Quantitative Easing: Financial Services: EU Markets (15 Sep 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: My hon. Friend is outlining a lot of concerns that have been raised by my constituents in Hampstead and Kilburn. The Office for National Statistics found that 1,000 of my constituents are employed in financial and insurance services. During this divorce, as he puts it, their daily commute is riddled with uncertainty, because of the possibility of relocation or, much worse, redundancy. Does he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Global Tax Evasion (19 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: What steps his Department has taken to tackle global tax evasion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Global Tax Evasion (19 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The Panama papers revealed what most of us had long suspected—that the super-rich enjoy manipulating the tax system—but I was astonished to learn in a written response from the former Chancellor that the £10 million multi-agency taskforce set up to investigate those revelations still does not have the Panama papers in its possession. Will the Minister clarify what the £10 million has...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: As a proud Londoner, I believe that we must have greater control over taxes and public services, especially in the light of Brexit. I know that my friend Sadiq Khan has ambitious plans for London. Will the Chancellor commit to an initial devolution deal for London in his first autumn statement?

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (12 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I thank my right hon. Friend for securing the debate. Even though the hospital is not in my constituency, much of what she describes happens in hospitals in my constituency and just outside it. At Central Middlesex hospital, which is just outside my constituency but serves many of my constituents, healthcare provision has also been affected by cuts. A recent inspection by the CQC similar to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (12 Jul 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Thank you, Mr Speaker. My constituent Nazanin has been detained in Iran for 100 days now, with no access to lawyers and minimal contact with her three-year-old daughter. Will the Minister join me in formally denouncing the actions of the Iranian authorities and make sure that Nazanin and Gabriella are returned to their home in West Hampstead as soon as possible?

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — NHS in London (24 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: rose—

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — NHS in London (24 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. I apologise, because I have to run off in half an hour for an appointment at the Royal Free hospital’s maternity unit. The birth rate is the highest since the 1970s, yet maternity wards in London have been closing left, right and centre. Elizabeth Duff from the National Childbirth Trust has pointed out how disruptive that is to...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — NHS in London (24 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: As my hon. Friend is aware, junior doctors are poised to withdraw emergency cover for 48 hours in April. Does she agree that the Health Secretary’s comments, such as those about the British Medical Association being “brilliantly clever at winding everyone up on social media”, show his total disregard for medical professionals who are quite capable of knowing a bad deal when they see it?

High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill: New Clause 6 — Chilterns AONB Review Group (23 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: New clauses 34 and 35, which I tabled, relate to construction at Canterbury Works and Alexandra Place in my constituency. I shall say something about the environmental impacts, but before that I want to make a point about the poor communication on the part of HS2, which has also been mentioned by Conservative Members. Last October, along with volunteers, I delivered letters to constituents...

International Women’S Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I commend the Government for setting up the National FGM Centre, which helps women and communities to fight against this barbaric act. It is run, as hon. Members may know, by Barnardo’s and the Local Government Association, and a funding decision on the centre is due at the end of this month. Will my right hon. Friend join me in calling on the Government to continue this funding that keeps...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools Admissions Appeals Process (7 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: What assessment she has made of the effectiveness of the schools admissions appeals process.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools Admissions Appeals Process (7 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The Secretary of State recently stated her ambition for the Government potentially to ban civil society organisations from raising concerns about the admissions processes of schools. Those organisations perform an important public duty. Constituents have been in touch with me to say that they find the admissions process too complex and too lengthy to deal with by themselves. Does the Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (7 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Last week I attended an event organised by Positively UK and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in my constituency to celebrate the lives of women living with HIV. Does the Minister agree that not enough is being done to educate children in schools about HIV and the support available to women living with it?

Business of the House (3 Mar 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Hannah Morris, the fantastic Camden youth mayor, is stepping down later this year. When I have spoken to young constituents, the point has been made to me over and over that young people feel disfranchised from politics and disengaged from Parliament. That has been exacerbated by the Government’s refusal to lower the voting age and their scrapping of policies such as education maintenance...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: For two years, my constituents and I campaigned against the development of a luxury skyscraper. The local councillors listened and rejected the plans, but then the Conservative Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government called in the decision and overturned the wishes of the community, showing utter disrespect for local democracy. The Prime Minister preaches localism, but will he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Family Visas (22 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: The financial threshold for family visas is causing particular distress to one of my constituents, who cannot work the hours required because she is a carer for her vulnerable child. This means my constituent is living without her husband and the child is living without his father. Does the Minister acknowledge that he is at risk of creating a generation of children whose only contact with...

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I agree with many of the hon. Lady’s points. My constituent, Alix Wilton Regan, has just come back from volunteering in Calais, and she said that the majority of people she met there were midwives, nurses, doctors and so on. Those are skills that we could use in our country; there is a shortage of such professionals in the UK at the moment. Does the hon. Lady agree that it would be mutually...

Refugees: UK Government Policy (10 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: I am proud to say that two local authorities in my constituency, Camden and Brent, have pledged to take in 50 families between them, despite staggering cuts in their local government budget and the fact that these families will cost between £29,000 and £40,000 per family per year. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the Government should work with these local authorities to help them to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Private Rented Sector (8 Feb 2016)

Tulip Siddiq: Many of the 33% of my constituents who rent privately have been the victim of revenge evictions. Shelter has estimated that in a calendar year 4,000 people in my constituency were victims of revenge evictions and 200,000 people across the country suffered from rogue landlords. The Minister has been speaking about how much work the Government have been doing, but will he clarify what impact...
