Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: My Lords, I am not quite sure what follows the soft cop and the hard cop; certainly not the fair cop. I would like to add three points to the case against these changes, which has been so brilliantly put by the two cops. I have two points about process, one about substance. On legislative process, it is absurd to produce a 289-page volume of detailed changes with no impact assessment. It is...

Defence Spending - Statement (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: My Lords, I used to work for Peter Carrington and Denis Healey, two great Defence Secretaries. I have been trying to work out how they would have reacted to this Statement. They would certainly have welcomed the increase in defence spending. It is clearly necessary and they would have said so. I think they both would have said that it is not enough but that it is certainly to be welcomed....

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

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: I think the noble and learned Lord is talking about Article 10(3) of the treaty. He will know what I am going to ask, because this is the fourth time I have asked it. Article 10(3) commits the parties—us and Rwanda—to “cooperate to agree an effective system for ensuring” no refoulement. That system clearly did not exist when the treaty was signed. The signatories of the treaty,...

Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (IAC Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: I entirely agree with the Minister about ISDS. Will he confirm that ISDS will be in any trade deal we sign with India?

Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (IAC Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: It is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Marland. I shall be slightly less concise, but I bear the earlier discussion in mind. On my tombstone will be the words: “He was an inaugural member of the International Agreements Committee”. No more need be said: it is the peak of my career. I was lucky enough to be on that sub-committee of the EU Committee which preceded and then...

United Kingdom: Union - Motion to Take Note (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: I agree with the noble and learned Lord. My point can be put much more succinctly. I warmly welcome the Minister and look forward to his remarks, and would be grateful if he could convey to the Leader of the House the point that I am about to make. As a Scottish unionist, I believe that our debates in this Chamber would be much improved if the SNP took part. I would also, of course, like to...

West Midlands Combined Authority (Transfer of Police and Crime Commissioner Functions) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: My Lords, I was alerted to this strange case by the noble Lord, Lord Bach, when he raised it in our debates in October. I still know very little about it that I have not learned from his speeches, and from the excellent report by the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee under the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Wirral. It is a very strange story and I worry that I am beginning to think I am...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: When the House voted to delay ratification of the treaty, it did so on the basis that there was unfinished business and on the basis of a list of 10 requirements, most of which were for the Government of Rwanda, which should be fulfilled before Rwanda could be declared safe. Among these was the requirement in Article 10(3) of the treaty “to agree an effective system for ensuring” that...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 33 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Have the procedures required under Article 10.3 of the treaty to ensure that refoulement does not take place, as it did in the Israeli case, yet been devised?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 22 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: My Lords, there is an irrefutable case, in my view. It is very odd when you think about it. We had three days in Committee and a long Second Reading, and the Government have heard nothing from us which is of any interest to them. There are no government amendments on the Marshalled List today, not a single one, and the Government have shown no signs of picking up, improving, adjusting, or...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Can the Minister confirm that the arrangement described in Article 10(3) of the treaty has been devised: that is, the arrangement to ensure that refoulement does not in practice occur? The treaty imposes an obligation on both parties to agree a process. Has it been agreed, and can we see it?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 66 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: It is quite wrong to insult the Civil Service.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 57 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: I strongly agree with the point that the noble Baroness has made. My name is to Amendments 57 and 59. It is rather appropriate that we come to these amendments immediately after the House has considered the murder of Navalny. There is a precedent for what we are asked to do in Clauses 5(2) and 5(3)—a Russian precedent. In 2016, the Russian Parliament passed a decree enabling the Russian...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 57 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: The noble Lord is well aware that the Strasbourg court has decided to pass various reforms and the anonymity of the judge is a thing of the past. I am not an expert on the Strasbourg court. However, I am a believer that if we maintain that we believe in the rule of law, we cannot pick and choose which bits of international law we comply with. That is a point I put forward at Second Reading...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 46 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: I do not entirely follow the argument of the noble Baroness. If an individual is trafficked across the Mediterranean and the channel, I do not see how the argument about deterrence applies. Their movement to our shores is involuntary; how would the passing of this Bill deter those who did not choose to come here but were trafficked here? I do not really follow the argument. This is an...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 39 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Could the Minister tell us whether the draft Rwandan law exists?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 39 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Further to the Minister’s answer to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, does the system—the effective system for ensuring that removal contrary to the obligation does not occur—exist?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 39 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Forgive me: I am just trying to understand the Minister’s position on the point raised by the noble Lord, Lord Purvis, and pursued by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer. The treaty requires the parties to set up a system—it says they shall agree a system. The Minister is saying that Rwanda is safe and implying that that system has been set up, or at least has been agreed, and will...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 39 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Could the Minister then tell us what that system is? When will the House see that system? It would help us to judge how real the remaining risk of removal to a third country is if we could see the system that has apparently been created to ensure that that risk does not come to fruition.

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

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: Will the Minister say whether the reports from the monitoring committee to the joint committee will be made available to the House?
