Institute for Statecraft: Integrity Initiative (12 Dec 2018)

Ian Austin: The Government should be doing much more to counter Russian disinformation in Britain and in the west. In particular, may I ask the Minister to comment on the activities of RT, which cannot be regarded as a serious news organisation? It is a wholly owned Kremlin propaganda channel, which has engaged in dishonest campaigns to undermine our democracy. Does he agree that it is a channel that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (4 Dec 2018)

Ian Austin: I am sure I speak for all members of the Foreign Affairs Committee when I say how much we are looking forward to scrutinising the work of our new embassy in the Maldives. What assessment have the Government made of the human rights of Palestinians living under the brutal dictatorship of Hamas, which routinely imprisons people without trial, tortures them, executes people and is reported today...

Interpol Presidency Election (20 Nov 2018)

Ian Austin: It is clearly absurd to put into this position the representative of what has become, under Putin, a criminal enterprise that has looted Russia, impoverished its people, and locks up and murders its opponents at home and abroad. What assurances can the Minister give us about what would happen to the sharing of information, access to databases and all the other arrangements that exist between...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: School Funding (6 Nov 2018)

Ian Austin: It is not just schools in Dudley that have been inadequately funded. The area overall will have lost over £100 million by next year. Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council’s spending power has been cut by 20%, while Surrey, which the Chancellor represents, has actually had an increase. Why is he treating Dudley so unfairly?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: School Funding (6 Nov 2018)

Ian Austin: Which I am interested in.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: New Homes for Social Rent (5 Nov 2018)

Ian Austin: What assessment he has made of trends in the level of new homes provided for social rent since 2010.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: New Homes for Social Rent (5 Nov 2018)

Ian Austin: There are thousands of households languishing on Dudley’s waiting lists. I meet families every single week who are desperate for a home of their own. Funding for new affordable homes has fallen from over £4 billion in 2009-10 to less than £500 million last year, and the amount of social housing built for rent is actually falling to its lowest level since the war. In that context, what...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (5 Nov 2018)

Ian Austin: Does the Secretary of State agree that the establishment of the new all-party group on the national holocaust memorial, which is chaired by the hon. Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) and me, is very much to be welcomed? Is it not fantastic that so many Members from both sides of the House came together, at a time when antisemitism is on the increase, to establish this group and that we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israeli-Palestinian Peace Plan (30 Oct 2018)

Ian Austin: Is not it incredible that earlier we had a discussion about the terrible situation in Gaza in which the word “Hamas” was not mentioned once? Is not it the case that the only way in which that terrible situation will be alleviated and improved is through progress being made on a peace process, and that the only way that that is going to happen is when Hamas lays down its weapons, stops...

Health and Social Care: Artificial Intelligence (24 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: rose—

Health and Social Care: Artificial Intelligence (24 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is not just artificial intelligence. The development of other life sciences and new technologies can have a massive effect on improving people’s healthcare, such as the development of treatments like Orkambi for people with cystic fibrosis. Will the Secretary of State make it an important priority to cut through the impasse between NHS England and the manufacturer,...

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: Will my hon. Friend give way now, before he continues?

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: I am very grateful. This is a really frustrating process, and the Government have to find a way of bringing it to a conclusion. I agree that NHS England and Vertex have to get back into negotiations, which should not stop until this is resolved. Does my hon. Friend agree that it might be an idea for the Secretary of State to get Sir Simon Stevens and Jeff Leiden, the chief executive of...

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: The right hon. Gentleman could lock the door, but first he has to get them in there so that negotiations resume and are not concluded until they resolve this issue, because it really does have to be sorted out. On that point, does my hon. Friend agree that it was worrying to read the word “final” in NHS England’s response to Vertex yesterday? It cannot be final. I really hope the...

Delegated Legislation: Exiting the European Union (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. There are people around the country whose children have got cystic fibrosis and who are watching this on TV now, and I think we should get on with the Adjournment debate instead of talking about our holiday arrangements.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: We find extremists and people who foster hatred in all communities on all sides of all conflicts. What worries me about this is that some of the material is in books that are officially sanctioned by the Palestinian Authority. Is the answer not to use more of Britain’s aid budget to promote projects that bring young people together, such as the Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow project...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment: Oxfordshire (3 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: It is a question about Oxfordshire.
