Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Childcare (14 Nov 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I note the Minister’s earlier response, but I am sure she is aware that of the nurseries that responded to her very own consultation on free childcare, half said that they were desperately in need of funding and a quarter said that they were not receiving enough money to cover their basic costs. In the run-up to the general election, the Conservative party promised millions of people in...

Homelessness Reduction Bill (28 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) for bringing this important Bill forward to the House; I also thank my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) for all her work in generating and fostering cross-party support for the Bill. The hon. Member for Harrow East has already mentioned the staggering figures for people sleeping rough in London The...

Exiting the European Union: London (20 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The Government’s shocking record on tackling air pollution is well documented, with almost 10,000 associated deaths in London in just one year. Given that the Government regularly flout EU regulations on air pollution even now, what assurance can the Minister give me that once we exit the European Union, they will not simply abandon all legal protection on air pollution in the capital and,...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (20 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: In Camden, where I live, the Back to Business and FastForward programmes benefit enormously from the European social fund. Those programmes create a more inclusive labour market employing 400 people in my constituency, many of whom are disabled. Will the Minister outline what plans he has to protect the funding for such programmes, which promote social inclusivity?

Baby Loss: Independent Living: Disabled People (13 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Owing to the lack of time in the debate, I will focus mainly on the causes of the extra costs rather than the well-trodden path of existing support payments, although I acknowledge from the outset that the battle to manage the extra costs is made all the more difficult by the fact that state support is increasingly difficult to obtain. As most people will be aware, the Government are...

Baby Loss: Independent Living: Disabled People (13 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. Like her constituent Mary, others want to live independently and not be humiliated in their everyday living, and it is being made more difficult for them. The other point I should add in respect of my hon. Friend’s point is that people who are severely disabled are at the bottom of the ladder when it comes to receiving payments. The consequences...

Baby Loss: Independent Living: Disabled People (13 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. I have seen real-life instances of what she describes in my constituency. I agree that we need to do more to ensure that Transport for London makes both buses and tube stations more accessible. Indeed, only 4% of the tube stations in London have full wheelchair access. I am proud to say that our station here in Westminster has full wheelchair...

Baby Loss: Independent Living: Disabled People (13 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. I absolutely agree with him and recognise all the hard work he has done to secure the voices of black cab drivers in his area. Not long ago I was in a black cab with him and the driver instantly recognised him because of all the hard work he has been doing—he did not recognise me at all. My hon. Friend has been championing the voices of black cab...

Baby Loss: Independent Living: Disabled People (13 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I decided to call this debate because I wanted to highlight the cost of living people for disabled people. The truth is that disabled people should be able to learn, work and live independently without facing a financial penalty. Unfortunately, however, that is not the case. Whether because of a huge digital divide, or a wheelchair charge in taxis, or unaffordable social care, disabled people...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I would like to come back to a point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell). The fairer early years funding plan has created a ticking time bomb for nurseries. Figures revealed by the Secretary of State’s own Department show that 25% of local authorities across the country will lose out financially. I am afraid that her earlier answer will do nothing to...

Quantitative Easing: Financial Services: EU Markets (15 Sep 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: My hon. Friend is outlining a lot of concerns that have been raised by my constituents in Hampstead and Kilburn. The Office for National Statistics found that 1,000 of my constituents are employed in financial and insurance services. During this divorce, as he puts it, their daily commute is riddled with uncertainty, because of the possibility of relocation or, much worse, redundancy. Does he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Global Tax Evasion (19 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: What steps his Department has taken to tackle global tax evasion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Global Tax Evasion (19 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The Panama papers revealed what most of us had long suspected—that the super-rich enjoy manipulating the tax system—but I was astonished to learn in a written response from the former Chancellor that the £10 million multi-agency taskforce set up to investigate those revelations still does not have the Panama papers in its possession. Will the Minister clarify what the £10 million has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: As a proud Londoner, I believe that we must have greater control over taxes and public services, especially in the light of Brexit. I know that my friend Sadiq Khan has ambitious plans for London. Will the Chancellor commit to an initial devolution deal for London in his first autumn statement?

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (12 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my right hon. Friend for securing the debate. Even though the hospital is not in my constituency, much of what she describes happens in hospitals in my constituency and just outside it. At Central Middlesex hospital, which is just outside my constituency but serves many of my constituents, healthcare provision has also been affected by cuts. A recent inspection by the CQC similar to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Thank you, Mr Speaker. My constituent Nazanin has been detained in Iran for 100 days now, with no access to lawyers and minimal contact with her three-year-old daughter. Will the Minister join me in formally denouncing the actions of the Iranian authorities and make sure that Nazanin and Gabriella are returned to their home in West Hampstead as soon as possible?

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — NHS in London (24 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. I apologise, because I have to run off in half an hour for an appointment at the Royal Free hospital’s maternity unit. The birth rate is the highest since the 1970s, yet maternity wards in London have been closing left, right and centre. Elizabeth Duff from the National Childbirth Trust has pointed out how disruptive that is to...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — NHS in London (24 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: As my hon. Friend is aware, junior doctors are poised to withdraw emergency cover for 48 hours in April. Does she agree that the Health Secretary’s comments, such as those about the British Medical Association being “brilliantly clever at winding everyone up on social media”, show his total disregard for medical professionals who are quite capable of knowing a bad deal when they see it?

High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill: New Clause 6 — Chilterns AONB Review Group (23 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: New clauses 34 and 35, which I tabled, relate to construction at Canterbury Works and Alexandra Place in my constituency. I shall say something about the environmental impacts, but before that I want to make a point about the poor communication on the part of HS2, which has also been mentioned by Conservative Members. Last October, along with volunteers, I delivered letters to constituents...
