Valedictory Debate (24 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I rise to speak for the last time in this place. I am the 505th woman to take her seat in Parliament, but the first to represent the Cities of London and Westminster. The seat was established in 1298, so it took us a while, but we got there eventually. I am proud that I was given the freedom of the City last year. Following on from what so many colleagues have said, it has been such a...

Valedictory Debate (24 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Valedictory Debate (24 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: Only if you need it.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Social Media: Suicide (23 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate her Department has made of the number of deaths linked to suicide forums since 2019.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: The Minister makes an important point about how important it is to be able to have a moment of reflection. As I said, when I visited the Holocaust galleries at the Imperial War Museum, I personally came out of the museum feeling that I needed somewhere to sit and reflect. Surely that is one reason why, as I and others have advocated, the Imperial War Museum is the right place for this memorial.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I thank the Minister for that clarification. I absolutely welcome that. That is a very powerful message to send to any future Government or future Minister who may be sitting in his place. He makes a very good point about any future planning applications, too.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I thank the Minister once again for that very clear steer and clarification.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I thank my hon. Friend, the Father of the House, for his intervention. He makes a very clear point. Perhaps that could be taken through in the Lords.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. He may recall that the planning authority chose to not grant this application when it was first introduced, but was then steamrollered by the Government via the Planning Inspectorate, so I do not think my constituents would be very happy with his comments. Amendment 3 is designed to ensure that any development of the holocaust memorial and learning...

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I completely agree. Many of my constituents feel that this is being steamrollered and imposed on them without any consultation. They have campaigned so hard over the last eight years, and I pay tribute to them. I note with interest that the construction of the Buxton Memorial Fountain cost a little over £70,000 in today’s money, and I have no idea why the cost of the current proposal runs...

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Having read the Select Committee’s report, it is clear to me that there is a genuine concern about the Bill setting a precedent, which I will talk about slightly later. The London County Council (Improvements) Act 1900 is clear about protecting public spaces. In a constituency such as mine in central London, we do not benefit from huge amounts of...

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I have seen that. It goes back to the point that for many of us in this Chamber this is a workplace. I am obviously an exception, because this is my constituency, but for most Members of Parliament this is our workspace and then they go home. But this is my home, and I know from local residents—my neighbours —that Victoria Tower Gardens is a much-loved and much-used park. It is not just a...

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I did not realise the family connection with the hon. Gentleman’s constituency. The Buxton memorial is unique and should be protected. We would not want any other memorial encroaching upon it. It is also important to remember that half the entire park itself was a gift to the nation from the newspaper retailer William Henry Smith—the founder of WHSmith —who donated £1,000 to preserve...

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is a serious issue regarding the security of Victoria Tower Gardens if the memorial and education centre are built? We have already seen the current Holocaust memorial that is based in Hyde Park covered up by the authorities to protect it during a recent pro-Palestine march that went through Hyde Park.

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: First, I thank the Holocaust Memorial Bill Select Committee for its very hard work. That Committee was excellently chaired by my hon. Friend the Member for Carlisle (John Stevenson), and its report makes for interesting reading. It was clear that that cross-party and impartial Committee shares many of the concerns that I and many of my constituents hold. I would go as far as to say that the...

Holocaust Memorial Bill: Clause 1 - Expenditure relating to a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre (22 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I thank the Father of the House for giving way. He is making an important point about how Victoria Tower Gardens is a local park. Does he agree that there are thousands of social housing tenants, living 10 or 15 minutes’ walk away, who benefit from having the green space that Victoria Tower Gardens offers and would be concerned if it were overtaken by a memorial and an education centre?

Hajj Fraud (17 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: I am proud to represent nearly 15,000 Muslims as their MP in Parliament. The all-party parliamentary group on British Muslims recently informed me that my constituency has the 70th largest Muslim population in the country, and I know from my time as a Westminster city councillor, and now as an MP, of the key role that British Muslims play in making the two cities such a proudly multicultural...

Hajj Fraud (17 Mai 2024)

Nickie Aiken: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Before I went on my visit with the City of London police, which takes the lead on this, and met Commander Khan, I was not aware of it either. It is important that we highlight these hidden crimes. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate my hon. Friend on securing his third private Member’s Bill of his political career so far. I want to...
