Asylum Seekers: Missing from Registered Address - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: To ask His Majesty’s Government how many asylum seekers whose applications are pending are currently missing from their registered address.

Asylum Seekers: Missing from Registered Address - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, the Irish Justice Minister claims that 80% of asylum seekers arriving recently in Ireland have crossed the Northern Irish border through the common travel area. What steps are the Government taking to monitor these movements from GB to Northern Ireland and then from Northern Ireland to Ireland? Is there an agreement between the Governments, as the Irish claim, for them to be...

Human Rights: Sportswashing - Motion to Take Note (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, what a privilege it is to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Grey-Thomson, and I pay tribute to her for everything she has done to open up the world of sport to disabled people. It is an inspiring story, and it is a privilege for us to sit in this House with her. Max Freudmann was an Austrian Jew who ran in the sprints in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin—it is not so long ago; I was in...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Clarke, since he sets the foundations of what I am about to say. I agreed with everything that he said except his conclusion. This Bill does two things. It creates a legal fiction that Rwanda is a safe country for asylum seekers and it purports to exclude the courts of this country from examining that fiction. Let us first...

Universal Declaration of Human Rights - Question for Short Debate (11 Rha 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, it is a great privilege to follow the passion of the noble and right reverend Lord, and to congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Anelay, on securing this debate. It is a particular pleasure to recall that we were appointed to this place by Sir John Major some 27 years ago, and we are still fighting our corner. On the day when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed in...

Autumn Statement 2023 - Motion to Take Note (29 Tach 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I also welcome the noble Baroness to the Treasury Bench. I think she will find it interesting to be shaping the state in the future. The noble Lord, Lord Clarke of Nottingham, in his evidence to the Constitution Committee in June of last year, said that “there are no votes in criminal justice”. He continued: “The criminal justice system is in the most appalling state. I would...

King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) ( 8 Tach 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I must express my sorrow at the loss of Igor Judge. We became friends 50 years ago, when I was trespassing from the Welsh circuit on to the Midlands circuit, in Shrewsbury and Birmingham. We had many a tussle at that time—and I hope to be able to say more about how I feel about Igor. In his Statement to the House of Commons on 27 October, the Lord Chancellor, Alex Chalk, made...

State Pensions: Canada Free Trade Agreement - Question (18 Hyd 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: To ask His Majesty’s Government whether they intend to take steps to index United Kingdom state pensions to inflation for those entitled to them living in Canada, as requested by the government of that country in order to facilitate the proposed new free trade agreement.

State Pensions: Canada Free Trade Agreement - Question (18 Hyd 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, the Canadian Government say that, over the past 30 years, they have made repeated efforts to persuade the UK Government to do what they do for their own citizens: to index the UK pensions of UK retirees who are resident in Canada. On what principle do the Government distinguish between our pensioners in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and certain Caribbean Commonwealth countries and...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 94 (27 Meh 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I remind your Lordships that, at Second Reading of this Bill, on 8 February, I referred to a legal action brought by Yevgeny Prigozhin, founder of the Wagner Group, who has been somewhat in the news over the last weekend, against the journalist Eliot Higgins, who had investigated his activities. When his case was justly struck out last May, Prigozhin said that he brought court...

Sentencing Act 2020 (Magistrates’ Court Sentencing Powers) (Amendment) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret (16 Mai 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I am sorry to hear that the magistrates were upset by the introduction of this change. I was articled as a solicitor in the office of the clerk to the magistrates of the Ruabon Bench in north-east Wales. The chairman of the Bench was Lord Maelor, formerly TW Jones, the Labour MP for Merioneth. He had gone down the pit at the age of 14 for 12 shillings a week and later served time in...

Nuptial Agreements - Question (25 Ebr 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: The Minister refers to a small cohort. Has he any idea how many nuptial agreements exist as a percentage of those people who get married these days?

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill - Second Reading (21 Ebr 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: Your Lordships will soon gather from my croaky voice that I returned from a northerly cruise on Wednesday with something of a cold. It was 10 days without responsibility. No money was used on board; at mealtimes, all I had to do was sway my way into the restaurant, and the food was there ready cooked. There was no lock on my cabin door—but, with the North Sea all around me, I was going...

Windsor Framework (Democratic Scrutiny) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: The noble Lord, Lord Robathan, referred to his experience in the forces in Northern Ireland. It reminded me that when I was defending in the Brighton bomb trial in 1986, I was surprised to discover that Daniel O’Connell, the leader in the 19th century of the fight for Catholic emancipation and the scrapping of the Act of Union 1800, was, despite his nickname of “The Liberator”,...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Chw 2023)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Morgan of Cotes, who has demonstrated her expertise in this field as chair of the Fraud Act committee. Last year’s economic crime Act was designed, as this Bill is, to reveal the ill-gotten gains—the “stolen wealth”, as my noble friend Lord Fox called it—of those subject to sanctions or otherwise engaged in criminal...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Hyd 2022)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: Can the Minister define in a few words what the necessity is in this particular instance?

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Hyd 2022)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I, too, am a member of the Sub-Committee on the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland, under the excellent chairmanship of the noble Lord, Lord Jay. The noble Lord, Lord Frost, has just demonstrated to us that he would not get an O-level in the constitutional law and practice of the United Kingdom. He told us that this unconstitutional Bill was drafted to strengthen the UK’s...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) ( 9 Med 2022)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, the existence of Princess Elizabeth was borne in on me in 1947 at the time of the royal wedding. It was a blaze of sudden colour—and I still have the souvenir illustrated magazine that my mother kept—in a post-war world of austerity and ration books. “But where did she get the coupons for that dress?”, the grumpy ones said. After the shock of the death of her father, it was...
