Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: I have been focusing on the recent trips to the Court of Appeal. I do not know whether there were trips to the Court of Appeal in the immediate aftermath of the convictions that started in 1996. Are we talking only about recent trips to the Court of Appeal or are we including trips that might have been a decade ago, before the nature of the scandal was known?

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, the heroes of this story are Alan Bates and the sub-postmasters. Having been wrongly convicted, and in order to establish their innocence, they brought a piece of incredibly expensive civil litigation. This was fought all the way by the Post Office. As Sir Wyn Williams will tell us, there are signs that it deliberately suppressed evidence even then. Alan Bates won in front of a...

End of Custody Supervised Licence Scheme: Extension - Commons Urgent Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: As somebody who has faced the dilemma that the current Lord Chancellor faces, I am not unsympathetic to the position of the Government. I understand they are doing it because the prisons are too full. Could the Minister explain what effect the fact that the prisons are too full is now having on the way the Government are dealing with the backlog in the Crown Court? There are 66,000 cases...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: I apologise for intervening, but I have not heard, either, from the Lord Chancellor as to what the parliamentary occasion would be. Can the noble Viscount, Lord Hailsham, help us? Has he heard what the parliamentary occasion would be?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, I apologise for interrupting. Can the Minister confirm that, before the Government are satisfied that Rwanda is a safe country, they will seek the views of the monitoring committee?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, in answer to the question from the noble Lord, Lord Kerr of Kinlochard, the Minister said that the Bill will not be brought into force until the Government are satisfied that Rwanda is safe. The noble Lord was referring to the network of agreements required to ensure refoulement. Can the Minister describe to the House and to the country the process the Government are going to use to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: I apologise for pressing this, but the Minister is saying that the Government are going to make a judgment. Can he tell us how they will make that judgment?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (20 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, I will update the House on a further development in relation to the amendment in the name of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope. We had the privilege in the Constitution Committee this morning to have the Lord Chancellor give evidence to us. We spoke of the Rwanda Bill and raised specifically with him the question that the effect of the Bill is to say that Rwanda “is” a safe...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 45 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Will the Minister identify what “internal procedures”—I am using the phrase from Article 24—are left for the UK to go through before the treaty is ratified?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 45 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Will the Minister undertake to write to those of us in the House who are interested in this before Third Reading?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 45 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: I am very interested in this amendment. It gets rid of the current commencement provision, Clause 9(1), that says: “This Act comes into force on the day on which the Rwanda Treaty enters into force”. Article 24 of the agreement says: “This Agreement shall enter into force on the date of receipt of the last notification by the Parties”— that is, the parties to the agreement—...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 45 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: I am very grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Murray of Blidworth, for telling me that. Perhaps the Minister could give us details of when the Government of the United Kingdom expect the Government of Rwanda to have done all that is required under Article 24. When do they expect the last notification from the Rwandan Government? Am I right in saying that all that is required for this agreement...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 44ZA ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Can the noble and learned Lord indicate what the Government’s position is if the judgment stands—that is, where the leave to appeal is not given or the appeal fails?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 44ZA ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Before the noble and learned Lord replies, can he also respond in relation to the Constitution Committee’s report as well? Will we get the Government’s response before the end of Report?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 44ZA ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, I echo what my noble friend Lady Lister and the noble Lord, Lord Anderson, have said, in supporting the approach that the noble Lord, Lord Dodds, has taken on behalf of Northern Ireland. I do not necessarily agree with the suggestion that he is making to solve the problem, but it is clear that what he is saying—and what I believe the people of Northern Ireland are entitled to—is...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 36 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Can we then take it from what the Minister has said that, if the Government, after taking appropriate legal advice that they choose to take, take the view that not to comply with a Rule 39 order would in the circumstances then prevailing put the Government in breach of international law, the Government would then comply with that order?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: I apologise for interrupting the Minister. Could he confirm to the House that the Minister, which I assume means the Secretary of State for Home Affairs, will not seek to bring the Bill—the Act—into force until he is satisfied that all the provisions of the treaty have been implemented and are being properly operated?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: Sorry for interrupting again, but that is not quite an answer to my question. Could the Minister give the House an assurance that the Home Secretary will bring the treaty into force only once he is satisfied that the treaty’s provisions have been implemented and it is operational?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 91 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: My Lords, I strongly support the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Chelmsford in moving the amendment. We have gone through, in some detail, the question of when this Bill is going to become law and whether it will become law before the changes are effected as a result of the new treaty. Noble Lords will remember that the Home Secretary is asking us to bear in mind the key part of his...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 91 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Falconer of Thoroton: If the agreement dies, will the future Act die with it?
