Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 20 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, I apologise for not previously intervening on this Bill. I have no leasehold interests but, given that I will support the right reverend Prelate’s amendment, I should declare that, until very recently, my son sung in the excellent cathedral choir at Southwell Minster. It is very difficult for the Government to argue against the point raised by the right reverend Prelate. It cannot...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (20 Maw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, I rise to answer one question posed by the noble Lord, Lord Carlile. He asked your Lordships to ponder the position of the Rwandan Parliament and said that we must not second guess what it may do. What he forgot to mention is that Rwanda has a monist system, so a treaty entered into by the Government of Rwanda is capable of being relied upon in their domestic courts. As I previously...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (20 Maw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: No, that is simply not the case at all. What the noble Lord appears to suggest is that there is a confusion in the Rwandan constitution; I do not see that at all. The point is that they have agreed that treaties will have a kind of direct effect in domestic courts and once ratified, that is indeed the case. The concern by which he sought to encourage noble Lords to support the Motion before...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: If it will assist the noble and learned Lord, the Chamber of Deputies of the Rwandan Parliament has approved the treaty. It needs to go to the Senate, and that should happen in the next fortnight or thereabouts, as I understand it.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Article 16(5) of the treaty confirms that any alteration to the terms of reference of the monitoring committee must not be, “contrary to those provided in Article 15” of the treaty. Article 15 sets out pretty comprehensively what the independent monitoring committee should be doing.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I rise in response to a point raised by the noble Lord, Lord Cashman, who referred to an article in today’s Times written by a Member of the other place, Joanna Cherry. She is, of course, the chair of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, on which I sit. I attended the same meetings as she did with members of the LGBT community in Rwanda and with the chairman of the Legal Aid Forum. I must...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The characterisation of the mentality in Rwanda that the noble Lord asserts does not reflect that of the community representatives whom the JCHR met last week. It is clear from the evidence that they gave us that Rwanda is very much a leading light in east Africa, being an open and tolerant home for LGBT+ people. Indeed, it is very much felt in the region that gay people are at home there....

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 17 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Is the logic of the noble Lord’s point therefore that the Government would be better to repeal the Human Rights Act completely and revert to the pre-1998 situation?

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, as a member of the JCHR delegation, I had the benefit of visiting the very hospital in Kigali that will provide mental health support to relocated individuals. It was an impressive experience. That hospital has very capable psychiatric and psychological care. This is perhaps unsurprising given the context in which Rwanda finds itself. This is a country that, 30 years ago, was caused...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: As a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, I was in Rwanda last Thursday. More particularly, I was in the Rwandan Parliament. I can confirm to your Lordships’ House that, on Wednesday last week, the Rwandan Chamber of Deputies ratified the treaty by 64 votes to two. Rwanda is a monist country, unlike this country, which is dualist. That means that the international obligations of...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: As the noble Lord will be well aware, the treaty is directly reflective of all the Supreme Court’s concerns about the safety of Rwanda. The fact that there are refugees from a certain country does not mean that that country is of itself always and everywhere unsafe.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Will the noble Lord give way?

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: It is very interesting that the noble Lord should refer to the effectiveness of the Albania arrangement. The document that the noble Lord likes to refer to in relation to the ministerial direction on deterrence came before the Albania deal, the 90% drop and the tangible evidence that deterrence works that we saw as a result of the Albania deal. We can extrapolate from the experience of the...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Is it not the case that the answer to the question of the noble Lord, Lord Anderson, is that it depends? We know from the Policy Exchange paper and many other sources that there have been many cases where Rule 39 indications have not been complied with by states parties, including France, Italy, Albania and Slovakia. It all depends on the circumstances, does it not?

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Of course it is right that NSK’s application for an interim injunction was heard by the High Court—by the lead judge of the Administrative Court—and the interim relief application was refused. That was appealed to the Court of Appeal, which agreed with the single judge that there should be no interim relief. Application for permission to appeal to the Supreme Court was refused by the...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: There is nothing wrong with sending adults, I said rhetorically, because that is the effect of Section 57. Those who are found to be adults may be sent, and if they wish to challenge that finding, they can do that from Rwanda.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My noble friend the Minister might want to make reference to the powers that this Parliament has already passed in Section 57 of the Illegal Migration Act, which provide for those judicial reviews to be conducted abroad once the section comes into force.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Green. For my part, I agree with his assessment. However, it is one of the unfortunate features of the area that our more generous arrangements for handling unaccompanied asylum-seeking children are open to abuse and are abused. We needed to take steps to stop that. That is why, in the Illegal Migration Act, we put into force...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, tempted though I am to engage with the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, on that very interesting philosophical question, that might be beyond the ambit of this particular amendment. I will speak in particular to Amendment 33, which I oppose because it has no purpose. I remind the Committee that Section 4 of the Human Rights Act provides to the courts, at High Court level and above, a power to...
