Food Insecurity in Developing Countries due to Blockade of Ukrainian Ports - Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2022)

Lord Hastings of Scarisbrick: ...his mother was unable to feed him. We assisted and all will be well, but it brought it home in such sharp relief: ordinary people struggling with difficult and complex backgrounds are fighting again for the basics of survival. As always, and as we have heard in so many other speeches, the noble Lord, Lord Alton, gave us a litany of statistics that have come in the endless briefs, which...

Human Rights Abuses and Corruption: UK Sanctions (21 Jul 2022)

Chris Bryant: The right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) and I are tango partners in this—or a tag team, perhaps, depending on which way you want to look at it. I endorse everything he said at the beginning of his speech, but I will start with Iran. This year, Nazanin Zaghari-Radcliffe and Anoosheh Ashoori, two British citizens, were finally allowed to return to the UK...

Xinjiang Internment Camps: Shoot-to-Kill Policy (24 May 2022)

Iain Duncan Smith: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Wealden (Ms Ghani) on gaining the urgent question and you, Mr Speaker, on having the foresight to grant it. I say to my hon. Friend the Minister that in essence this is really not good enough. We have been going on about this for some time. The Government still cannot decide whether there is genocide—we, alone among all the developed nations,...

Economic Affairs Committee - Membership Motions (12 May 2022)

...the following members be appointed to the Committee: Evans of Bowes Park, B, Gardiner of Kimble, L (Deputy Chair), German, L, Hill of Oareford, L, Judge, L, McFall of Alcluith, L (Chair), Newby, L, Smith of Basildon, B, Touhig, L, Vaux of Harrowden, L. That Mathew Duncan and Nora Senior be appointed as external members of the Committee; That the Committee have power to send for persons,...

Hong Kong Arrests Under National Security Law (12 May 2022)

Layla Moran: I thank the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) for securing this important urgent question. I feel that in the five years I have been here, there has been a repeated deterioration in the situation in Hong Kong. Words are one thing, but action is something else. We should absolutely put in place sanctions, but Hong Kong Watch recently produced a report...

Nationality and Borders Bill: After Clause 56 - Age assessments: restrictions (22 Mar 2022)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith), with whom I agree. I also agreed with pretty much everything said by the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch), so I can be fairly brief. The hon. Member for Halifax was right to say at the outset that, again, it is frustrating that the Government do not appear to...

Iran Detainees (16 Mar 2022)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...here: when states behave beyond the rule of law, we need to act swiftly and immediately isolate them with sanctions. If the unlawful taking of prisoners in a case like this ever happens again, the west must unite—the whole world must unite—in immediately bringing sanctions against those countries such that the pain they feel outweighs any gain they think they may receive.

Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill: Clause 1 - Overview (7 Mar 2022)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...other amendments. New clause 10 is really about the issue of debate in this House and being able to scrutinise properly the nature of what is being done or not being done to those whose ill-gotten gains are being used for purposes they should not be. It would place an obligation on the Government to schedule a debate on the annual sanctions regulations report. I know that the Government...

Sanctions (22 Feb 2022)

Chris Bryant: I associate myself with everything that the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) has just said; I completely agree with him. Democracy is a very tender flower. We thought it was very robust and it would survive all weathers, but the truth is that it needs watering, care and tenderness. All too often, it is very easy for authoritarian regimes to trample...

Seals (Protection) (9 Feb 2022)

Tracey Crouch: ...overcome but none the less are still there. Seals are not without challenges but, sadly, they come from us humans. Like many people, I was horrified by the dog attack on Freddie the seal near Hammersmith bridge last year. I know through my work with Mary Tester, a British Divers Marine Life Rescue medic who was in charge of Freddie, how he brought joy to the local community and visitors...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 88A (15 Dec 2021)

Lord Dholakia: ...its stages in this House, but the general election intervened last time and halted its progress. Let me assure the House that the Bill is not going to be put into the long grass. I will come back again and again until we find some success in its implementation. I also thank the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, for her support of this amendment, the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, for his...

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Tim Loughton: ...with the ending of the temporary uplift, but the measure will be a practical help to 2 million families. I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) who made that possible in the first place. If we go back to the first principles of how he envisaged that universal credit would work in practice, it is about making work pay and...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Jeremy Hunt: ...more freedom, more prosperity, more respect for human rights across the globe than at any time in human history. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith) just said, those gains are now at risk, not just because of what happened this week but because of the rise of an authoritarian and wealthy China that actively opposes the open societies...

Nationality and Borders Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (19 Jul 2021)

Priti Patel: ...route that we opened up this year. We will always give people coming through safe resettlement schemes the support that they need, which is of course the right thing to do. From learning English to gaining employment and training, they will gain essential skills to build a new life in the UK. New pilots to support refugees into work are already happening. Community sponsorship schemes that...

Afghanistan (8 Jul 2021)

Boris Johnson: ...Afghanistan and the problems it faces. Of course, we have raised repeatedly with our American friends and other NATO colleagues the legacy that we wish to preserve in Afghanistan, particularly the gains made for women, and they understand that. In all candour, I must be honest and say that I do not think that the military options open to us are very great, and I think that people need to...

Finance Bill: New Clause 2 - Fiscal and economic impact of 2% non-resident surcharge (24 May 2021)

John Martin McDonnell: ...for action on a number of key issues, and all the appeals to the Government so far by the right hon. Members for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) and for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith), my hon. Friend the Member for Hackney South and Shoreditch (Meg Hillier), the hon. Members for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) and for Richmond Park (Sarah Olney) and others are...

BBC: Dyson Report (24 May 2021)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...Dyson report that has left us with a serious question? It relates to the behaviour of the then chairman and of Mr Bashir. Fraud is defined as a deception intended to result in financial or personal gain by false representation. There is no question from the report but that Mr Bashir made false representation to prey on a vulnerable woman to get her to do something that she would otherwise...

Committee of Selection - Membership Motions (13 May 2021)

...members together with the Senior Deputy Speaker be appointed to the Committee: Ashton of Hyde, L, Evans of Bowes Park, B, Coussins, B, Judge, L, McAvoy, L, Newby, L, Plant of Highfield, L, Smith of Basildon, B, Smith of Hindhead, L, Stoneham of Droxford, L. Built Environment Committee That a Select Committee be appointed to consider matters relating to the built environment, including...

Human Rights: Xinjiang (22 Apr 2021)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...any action that we may wish to take, so I want to make sure that when we talk about China and the environment, we no longer try to use it as a balancing point for why we should not take action against China in areas such as the genocide against Uyghur women, the treatment of Tibetans, the appalling treatment of inner Mongolians, the treatment of Christians, the organ harvesting of the...

Human Rights Update (22 Mar 2021)

Lisa Nandy: ...steps, for years he has not listened. He did not listen to his hon. Friend the Member for Wealden (Ms Ghani) or his right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith). He did not listen to us. He did not listen to the Board of Deputies. He did not listen to the World Uyghur Congress. Yet suddenly today the Foreign Secretary has discovered a new-found...
