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.
Shailesh Vara speaks in Parliament’s Holocaust Memorial Day debate to welcome the opportunities that exist for schoolchildren to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau and calls on the Government to encourage these visits to ensure that more people understand the reality of what happened.
Shailesh Vara calls on the Parliament to focus on matters that really affect our constituents on a day-to-day basis—cost of living, energy prices and so on—as well as on the fact that 100,000 Russian troops are on the Ukrainian border, which threatens global instability?
