facing this House...

Immigration (Time Limit on Detention) (5 Dec 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision for a maximum period of detention under the Immigration Act 1971 of 28 days; and for connected purposes. I realise that I have chosen to introduce my first ten-minute rule Bill in a very quiet week in Parliament, but I hope that colleagues from across the House will indulge me as I speak about a campaign that I am very...
