Will the Prime Minister join me, my hon. Friend the...

Taliban and is/Daesh Attacks: Afghanistan (29 Jan 2018)

Rehman Chishti: My thoughts are very much with the people of Afghanistan. The Minister talked about Pakistan. I chair the all-party parliamentary group on Pakistan.

Unduly Lenient Sentences (6 Dec 2017)

Rehman Chishti: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend for securing the debate. He has mentioned his time as a Transport Minister.

Hormone Pregnancy Tests (16 Nov 2017)

Rehman Chishti: I have a constituent who has been affected by this issue, and they want justice. Based on what I have heard today, justice has fallen short in this case.
