Liberal Democrat MP for Streatham (6 May 2010 – current)
John Hemming: I have here a copy of a newspaper dated 14 October in which Chuka Umunna is described as the "Labour Party parliamentary candidate for Streatham". What will the Labour party say to him if the Bill becomes law?
Keith Hill: ...at the next general election. So, if this rich man far outstrips what I can spend on communications as the MP, how much more unfair is it for my successor as the Labour candidate for Streatham, Chuka Umunna, to depend largely on the donations of Labour party members? The Lib Dem candidate in the Streatham constituency is outspending me by a ratio of more than 10:1 and outspending the next...

Chuka Umunna: My understanding is that the credit rating agencies are not subject to any proper UK regulation at the moment and that some action is being taken at EU level in that regard. Does the Chancellor see any place in the new arrangements for UK regulation of the credit rating agencies, which, of course, bear a large responsibility for what happened in the sub-prime crisis?
Chuka Umunna: On 26 May, the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury came to the House and said in answer to an urgent question on the future jobs fund that Government "policy...has to be informed by the facts, and...advice...from the Department for Work and Pensions". He added that that advice was that the fund "was...not effective and that the money was wasted."-[ Official Report, 26 May 2010; Vol. 510,...
Chuka Umunna: Again and again, the Chief Secretary, his predecessor and the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions come to the House and assert that the future jobs fund is an ineffective scheme. How can the Chief Secretary say that when the Department for Work and Pensions has not collected the data concerned? The first cohort of young people to take part in the scheme have only just finished, and the...

Chuka Umunna: I have listened with interest to the various speeches made today and I do not think anybody denies the need to reduce the deficit. Neither do I think that my fellow Labour Members think that the answers all lie with government, but the big decisions that we are taking at the moment are about judgment and the direction in which we think economic strategy should go. I want to pose some...
