UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Louise Ellman: I agree with the hon. Lady. Trade is beneficial, and it is beneficial to both countries; indeed, it should be international as well. I look forward to the day when the state of Israel and the state of Palestine establish good trading relationships with each other and with the UK, in accordance with the late Shimon Peres’s vision of a new middle east.

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: I welcome today’s debate. Finally, after decades of dithering, this House is being asked to trigger the process that could approve a third runway for Heathrow, the UK’s only hub airport. The debate on the expansion of aviation capacity in the south-east has always focused on balancing the importance of international connectivity with its impact on key local and international environmental...

Tuberculosis (7 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Arundel and South Downs (Nick Herbert) on securing this very important debate and on his very powerful speech. Tuberculosis remains the world’s deadliest infectious disease. It was responsible for the deaths of 1.7 million people in 2017. TB was declared a global emergency in 1993, and the sustainable development goals envisioned ending it by 2030....

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel). He has raised a very important issue at a very apt time, and I agree with what he has said. This is a time of great concern, because there is an increase in both holocaust denial and anti-Semitism right across Europe. Given that background, it is extremely concerning that legislation has been passed in a European...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s concern and that of others about a description of Nazi extermination camps as “Polish death camps”—an erroneous description—but the answer to that is not to try to shut down discussion about the holocaust and its depravities. The relationship between Jewish Poles and the wider Polish community is indeed very complex. At Yad Vashem, which I visited...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: I have listened to my hon. Friend’s comments with interest, but what he says is not borne out in what is happening. Indeed, since the legislation was introduced, the Polish Education Minister has denied the massacre of Jedwabne, and there have been efforts to strip the Polish-American historian, Jan Tomasz Gross, of his order of merit and even to prosecute him for his comments about Polish...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: I accept some of what my hon. Friend is saying. Does he agree that, while it certainly untrue that the Nazi extermination camps were in any way Polish death camps, there are still graphic examples of Polish complicity in the atrocities that took place against Jewish people in Poland at that time?

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Louise Ellman: Many of my constituents are furious that they cannot get to work owing to driver shortages and mass cancellations in the timetable in what is supposed to be a situation of planned improvements. How much worse does it have to get before the Secretary of State will consider removing the franchise?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Louise Ellman: The circumstances around the recent collapse of Carillion have left Liverpool with an unfinished hospital. Negotiations with a potential new contractor are under way but may require ministerial involvement because of the involvement of other Government Departments. Will the Secretary of State give me an absolute assurance that he will do whatever he can within his power to ensure that that...

Fire Safety Cladding: Heysmoor Heights (16 May 2018)

Louise Ellman: Does the Minister agree that it is outrageous that the residents are being asked to pay this bill but the private leaseholders do not know the freeholder’s identity? When the Housing Minister speaks to the freeholder’s agent, will he ask the freeholder to foot the bill?

Fire Safety Cladding: Heysmoor Heights (16 May 2018)

Louise Ellman: The Minister is giving some very important information, but he is not addressing the central issue of this debate. What will happen about the £18,000 bills that the private leaseholders at Heysmoor Heights are facing? What will the Government do about that?

Fire Safety Cladding: Heysmoor Heights (16 May 2018)

Louise Ellman: Today, following the campaigning of MPs across the country, the Prime Minister made a commitment to fund replacement cladding for some of the properties at risk following the Grenfell Tower catastrophe in June 2017. Her welcome statement refers to properties owned by councils and housing associations, but it leaves residents in privately owned tower blocks, such as those in Heysmoor Heights,...
