International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 Sep 2014)

Adam Holloway: As a former trustee of Christian Aid and television foreign correspondent, I agree that we must support the poorest people in the world, but does the hon. Lady not agree that it is completely crazy for a deeply indebted nation to ring-fence any spending, especially when we are failing in our first duty by cutting defence spending?

Caste Discrimination (9 Jul 2014)

Adam Holloway: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dr McCrea, and I thank the Minister for allowing me to ruin her afternoon.

I went to the Brandon street gurdwara in Gravesend a few months ago, and I was amazed by the strength of feeling over a petition on caste discrimination....

Caste Discrimination (9 Jul 2014)

Adam Holloway: The Government will tell us in a moment, which is part of the reason why I have called this debate. On 1 March, the Minister present made a statement. She announced that the Government were thinking of taking an educational approach to this and would use Talk for a Change. However, the NIESR criticised that, saying that it only raises awareness and does not assist people being discriminated...

Caste Discrimination (9 Jul 2014)

Adam Holloway: I will come on to that, and I know that the work that the Minister is doing also applies to it. There has been recent court action. There was the successful case of Tirkey v. Chandok, in which the claim for caste discrimination was allowed. However, these are just what I think are called first instance decisions and are not binding. According to Swan Turton Solicitors, there was a conflicting...

Caste Discrimination (9 Jul 2014)

Adam Holloway: That is a great point. What my hon. Friend is talking about is the fact that in our areas we have a lot of Sikhs, and of course among the central tenets of the Sikh faith are tolerance, equality and so on. I know that the Sikhs, certainly on our shared patch, are working on it, but this occurs far more widely across the south Asian communities in our country. What is the reason for saying...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Mar 2014)

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Sri Harmandir Sahib (4 Feb 2014)

Adam Holloway: As a former Army officer who represents a constituency with a large number of Sikhs, I thank the Foreign Secretary and the Prime Minister for the serious and rigorous way they have approached this issue. Will the Foreign Secretary confirm that had the distinguished SAS Major’s advice been taken, there would have been a much lower level of violence? Indeed, if that advice had been taken in...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Accident and Emergency: Food Banks (18 Dec 2013)

Adam Holloway: Some years ago I spent five months living homeless in London among the dispossessed and the mentally ill. [Interruption.] It was for a television programme; Opposition Members should try it. Does the Minister agree that food banks can be enormously helpful for people with very chaotic lifestyles?

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Backbench business — Intelligence and Security Services (31 Oct 2013)

Adam Holloway: If in the last few weeks, we had lost a city to nuclear terrorism or there had been a gigantic mass casualty, I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman’s constituents would see Edward Snowden as a trendy, cool whistleblower or as a traitor.

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Backbench business — Intelligence and Security Services (31 Oct 2013)

Adam Holloway: I welcome this debate. I was making a simple point about Edward Snowden and whether the hon. Gentleman’s constituents would think he was a terrorist in the event that what I described had happened. I did not even mention The Guardian.

Syria and the Use of Chemical Weapons (29 Aug 2013)

Adam Holloway: Am I alone in feeling a sense of unreality that we in here seem to be talking about intervening in a civil war in Syria, when the people out there are not?

Backbench Business — Arms to Syria (11 Jul 2013)

Adam Holloway: Last year, when I was in north-east Lebanon, I went to a village that had been shelled by the Syrian regime. I met a woman who had just come over the border. She had lost her children, her husband and her legs when she was hit by a Syrian army shell while fleeing from her village. Imagine being in a village in England with the Royal Artillery shelling the village, then being harried by the...
