British Prisoners in Iran (18 Jul 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. and learned Lady for her intervention. A full Public Gallery and the number of emails received by hon. Members show how strongly people feel about the sheer injustice of this case. Facebook groups of which I am a member, Hampstead Mums and Mums of West Hampstead, normally never get in touch with their MP, but they have been in touch about this case, because it resonates with...

British Prisoners in Iran (18 Jul 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention and her support. I thank all Members from across the House who have pledged their support. This is not a party political issue; this is about constructive working to ensure that we achieve the release of prisoners of conscience who are our citizens. I have a few more questions for the Minister to answer in his summing up. Will the Government state...

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that legislation already exists to protect those who are abused online, but that legislation is often ignored or not enforced. Will he join me in putting pressure on the Government to launch a review to see why that is the case?

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: My right hon. Friend will be aware that Camden Council has done the testing in my constituency and, as a result, has evacuated more than 3,000 people from the Chalcots estate. The council is spending its own money to try to ensure that the buildings are fit for purpose before the residents are placed in them again. Does he agree that the Government should be giving financial support to...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the constituents of Hampstead and Kilburn, who helped me to increase my majority from 1,000 to 15,500. It is a pleasure to be back here. I also want to thank the nurses and doctors at the Royal Free hospital in my constituency. Members will be aware of the tragedy of Grenfell Tower, but they may not be aware that 12 people from the tower were rushed to the Royal Free for treatment,...

Grenfell Tower Fire/Fire Safety (26 Jun 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the Secretary of State for rightly commending the bravery of the 3,000 residents who were evacuated from their homes in my constituency on Friday. In the past few days, residents have repeatedly brought up the closure of Belsize fire station, which was 500 metres away from the tower block in question. Will the Secretary of State give his support to reopening Belsize fire station,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: During the EU referendum campaign, the now Foreign Secretary urged people to

London Attacks (23 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: My hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne Central (Chi Onwurah) mentioned the House of Commons staff, who showed exemplary behaviour in the face of adversity yesterday. I want to pay particular tribute to the nursery manager, Anjali, who was very reassuring and calm in dealing with the nervous parents who had very small babies on site. This was every parent’s worst nightmare, and...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: In my constituency lots of people want to take in children, but the sad truth is that the Government have said no more children are allowed in. Does the hon. Lady agree that perhaps the hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart) needs to have a word with the Government about the Dubs amendment before he starts talking about how people have changed in this country?

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: Is my hon. Friend aware of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission report from last year that showed that BME people with degrees are two and a half times less likely to have a job than their white counterparts, and are more likely to be paid less—an average of 21.3% less—than their white counterparts when they enter the employment world?

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend and neighbouring MP for bringing this important debate to the House. She mentions the diverse constituency that she is proud to represent here in Parliament. Our constituencies are close to each other and share areas such as Kilburn High Road, where there is a lot of racial profiling of black men. I am sure that she will come to this in her speech, but does she agree...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: My hon. Friend is being generous with her time. Does she agree that the Government should be doing more to take in refugees, that the abandonment of the Dubs amendment, under which we were meant to help unaccompanied children around the world to come to our country, should be condemned and that we should be doing more?

Maternity Discrimination — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (15 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my hon. Friend for her passionate speech and would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all the work that she, too, has done in this field. Last night when I put this debate on the Facebook page of the local mothers’ group of which I am a member, one of the women, Anat, wrote back about how statutory maternity pay is lost if someone changes jobs while pregnant. She works...

Maternity Discrimination — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (15 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: What does the hon. Lady think about access to justice? Will the Minister consider abolishing some of the up-front fees, which are so high that many women who are pregnant or have just had children are put off bringing forward discrimination cases?

Maternity Discrimination — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (15 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank the hon. Lady for giving way and I apologise for being late. Ironically, I was dropping my daughter off at nursery, which is why I came in a bit late. The hon. Lady is making a passionate speech. I want to raise a point about Parliament when I was pregnant last year. It may surprise some Members to know that there is no maternity leave here in Parliament. I raised the issue several...

Detention of Vulnerable Persons — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (14 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: The hon. Lady is making a passionate speech about a very important issue that is close to my heart. She will be aware of my constituent, Nazanin Ratcliffe, a mother who has been imprisoned in Iran for a year and is suicidal. In April, it will be one year since she has spoken to her husband, and she barely ever sees her two-year-old daughter, Gabriella. Will the hon. Lady ask the Minister to...

International Women’S Day (2 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. This week, the hon. Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg) was in my constituency. To his credit, he informed me that he was going to be in my constituency for a Conservative fundraiser. I offered to go with him, but he rejected my advances. Today I opened my local paper, the Camden New Journal, to read that he had described the “pygmy nature...

International Women’S Day (2 Mar 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: I wish to focus on Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British citizen, charity worker, mother, daughter, sister and wife, who has been imprisoned in Iran for almost a year now. Nazanin lives 10 minutes down the road from me in west Hampstead. Her life was not very different from mine until she went on holiday to visit her parents with her two-year-old daughter Gabriella, who is also a British...

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: It will not come as a surprise to the House that I shall speak against a state visit for Donald Trump. Last night, discussing the debate, I began to think about how I am his worst nightmare—the daughter of a political asylum seeker, raised in a Muslim household and, perhaps worst of all, a woman with strong opinions. Somehow I do not think I will be on his Christmas card list this year....

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Tulip Siddiq: As Members, we make difficult decisions every day. Some of them are of local significance and others take on national significance. The only reason we have the ability to make these decisions in the House is that our local constituents gave us their consent and voted for us at the general election. The point has been made to me that we are not delegates, but when all my neighbours, local...
