Shailesh Vara speaks in Parliament to pay tribute to Her Late Majesty The Queen.
Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions, Shailesh Vara calls on the new PM to confirm to the EU that the UK’s preferred option in respect of the Northern Ireland protocol is a negotiated settlement, but that if such a settlement is not forthcoming, we will proceed with the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill.
Speaking in Prime Minister’s Questions, Shailesh Vara highlights the success of the settlement of Asians from Uganda 50 years ago this year and urges the PM to learn those positive lessons so that the Homes for Ukraine scheme has maximum success.
Following the announcement on the response to help those fleeing the conflict in Ukraine, Shailesh Vara urges the Government to ensure that Ukrainian refugees who need urgent healthcare can get it on the NHS, even though they might not have an NHS number.
Following the Prime Minister’s statement on the Sue Gray Report, Shailesh Vara tells the PM that, without minimising the importance of the events in Downing Street during lockdown, local military families are also concerned about the potential role the UK military could end up playing in the conflict on the Russia-Ukraine border.
