Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Clause 1 - Disapproval of foreign state conduct prohibited (12 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: I beg to move amendment 22, in clause 1, page 1, line 5, leave out “must not have regard to a territorial consideration” and insert “must not act”. This amendment would remove the reference to a “territorial consideration” in the legislation.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Clause 1 - Disapproval of foreign state conduct prohibited (12 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir George. Antisemitism is on the rise across the UK and the globe. It is a disgusting stain on society, and something must be done to eradicate it completely. There must be strong and meaningful legislation to tackle it so that Jewish people feel and are safe. That is something that I and my SNP colleagues want to see, but frankly it is...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Clause 1 - Disapproval of foreign state conduct prohibited (12 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Essentially, I want to talk about the impact that a local government can have when people at a localised level can outline how they feel about human rights records. This Government should take heed of that, because at that time it was Thatcher’s Government who imposed sanctions on apartheid South Africa and maintained close links with political leaders in apartheid South Africa. I have...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of witness ( 7 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Thank you for joining us today. Clause 4 has been referred to as a gagging clause by some. Why can it be seen as so problematic?Q

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 7 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q Thank you for joining us today. What impact will the Bill have on the UK’s relationship with those in the occupied territories, and with Palestinians across all four nations here who wish to exercise freedom of expression so that the actions of the Israeli Government can be held to account?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 7 Med 2023)

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions ( 7 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Yesterday marked a year since the Prime Minister’s predecessor took office, and as you may remember, Madam Deputy Speaker, a lettuce ended up outlasting her. Due to Tory economic mismanagement, that same lettuce would now cost around 20% more. The cost of food might not be an issue for the Prime Minister, who is the richest MP in the House of Commons, but it is a concern for my...

Local Bank Branch Closures ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, and is being extremely generous with her time. The closure of local bank branches has an impact on Members in all parts of the House, as we have heard this evening and as I said when I spoke about the subject in my first Adjournment debate last year. On that day, HSBC had announced that it was closing 69 branches across the four nations. Since...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q Thank you for joining us. Mark, I have to be honest, I am a member of Unite, not Unison—do not hold that against me. Scotland has a proud history of promoting social justice, human rights and respect for international law on the world stage. In 1981, Glasgow City Council decided to award Nelson Mandela freedom of the city. It was the first city in the world to do so. In 1986, St...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q A final question from me: unions have historically been at the forefront of political causes, so will the Bill impact the ability of members of trade unions to take a stand on issues such as human rights abuses? Mark, would you like to start?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q Thank you. Roz, do you have anything to add to that?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witness ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q Thank you so much for joining us today, Andrew. You have spoken about the historical influence of Britain, so I am interested to learn a little bit about what impact you think the Bill will have on the UK’s relationship with the occupied territories, and with Palestinians across all four nations here who wish to exercise their freedom of expression so that the Israeli Government can be...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witness ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q The UK Government have a long-standing position on illegal settlements. Would the Bill stop a public body from taking a stance of not buying and trading goods from illegal settlements, bearing in mind these settlements are of course illegal under international law?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witness ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: That is fine; I will also speak more slowly, just in case it is my accent. I was asking if you could clarify how the Bill will impact the UK’s long-standing position on illegal settlements. Would the Bill stop a public body from taking a stance of not buying and trading goods from illegal settlements within the OPT, bearing in mind the settlements are legal under international law?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witness ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q Finally, what impact will the Bill have on your organisation’s work out in Israel and the occupied territories?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 5 Med 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Q Thank you to the panel for joining us today. I want to stick to clause 4, because I was really interested in the discussions on it. Some stakeholders have called it a gagging clause. I am really interested to learn what other options the Government could bring forward to achieve the clause’s aims. It is my understanding that if a Scottish Government Minister, for example, wanted to...
