Gulf of Oman Oil Tanker Attacks (17 Jun 2019)

Mike Gapes: The Minister rightly referred to a pattern of behaviour by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its Hezbollah and Houthi proxy allies. Could it be that the Iranian regime, or elements within it, wish to push up the world oil price at this time because their oil production is falling drastically and because of their internal economic crisis? Would it not be wiser to listen to our own...

Hong Kong (13 Jun 2019)

Mike Gapes: The Minister rightly criticised the Chinese ambassador’s remarks on “Newsnight” yesterday, but is this not part of a pattern, as has been said? Is it not clear that there is no independent judiciary in mainland China, so anybody who is either taken illegally—as has been the case in the past, as with the booksellers—or taken with the complicity of the Hong Kong Government authorities...

Free TV Licences: over-75S (11 Jun 2019)

Mike Gapes: It is not just this issue that is affected by the way the funding arrangements have changed. Until 2010, the BBC World Service was funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but £253 million in funding was stopped and the BBC was given the responsibility. Does the Secretary of State accept that the FCO has subsequently given money to the BBC for language services, so there is a...

Yemen Peace Process (23 May 2019)

Keith Vaz: ...for Gateshead (Ian Mearns), to give us time, for which we thank him. I thank the right hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Mr Mitchell), the hon.

Friends the Members for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen...

Whorlton Hall: Business of the House (23 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: I join colleagues in paying tribute to Philippa Helme for the advice she has given and wish her a happy retirement. Many people who turn up at polling stations today will be told that they are not able to vote. Even though they are legally entitled to vote, they will have not received postal vote envelopes from their local authorities in time, or they may be EU nationals who have not been...

Leaving the European Union (22 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: After weeks of negotiations between a pro-Brexit Prime Minister and a pro-Brexit Labour leadership, it is clear that we have not been able to get an agreement on the terms of this process. It is also clear that no Parliament can bind its successor and no lame-duck Prime Minister can bind her successor. Is it not clear that this Parliament is unable to resolve these matters and that we should...

Definition of Islamophobia (16 May 2019)

Imran Hussain: First, I thank all those who have taken part in this important debate. In particular, I thank the hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes) and the right hon.

Friend the Member for Bradford West (Naz Shah), and perhaps others, have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hezbollah (14 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: I too welcome the Minister. Will he confirm that Hezbollah is in Syria working as a proxy for the Iranian regime and the Assad Government, and has played a malign role, killing many, many innocent people in the Syrian conflict?

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: European Parliament: Elections (14 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, if he will respond to (a) the letter sent to him on 28 April by the organisation New Europeans, (b) Early Day motion 2357, tabled on 1 May and (c) the oral contribution of the hon. Member for Ilford South, of 9 May 2019 on EU citizens voting in the European election on 23 May 2019.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: European Parliament: Elections (14 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, if he will take steps to ensure that EU citizens in the UK who wish to vote in the EU elections are able to do so by (a) making the UC1 form which EU citizens need to complete in order to declare they are not voting in another EU member state available at all polling stations on 23 May 2019; (b) instructing all local authorities to write by...

Acquired Brain Injury: Death of John Smith: 25th Anniversary (9 May 2019)

Neil Gray: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes) and to contribute to this debate, not just on behalf of the Scottish National party but on behalf of my constituents, many of whom were also John Smith’s constituents. I congratulate the hon. Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) on securing the debate. I supported his application for it, and I am grateful to the...

Business of the House (9 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: It has been apparent for some months that it was almost certain that we would be fighting the European elections, but yesterday the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster confirmed it. As a result of the late confirmation, a large number of local authorities have failed to send out forms or adequately ensure that the millions of European Union citizens in this country entitled to vote will be...

TV Licences for over-75S: Select Committee Membership (8 May 2019)

Chris Leslie: ...and Equalities Committee, the hon. Member for Barrow and Furness (John Woodcock) being taken off the Home Affairs Committee, and the recent loss of my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes) from the Foreign Affairs Committee—we have no right of redress. As a new political party, Change UK, we are not part of the usual channels conversations. It is strange that we have not...

Iran Nuclear Deal (8 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: The millions of young people in Iran who have suffered under the oppressive theocratic regime were hopeful that the JCPOA would lead to an easing of sanctions, which would in turn lead to economic benefits, but because of the incompetence and corruption of the regime, that easing of sanctions has not had the economic impact for which they hoped. Can we send a clear message to the people of...

Places of Worship: Security Funding (7 May 2019)

Mike Gapes: The London Borough of Redbridge has one of the most diverse communities in the country, with gurdwaras, Hindu temples, mosques, Buddhist viharas and churches of all kinds. We also have a very active faith forum. Will the Home Secretary encourage his officials to do more to pursue a policy of interfaith dialogue and co-operation because, ultimately, it is through understanding and co-operation...
