Scotland: Inflation and Cost of Living Increases (11 Ion 2023)

Anum Qaisar: What recent assessment he has made of the impact of increases in (a) inflation and (b) the cost of living on Scotland.

Scotland: Inflation and Cost of Living Increases (11 Ion 2023)

Anum Qaisar: Data from the UK Government shows that standing charges for Scottish households are above the UK average, yet Scotland is an energy-rich country in her own right, producing over 60% of the UK’s gas and a third of its green electricity. This broken Westminster system results in people in my constituency of Airdrie and Shotts and those across Scotland struggling with the cost of living, so...

Migration and Economic Development (19 Rha 2022)

Anum Qaisar: It is the super-rich and those on luxury yachts, not small boats, that people should be scared of. Asylum seekers are people just like us; they have hopes, dreams and aspirations. This policy could be legally sound but it is immoral and a waste of taxpayers’ money. This cruel Government should be ashamed of themselves. The Home Secretary said in her statement: “This judgment thoroughly...

Home Department: Immigration Policies: Impact on Scotland (19 Rha 2022)

Anum Qaisar: What assessment she has made with Cabinet colleagues of the potential impact of the Government’s immigration policies on the (a) population of and (b) availability of labour in Scotland.

Home Department: Immigration Policies: Impact on Scotland (19 Rha 2022)

Anum Qaisar: One of my constituents is a renewable energy researcher from Syria, and he is struggling with the Government’s restrictive policies on the employment of asylum seekers. He is unable to work or pursue further study in his field. Given that the shortage of labour impacts all sectors of the economy, does the Minister agree that the UK Government should make the rules on asylum seekers seeking...

Scottish Referendum Legislation: Supreme Court Decision (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: From the Scottish child payment to free prescriptions, to not really supporting the war in Iraq to free period products, Scotland has consistently chosen a different path from Westminster. I am reminded today of the words of the late Bashir Ahmad MSP, who said that “it isn’t important where you come from, what matters is where we are going together as a nation”. Many Scots like me...

Social Security Support for Children — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I thank the Minister for his response; he should expect letters from me following up some of the points that I made. As I stated in my opening remarks, I wish to be the voice of the voiceless, which is why I applied for this debate to discuss social security for children. I was pleased to hear Back-Bench contributions from SNP, Democratic Unionist party, Labour and independent MPs, and I...

Social Security Support for Children — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: When I met representatives from Pregnant Then Screwed this week, they told me of their concerns about the plight of women. We have women who want to work and are more than qualified to work, but the cost of childcare is holding them back. I mentioned this earlier, and I hope the Minister will answer this specific point: will the UK Government follow the suit of the Scottish Government and...

Social Security Support for Children — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: My hon. Friend is making an excellent contribution. On that specific point, I recently visited Manston and saw harrowing scenes of a tent full of families with young children. Those kids should have been playing in nursery; they should have been in a safe area. Instead, they were with dozens of other children in one tent. Does my hon. Friend agree that the wider issue at play is that the UK...

Social Security Support for Children — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I beg to move, That this House has considered social security support for children. This is the first Westminster Hall debate that I have successfully secured, and I am delighted to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I am also delighted to see my friend, the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), next to me; it would not be a Westminster Hall debate if he was not here. I am...

Social Security Support for Children — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: It is as if the hon. Member has seen my speech; I will come to that point later. Of course, it is not only the Trussell Trust; there are a number of independent and locally run food poverty groups. In my constituency, for example, we have Paul’s Parcels, which serves Shotts and the surrounding villages. We are living in food bank Britain, where almost 1 million children receive some sort of...

Social Security Support for Children — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (23 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: My hon. Friend’s point is incredibly valid. The Scottish Government hold limited economic levers, but they often have to use their budget to mitigate Tory austerity. In debating topics such as social security for children, it is essential to reaffirm that a societal approach must be considered when formulating policy. Social security for children is about so much more than targeted support....

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: It is not trade unions that have run public services to the ground—it is the Tories. It is not asylum seekers fleeing war and famine who are inflaming tensions—it is the Tories. It is not those in low-paid jobs who are trashing the economy—again, it is the Tories. Can the Deputy Prime Minister inform the House when the Tory Government will finally accept responsibility for their...

Bankers’ Bonuses ( 8 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The hon. Member is making an excellent speech. In my constituency of Airdrie and Shotts, 68% of people are cutting back on their essential groceries, and 65% are worried about not being able to pay their energy bills. Is it not simply the case that under the Tories the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, whether they be bankers or oil giants not paying windfall tax? Does the hon....

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade Agreements: India ( 7 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether her Department plans to take steps to help mitigate the emissions increases projected in the UK-India Free Trade Agreement Scoping Assessment, published January 2022.

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: I have to say that I was shocked by the previous speaker’s contribution. In 2014, I campaigned for an independent Scotland as a member of the Labour party. I joined the SNP after the referendum; my final straw was when Labour joined the Tories in September 2014 to vote for air strikes in Iraq. Independence is not about the SNP or Nicola Sturgeon; it is about self- determination for the...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy ( 2 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: The hon. Member made an interesting point about the SNP not wanting a Labour Government. I joined the SNP a week after the referendum. One reason that tipped me over was that I remember, back in 2014, Labour joining hand in hand with the Tories to vote for air strikes while SNP MPs voted against them. I urge caution, because the fact is that the Labour party does not stand up for the people...

Written Answers — Treasury: Cost of Living: Single People ( 1 Tach 2022)

Anum Qaisar: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps his Department is taking to address the impact of the cost of living on single households.
