Israel and Hamas: Humanitarian Pause (27 Nov 2023)

Diane Abbott: The massacre by Hamas on 7 October is completely indefensible, but the Minister will be aware that since then no fewer than 5,500 Gaza children have died and there are hundreds more missing, probably under rubble. The Secretary-General of the UN said Gaza is “a graveyard for children” and most recently the executive director of UNICEF has said that pauses are not enough and only a...

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Diane Abbott: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (14 Nov 2023)

Diane Abbott: The Minister will be aware that President Macron, the United Nations and all the adjoining Arab countries are calling for a ceasefire. They are calling for a ceasefire because short humanitarian pauses will not end the slaughter. Does he accept that what the British people and supporters of parties on all sides of the House want to see is policies that will end the killing, end the slaughter...

Israel and Gaza (23 Oct 2023)

Diane Abbott: The Prime Minister said earlier that aid is flowing into Gaza. May I draw his attention to the fact that every single non-governmental organisation is saying that the aid is only of a token amount? What is he doing to ensure that aid goes to Gaza in the quantities that are needed?

Gaza: Al-Ahli Arab Hospital Explosion (18 Oct 2023)

Diane Abbott: The Foreign Secretary will be aware of the horror with which the missile strike on a hospital in Gaza, which caused hundreds upon hundreds of casualties, is regarded not just here in Britain, but in the region and internationally. The House has heard his injunction not to jump to conclusions, but would he support a genuinely independent inquiry into what is happening?

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Jun 2023)

Diane Abbott: Is the hon. Lady aware that, in 2019, Max Hastings, the editor of The Daily Telegraph and a Tory, said about Boris Johnson: “Johnson would not recognise truth, whether about his private or political life, if confronted by it in an identity parade”? Is not the truth that Boris has lied for so long and so often that it can come as no surprise that he is lying in this instance?

Stop and Search (19 Jun 2023)

Diane Abbott: The Home Secretary spoke about black mothers. I am a black mother, and I know very many black mothers: they are my friends, my relatives and my constituents. I have represented an inner-city constituency for nearly 40 years. Will the Home Secretary explain to the House how her statement meets the long-standing concerns of black mothers not just about the tragedy of a life lost, but about the...

Illegal Migration Bill ( 7 Mar 2023)

Diane Abbott: As a child of migrants, can I tell the Home Secretary how much I deplore her seeking to smear migrants as a whole as criminals and rapists? Can I also assure the House that I will never vote for legislation that would have led to my parents being detained and dumped in Rwanda? The Home Secretary talks about detention and deportation. Where is she going to detain these people? There is not the...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Unsafe Cladding ( 9 Jan 2023)

Diane Abbott: The Minister understands what a terrible problem this unsafe cladding is. A development in my constituency, Dalston Square, has unsafe cladding and the builders, Barratt, have accepted responsibility and put up scaffolding to deal with it. That scaffolding has been up for two years and nothing has happened because of a dispute between the builders and the contractors. Is there no way in which...

Manston Update (28 Nov 2022)

Diane Abbott: I am grateful to the Minister for coming before the House with his statement, but does he not agree that it should not have taken a death to make Ministers focus properly on issues relating to infectious diseases at Manston? It is not as if the possibilities relating to infectious disease have not been raised and written about. Does he not agree that it is quite wrong that it took a death...

Manston Update (28 Nov 2022)

Diane Abbott: Not stately homes!

Social Housing Standards (16 Nov 2022)

Diane Abbott: The Secretary of State will be aware that the family first raised the issue a year before their little boy died. That, in my view, points to the extreme culpability of the Rochdale Boroughwide housing association. It is my view not that its head should be fined but that, if he had any conscience, he would resign. Tens of thousands of people up and down the country are in properties that are...

Home Department: Illegal Cross-channel Movements: Discussions with French Counterpart (14 Nov 2022)

Diane Abbott: The Home Secretary insists that the agreement announced today represents a step forward, but is she able to tell the House whether it will mean fewer small boats crossing the channel?

When he came to give evidence to the Home Affairs Committee, he told us that he thought there was a risk of fire, disorder and infection....
