RNLI Bicentenary — [Carolyn Harris in the Chair] (26 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Harris. I congratulate my hon. Friend and constituency neighbour the Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) on securing this debate, and I thank my colleagues on the Backbench Business Committee for agreeing to it. It is very apt to be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the RNLI, given the role that it plays for communities in south...

Justice: Topical Questions (26 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: The tragic reality is that when intimate partners murder, women are the victims in 90% of cases. What progress have the Government made since the Wade review on ensuring that justice is done in these cases?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: It is always a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for East Antrim (Sammy Wilson). I agree with much of what he said, but I will differ from him on the one or two amendments he plans to support. It is worth remembering the purpose of the Bill. It is about dealing with one of the knottiest problems in illegal migration policy, which is what we do about those who leave a safe and...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: I thank the shadow Minister for giving way. He says he wants removals to a safe third country. Which one?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: It is always good to listen to an intervention, but I will repeat it for him. He said that one part of his plan was to remove people to a safe third country. Simply question: if not Rwanda, which one?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: Like me, the Minister has always believed that immigration should be dealt with on a UK rather than a Great Britain basis, for obvious reasons. Given the comments that we have just heard, does he agree that there is plenty of precedent within our own law for deeming certain claims for certain citizens inadmissible? That has applied to the EU, and surely it is not a problem to extend it...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: Does the Minister recall that the Supreme Court judgment hinged on the issue of refoulement and not on whether or not refugees were safe in Rwanda? It might benefit some to have listened to its judgment.

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: Will the Minister commit to writing to me, and perhaps placing a copy of the letter in the Library, setting out where the numbers have changed in each region as defined by the areas that are covered in the duty rota schemes?

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: On the numbers, I want to be clear that the issue is people actively taking cases. One retired solicitor who knew I had secured this debate told me that he still gets an email each year saying that he is still licensed to do stuff, even though he has not actually practised as a criminal lawyer in 10 years. It is the numbers of people actively doing things.

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: I agree with the Minister about physical office locations, not least in an era of homeworking. My concern is not so much about the physical local of an office. If firms merge, there is still the potential for conflicts. If there are four firms doing this work in Devon, and five defendants, there is the potential for so-called cut-throat defence. It is not about whether there is a physical...

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: The Minister is being very generous in inviting interventions. He will know that I sometimes hear with interest the words “in due course”—they are commonly used, and it is amazing what they can cover. Can he give me a flavour of any timelines that have been set for work on the response? For example, is he aiming to publish it by the summer? I hear what he says about training, and...

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: I beg to move, That this House has considered the duty solicitor scheme. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. In preparing for this debate, I have been particularly grateful to Rob Newman, a retired solicitor who lives in my constituency, and Tony Steiner, the chief executive of the Devon and Somerset Law Society, for their thoughts and guidance on the subject. It...

Duty Solicitor Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: I can only agree with my friend, the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon), about encouraging people to go into this area of legal aid. There are issues around legal aid more generally, but in this area, police station interviews, police station duty and the right to representation at a police station all create different challenges from those faced in, for example, providing legal aid in...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Low or no reasonable expectation of privacy ( 7 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: I am interested in the Minister’s example of the Panama papers. As he rightly says, when those papers were originally held by a bank or a financial institution, there would be an expectation of privacy. However, he is alluding to where they are sourced from. Those papers have been freely circulating on the open internet and anyone can download them, and it is at that point that the low or...

Income Tax (Charge) ( 6 Maw 2024)

Kevin Foster: It will come as no surprise to the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) that while it is a pleasure to follow him, I do not agree with many of his suggestions. I do agree, however, that housing is one of the defining issues, and while I might not agree with his proposed solutions, it is certainly something we need to address. It is worth looking at this country’s economic...
