Asylum Claims - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, India was recently designated a safe country, along with Georgia, Albania and other countries. How many claims have been processed for India and what was the reason for designating India as a safe country?

National Minimum Wage Legislation - Question (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to improve the enforcement of national minimum wage legislation.

National Minimum Wage Legislation - Question (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: I thank the Minister. The International Labour Organization recommends that there should be one inspector for every 10,000 workers to check that employees are being paid the minimum wage. The UK ratio is 0.4% for every 10,000 workers; that way, UK employers can expect an inspection every 500 years. That is not good enough. You only have to talk to overseas students and workers in minority...

Free Childcare Scheme - Question (20 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, one of the best things we had under Tony Blair was Sure Start; it was all over the country and children benefited. Why can we not introduce full Sure Start again, like we had 20-odd years ago, so that children up and down the country can benefit?

West Midlands Combined Authority (Transfer of Police and Crime Commissioner Functions) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, most of my points have been made, but I will make just one or two. First, when a PCC election happened in 2021, the PCC said clearly in his manifesto that there should be a free-standing PCC and that the PCC should not be taken over by the mayor. He supported that position, but his opponent said that he disagreed and that the role should be taken over by the mayor. He made it quite...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note (Continued) ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, I will make just two points. Like everyone else, I wish there were no wars in the world. I wish we could all live in peace and harmony, and that we did not have to watch night after night on our TV screens humanity tearing itself apart around the world. That is just wishful thinking, so let me return to the real world. At this moment, we have conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine....

Horizon Scandal: Psychological Support Services - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, I am sorry to hear the Minister say that there is no help available for mental health issues. These are the facts on the ground; I have spoken to quite a few Asian sub-postmasters, and they all said they have had some form of mental health issue—either them or their families. The reason they do not come out is because mental health has a stigma attached to it; this is why they are...

Post Office Horizon Scandal: Compensation Payments - Private Notice Question (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, what is the government advice to the postmasters who, due to their experience, have developed mental health problems, and received all kinds of electric shocks and so on, and are unable to work?

Post Office Horizon Scandal: Racism - Question (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Sahota: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the reports from sub-postmasters involved in the Post Office Horizon scandal that racism affected the way they were treated by the Post Office.

Post Office Horizon Scandal: Racism - Question (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. My heart goes out to all the sub-postmasters, whatever community they belong to, who were victims of this miscarriage of justice. I thank Balvinder Gill, who is in the Public Gallery and who has been through a horrendous experience, along with his mother. Just like Balvinder’s mother, many victims were hard-working, first-generation...

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, council tax banding for our 25 million homes in England is based on their estimated market value in 1991. So, a two-bedroom flat in London, where property values have gone through the roof, falls in the same band as its equivalent in the north of England; a £1 million home is charged 0.2% of its value; and on average, one worth £250,000 is charged 0.6%. This year, 46% of...

S4C - Question ( 8 Chw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, the Welsh language received a grant of some £250,000 from the Welsh Government. There are only half a million Welsh language speakers in the UK, so how come other languages such as Polish, Punjabi, Bengali and Gujarati never receive any grant at all, even though they have a much larger number of speakers?

Local Authority Finances - Question ( 6 Chw 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, I recently read an article in the Financial Times on the state of our local authorities. It states that, due to all the budget cuts over the last 14 years, to make ends meet they are resorting to “Asset stripping the public realm”. The symbols of our civic identities are being sold off, which is diminishing our towns and cities and undermining our civil cohesion. Does the...

Parliamentary Democracy and Standards in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (11 Ion 2024)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, our parliamentary democracy and our standards in public life are things that have always been admired and envied throughout the world by other parliamentarians and the public alike. They look to us for guidance and advice as the mother of all Parliaments. When they visit our Parliament, they are in awe of our system and institutions, but, sadly, in the past few years some of our...

HMRC: Tax Returns - Question (10 Ion 2024)

Lord Sahota: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the HMRC services to the public in processing tax returns.

HMRC: Tax Returns - Question (10 Ion 2024)

Lord Sahota: I thank the Minister for her Answer. My Question is about the running of the HMRC. As we all know, December and January are the busiest time of the year for people and their agents to return their tax files. As from 11 December up to 31 January, HMRC says that the self-assessment helpline will deal only with the most complex and priority cases. My first question is how the HMRC will know...

Levelling Up: Project Delivery - Question (23 Tach 2023)

Lord Sahota: My Lords, as the Minister knows, councils up and down the country spent millions of pounds preparing for their application to bid for the levelling-up funds. I am glad that the Government have changed the system now. Do the Government have any idea how many millions these cash-strapped councils have spent on preparing their applications—or maybe the Government did not ask that question...
