Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (2 Jun 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: The planned closure of a GP surgery in my constituency means that more than 1,000 patients will have to go elsewhere to seek basic primary care needs. Local doctors are particularly concerned about the impact this will have on the A&E department at the Royal Free hospital. Will the Minister agree to meet me and local doctors to address those concerns and to ensure that the future of GP...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Sustainable Development Goals (3 Jun 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: In 2011, British climate scientists said that the famine in Somalia was caused in part by low rainfall, to which climate change contributed. Does the Secretary of State agree that tackling climate change as a single, stand-alone target should be included in the SDGs, or will the Government continue to treat it as an afterthought?

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Housing (10 Jun 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: A number of new builds in my constituency are being bought by foreign buyers, meaning that local people are not getting a look in. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government need to undertake a review of whether foreign buyers are renting out or occupying the lands they are buying?

European Union Referendum Bill: Clause 1 — The referendum (16 Jun 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: It gives me great pleasure to make my maiden speech during the Committee stage of the European Union Referendum Bill—a topic that is close to my heart and the hearts of my constituents in Hampstead and Kilburn. Indeed, this topic cropped up frequently in the 22 hustings that we had during the election period and was raised by many people. It is indicative of the debate that goes on in my...

Recruitment and Retention of Teachers (18 Jun 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: Teacher workload is often cited as a major reason for the increased problems with teacher retention. Forty-four per cent. of teachers in the Department for Education teachers workload survey said that their time spent on doing unnecessary and bureaucratic tasks has increased under the Conservative Government. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government should investigate what those...

Opposition Day: 3rd Alloted day — A&E Services (24 Jun 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: In the coming winter months the Royal Free hospital in my constituency will once again face pressure in A&E and other services. Does my hon. Friend agree that the extra winter NHS funding should be allocated sooner rather than later so that hospitals can start planning, and that it should be included in the forthcoming Budget?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (1 Jul 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: A report published today by Children’s Rights Alliance for England points to a dismal failure by the Government when considering the best interests of children and young people in their decision making. Bearing that in mind, does the Minister agree that giving 16 and 17-year-olds the right to vote in the EU referendum would be a first, positive step towards greater inclusion of young people...

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: Going back to the question of tax credits, does my hon. Friend agree that they gave a boost to employment, and especially to the employment of families with a single parent? Between 1997 and 2010, employment in that group increased by 28%.

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: I thought that I would use my time in this debate to speak about the real victims of last week’s Budget: children in this country who have suffered because of the savage blows that have been imposed on their services and the support structure that we provide for them. This savage attack is twofold. First, child benefit has been frozen for the next four years, not taking into account the...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Housing Supply (London) (15 Jul 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Housing Supply (London) (15 Jul 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: Of my constituents in Hampstead and Kilburn, 33% rent privately. Bearing that in mind, does my hon. Friend agree that we should think about a national register of accredited landlords, to weed out the abuse in the system and the revenge evictions that still happen, even though they are technically banned?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Disabled Facilities Grant (14 Sep 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: Given the Government’s dismal record of selling off council housing and extending it to housing associations, what steps is the Minister taking to ensure that our remaining council housing stock has adequate disabled provision and access for those who need it?

National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill (Programme): High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill (15 Sep 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: I agree that constituents should be allowed to petition, but there is a fee for petitioning. Will the Minister consider getting rid of that fee to allow easy access for those who might not be financially able to petition?

National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill (Programme): High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill (15 Sep 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: Like my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer), I agree with the right to give residents the opportunity to come and petition if they feel that High Speed 2 is not affecting their areas in the way it should. I should make it clear that my overall stance is to oppose HS2. I have been campaigning against it for six years. I was a councillor for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS: Winter Pressures (13 Oct 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: The Royal Free hospital in my constituency is at the cutting edge of medical research and is currently treating Ebola patient Pauline Cafferkey. I am sure the Secretary of State will join me in wishing her a speedy recovery, yet the hospital faced considerable winter pressures last year. Will the Secretary of State work with the fantastic nurses and doctors at the Royal Free to ensure these...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Tax Credits (20 Oct 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: I want to spend the short time I have focusing on the disproportionate effect these tax credit cuts will have on the black and minority ethnic communities. Some 88% of these communities are based in the poorest boroughs in the country. They tend to have larger families and these families are often sustained by people who have part-time jobs. Fresh from my Royal Statistical Society training...
