Victims of Crime (Rights, Entitlements, and Notification of Child Sexual Abuse) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Jul 2019)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...other place—threats to be killed, raped or assaulted. It is disgusting and totally unacceptable and the perpetrators should be brought to justice. We have seen the disgusting abuse suffered by Diane Abbott, Stella Creasy, Jess Phillips, Heidi Allen, Anna Soubry, Luciana Berger and many other Members of the other place. It is completely disgraceful and out of order and firm action must be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Modern Slavery Act: Business Compliance (15 Jul 2019)

Diane Abbott: We on the Labour Benches appreciate the progress that has been made on modern slavery thus far, but the House will be aware that there was recently a shocking case of agricultural slavery. A fresh produce supplier to major US supermarkets was using slave labour in its supply chain. Does the Minister accept that consumers who are conscious of issues such as organic production and sustainable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Violent Crime: Young People (15 Jul 2019)

Diane Abbott: The Home Secretary referred to the new public health duty. The Opposition agree that it is a good idea in principle, but does the Home Secretary agree with the Children’s Commissioner for England, Anne Longfield, who has said that the change is not enough on its own and who is calling for the next Prime Minister, and perhaps his Chancellor, to ensure that preventive services such as youth...

Tier 5 Religious Worker Visas — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (4 Jul 2019)

Diane Abbott: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden) on securing this important debate about religious workers’ visas. For some time, the House has heard about the hostile environment, which would appear to be a hostile environment for religious ministers. The Government have cast the change as a matter of regulatory...

Violent Crime (17 Jun 2019)

Diane Abbott: Another blood-stained weekend in the capital, and this morning four families will have woken up having lost a son, a brother or a father. The Minister is correct to say that there is no single answer, and we congratulate the Met police on its work over this horrible weekend that we have endured, but does she accept that any strategy to combat rising crime must include hiring more police...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Victims: Compensation (10 Jun 2019)

Diane Abbott: The Minister has to begin to acknowledge communities’ grave concerns about the Windrush compensation scheme as it stands. They think that it is not working. She also needs to bear in mind that this is an ageing cohort, who will probably need more support on average than a cohort that is more mixed in age. The Home Secretary told the House in April last year that we “will do whatever it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Fire Services: Overnight Cover (10 Jun 2019)

Diane Abbott: We are approaching the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, which, as Members will know, happened overnight. The Grenfell residents had complained about their treatment by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and had specifically highlighted the fire risks, but they were ignored. What steps have the Government taken to ensure that similar warnings from those who know...

Illegal Seaborne Migration (4 Jun 2019)

Diane Abbott: I query the framing of the urgent question, which talks about “illegal seaborne migration”. We cannot know whether these people are genuine refugees until we have had the opportunity to examine their cases. I am glad the Minister mentioned the risk to life in the busiest sea lane in the world. We all agree that it is tragic that these men and women are the victims of organised crime and...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Online Hate Crime Hub: Online Hate Crime Hub (23 May 2019)

Shaun Bailey: Fair enough. Bearing that in mind, do you think it is acceptable for public figures such as [The Rt Hon] Diane Abbott [MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington] and Richard Burgon [MP for Leeds East] to stand alongside these people with the National Front (NF) when these statements are being made, and would you join me in asking them to distance themselves from this march?

Serious Violence (15 May 2019)

Diane Abbott: This is a very important subject, and it is at the forefront of many of our constituents’ minds. The House respects the fact that the Home Secretary chose to open this debate himself, even though we may not agree with some of his conclusions. Up and down the country, communities are haunted by the fear of the rising tide of violent crime. This is happening in metropolitan areas such as...
