Offensive Weapons Bill: Offence of threatening with an offensive weapon etc in a private place (28 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I rise to speak in support of my new clause 26, and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh) for her support in that. I also, surprisingly, thank the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) for his support for the amendment, although I am disappointed that he did not say that I am one of the nicest people in the House—perhaps I can prove that to him...

Housing Bodies: Accountability — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend for bringing this important debate before the House. Many of the concerns that he has cited, and those I am sure he will be citing later, have been represented to me by my constituents who face similar issues, especially Robert Taylor from the Camden Federation of Private Tenants. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is high time that a Select Committee inquiry takes...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: Does the Minister think it is the right way forward—even if, as I understand it, this is the agreement that we have reached—that if someone has been out of the country for five years for any reason, their status is not settled?

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: The petition, signed by more than 100,000 people, states that if the Government fail to reach an agreement with the EU by the deadline, Brexit should be stopped. After last week’s chaos, who can blame those who signed it? Tory infighting is usually something I would welcome, because it is fun to watch blue on blue, but Brexit transcends party politics. We have 130 days left before we crash...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I agree, and I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I will read a few of the words that the Prime Minister has said about the EU nationals living here. I repeat that 22,000 EU nationals live in Hampstead and Kilburn. The Prime Minister has repeatedly told the House and Members that even in the case of no deal, EU citizens will have their rights protected. However, to choose just...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I agree that that is absolutely ridiculous. It also goes against all our British values of welcoming people. In the Prime Minister’s CBI speech, EU migrants were told that they would lose their place in the queue for employment opportunities. We are at a pivotal point in our history. Do we want to become a Trumpian society in which we demonise migrants and do not make them feel welcome? Or...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. Perhaps the Minister can answer that question, as well as my long list of questions. Have the promises of Vote Leave materialised? If not, should not the public be given another say on the deal that is reached? Does the draft deal stand a chance of passing through the Commons, in the light of dissent from across the House? If not, should not...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I agree with my hon. Friend. I hope that the leader goes on another holiday, so that we have an opportunity to choose another leader for the country. Does the Minister believe that a no-deal scenario, with all the chaos that it will cause, is a viable path for our country? If not, should not the public be given a say on the deal that cannot be reached? It has for some time been clear to me,...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: When we went to the ballot box on that fateful June day, there was only one question on the ballot paper: “Do you want to leave the European Union or not?” All those people arguing that it became a proxy vote on immigration—I agree that it was—and about all the other associations with the vote should remember that. It was not a sensible way to run a referendum that I did not agree...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: History will probably show that we did not always get it right. I am not resistant to change. It is because I respect democracy that I think we need a people’s vote. I respect people’s opinions and the right to change one’s mind once a decision has been taken. Democracy in the UK did not begin and end with the referendum in 2016, and it certainly does not end after two years of shoddy...

Plastic-free Packaging (Fruit and Vegetables) — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) for his speech. He expressed many of the sentiments that I was hoping to express, but there is always repetition in debates. I am glad we all agree that we need to reduce the amount of plastic used in supermarkets. As the hon. Gentleman said, the world has manufactured more plastic in the past decade than in the whole of the...

Plastic-free Packaging (Fruit and Vegetables) — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Nov 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I will mention schoolchildren later in my speech. It is important that we educate children and put recycling into the education system—I grew up not learning anything about recycling—so I will call on the Minister to do that. Plastic can be recycled only a finite number of times. Recycling stems the tide of plastic waste going into...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: As with previous Budgets from this Government, the measures outlined in this one will do nothing to reassure my constituents who are facing such financial difficulties. The cuts to local authority budgets, whether £169 million from Camden’s budget or £164 million from Brent’s budget, are resulting in the closure of police stations, fire stations and jobcentres in the most deprived parts...

Autism and Learning Disability Training: Healthcare Professionals — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (22 Oct 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Cheryl. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) for a moving and harrowing account of what happened to Oliver, and to the hon. Member for Kingswood (Chris Skidmore), the local MP, who has campaigned tirelessly on this issue. I also pay tribute to Paula McGowan, who has shown such bravery in...

Autism and Learning Disability Training: Healthcare Professionals — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (22 Oct 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend that the issue is not confined to the healthcare services. It crosses borders, and she made an effective point about the police and others dealing with the challenges of autism that arise in everyday life.

Autism and Learning Disability Training: Healthcare Professionals — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (22 Oct 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: Similar things come up in my surgeries. People come in and complain bitterly about the way they have been treated, simply because they have not been understood by service providers, whether at the Department for Work and Pensions when they needed social security, or elsewhere. I would like the Minister to address how she will ensure that those with learning disabilities and their families...

Housing and Home Ownership — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (16 Oct 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Gentleman for bringing this debate to the House. His suggestions are good. Does he think that housing provision for people with disabilities should be improved as well? At a sitting of the Select Committee of which I am a member last week, I argued that the Government should implement approved document M4(2). It sounds a bit wordy, but that is about making new homes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: If she will list her official engagements for Wednesday 5 September.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: My constituent Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was released temporarily for three days last month before being hauled back to prison in Iran. Worse still, when she was on furlough, she was contacted by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and told that if she attempted to contact the British Embassy, her family would be harmed. I find it deeply troubling that a British citizen was threatened against...

Proxy Voting (18 Jul 2018)

Tulip Siddiq: This morning, as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on child care and early education, I hosted a lobby consisting of more than 100 nursery and childcare providers. They spoke to me at great length about the challenges that new parents face when they go back to their workplaces, and about maternity discrimination. Does the Leader of the House think that we, here in the House, have the...
