Canlyniadau 1–20 o 718 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Hope of Craighead

Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments (2019 Hague Convention etc.) Regulations 2024 - Motion to Approve (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I too very much welcome this measure for various reasons, which are set out very well in the Explanatory Memorandum. Some of the features which are set out in it are the care that has been taken to consult at various stages, the response to the consultation, and working together across the various jurisdictions within the United Kingdom to achieve harmony in the way we respond to...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 120A (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: I would like to say a few words about Amendment 141 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, to which I have put my name, and also, briefly, about Amendment 145 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Moylan, to which, again, I have put my name. Before making those remarks, I join both noble Lords in paying tribute to the noble and learned Lord the Minister for all the work that he has been...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 102 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, Clause 28 does not apply to Scotland, which can have its own legislation to deal with this matter, but I am very much in favour of the amendment. I have gone over the ground of seeking consent many times in different situations, but in this one, where we are dealing with the choice of advocates, the choice matters very much indeed. I would have thought that there is great sense in...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I do not wish to say any more; I simply wish to test the opinion of the House on my Motion B1. Ayes 245, Noes 208.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment B1, as an amendment to Motion B. I have asked for a further amendment in lieu to be put down, because I have raised important issues which need to be resolved before the Bill finally passes. As has been mentioned by the Minister, the Act will come into force on the day on which the Rwanda treaty enters into force. This means that your Lordships are being...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken. Picking up immediately on the point the noble Lord, Lord Sharpe of Epsom, has just made, he said that if matters change the Government would not be obligated by the treaty to remove people to Rwanda. The problem for the Minister is that Clause 2 states: “Every decision-maker must conclusively treat the Republic of Rwanda as a safe...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, perhaps I might respond to the noble Viscount. The provision in proposed subsection (8) simply states that, if the Secretary of State makes such a statement to Parliament, Rwanda will not be safe for the purposes of the Bill. I think that is as far as one can go, but if there is anything wrong with it, it is up to the Government to sort it out.

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I asked for this amendment in lieu to be put down because I believe that Lords Amendment 3C—to which I propose Amendment 3E in lieu—raised important issues to which further thought still needs to be given by the other place. If I do not receive a satisfactory reply, it is my intention to test the opinion of the House on this amendment. My amendment as now phrased seeks to add...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion B2 (as an amendment to Motion B) (20 Maw 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I wish to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 276, Noes 226.

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I am very grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken in this debate, particularly the Minister, for the careful way in which he replied. There is only one thing I should say, and it is in response to the noble Lord, Lord Lilley: he is absolutely right that there was a list of safe countries in that legislation, and it certainly did not occur to me to question the proposition in...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: I am extremely grateful to the noble Lord for his point. I imagine that the monitoring committee was put there at the request of His Majesty’s Government because something needed to be done to keep an eye on what was going on in Rwanda. It is made up of people who are independently appointed, with no allegiance to either Government, so one can trust them as looking at the matter...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, with the leave of the House, I shall speak also to my Motion B2 and to Amendment 3C in lieu. I asked for these amendments in lieu to be put down because I believe that Lords Amendments 2 and 3, to which I propose Amendments 3B and 3C in lieu, raise important issues to which further thought needs to be given by the other place. I should make it plain that it is my intention, if I do...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 155 (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: Before the noble and learned Lord sits down, will he comment on the point I was making about the aim of having these reviews written into the statute? Subsection (2) in the new clause set out in Amendment 162 says that they are taking place “with a view to ensuring that all possible steps are taken to enable their safe release at the earliest possible time”. That flags up, at the outset,...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 155 (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I would like to add a few words to what has already been said about Amendments 162 and 163 devised by the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett. The really important part of Amendment 162 is in proposed new subsection (2), which would set out in statute the aim of the convenor of these planning meetings. It states that they are taking place “with a view to ensuring that all possible steps are...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 154 (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 159 and 160 in this group, which the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, has asked me to introduce on his behalf, and in support of Amendment 161, which was spoken to so ably by the noble Lord, Lord Moylan, a moment ago. I join others in expressing great regret that the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, cannot be here to speak to his own amendments. It was very good of...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I am very grateful to noble Lords from all sides of the House, whatever their views may have been, for contributing to this debate. The result has been a much more interesting discussion than I anticipated in my rather brief and somewhat lame introduction to my amendment. I shall make only one point. My amendment is concerned with the position of our own courts. As Clause 5(3)...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: That is a perfectly fair point to make; there are other amendments we have passed that carry us a long way indeed, whereas this one is rather more particular. For various reasons, without elaborating further, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 36 withdrawn. Amendments 37 and 38 not moved. Amendment 39 not moved.

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, there are three amendments in this group, and they are all directed to the provisions of Clause 5 as to how interim measures of the European Court of Human Rights under Rule 39 of its rules are to be dealt with. None of these amendments is to be pressed to a Division, and so, following the example of the noble Baroness, I can be fairly brief. My Amendment 36 seeks to replace the...

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: I was trying to explain that I am not getting engaged in that kind of debate. We have discussed the issue very fully in Committee —this is Report, and I have stated my position. I hope that the noble Lord, who has spoken now, will be content to accept that I can proceed and present my position.

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

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I am not going to respond. As I say, this is Report, and I am adopting a very particular position on settled practice, which the United Kingdom has participated in without exception, ever since the matter first was put into the rules. That being so, the idea that this country can simply unilaterally depart from that practice when it suits it is contrary to international law and is...
