Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Yvette Cooper: That is an interesting point. It is true that the Rwanda treaty that has been agreed states that first the United Kingdom will need to take some refugees from Rwanda, but it does not specify who will pay for those refugees. We know that people who are transferred to Rwanda will be paid for by the UK taxpayer, and also that people can be returned if, for example, they commit serious crimes in...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Yvette Cooper: My right hon. Friend has made an important point about, in particular, the issues relating to Afghanistan, where we know there has been huge persecution by the Taliban. We also know that there are people who helped our armed forces and, effectively, worked for the UK Government in Afghanistan, and as a result have been targeted by the Taliban. The Afghan resettlement scheme set up by the Home...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Yvette Cooper: As the hon. Member will know, we should be returning people who do not have a foundation in persecution or conflict, who do not have a well-founded asylum claim. They should be being returned to their own country. But he will also know that there has been a 50% drop in the returns of failed asylum seekers since 2010—a huge drop. We should be working with a new returns and enforcement unit,...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The hon. Member will know that people from countries such as Eritrea and Iran are very often granted asylum, and will not be sent to Rwanda under his Government’s policy because Rwanda will only be able to take a hundred or a couple of hundred people a year, at a cost of hundreds of millions of pounds. That is the core dishonesty and the failure at the heart of the Government’s...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I will give way one more time. I need to finish so that others can speak.

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Yvette Cooper: My hon. Friend is right, which is why Labour will set up a new returns unit with 1,000 staff to do returns and enforcement—to actually get returns agreements in place, to go through individual cases and to reverse the 50% drop in returns since 2010. Instead of the Rwanda scheme, as part of our five-point plan to strengthen border security and to fix the Tories’ asylum chaos we would use...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I welcome the immigration Minister to his place. Is he aware that while he has been speaking the New Conservatives, the European Research Group, the Northern Research Group, the Conservative Growth Group and the Common Sense Group have all said that they cannot support the Bill and are going to abstain tonight? Does he accept that this looks like the Prime Minister’s breakfast meeting was a...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I beg to move an amendment, to leave out from “That” to the end of the Question and add: “this House, while affirming support for securing the UK’s borders, reforming the broken asylum system and ending dangerous small boat crossings, declines to give a Second Reading to the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill because the Bill will not work to tackle people smuggling gangs,...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: The hon. Gentleman hopes that his Prime Minister has a plan, but no Back Bencher on either side of the House seems to agree with it. We are clear that what we should be doing is using the hundreds of millions of pounds that the Government are wasting in cheques written to Rwanda for nothing—for a scheme that will send, at best, only a few hundred people—to strengthen our border security,...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will give way to the hon. Member if he can say whether he agrees with the previous immigration Minister or the current one.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: The trouble is that they are not—they are just not. The scale of the Government’s operations to go after the criminal gangs is tiny. The £300 million that the Government have already committed to Rwanda is a third of the budget of the National Crime Agency. They are prepared to put that investment into Rwanda—into this tiny scheme that will affect only a couple hundred people—but are...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: The hon. Member is totally right. I have now heard of a series of failed asylum cases in which people want to return to their home countries and have applied to the Home Office to be able to do so, and the Home Office has told them that they will have to wait six months because it is so incapable of getting a grip. In the case that the hon. Member has raised, somebody has been waiting for 12...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: Well, £400 million for a failing plan is a hell of a lot of money. What we need to do is clear the backlog, and Labour has set out a proposal for 1,000 new caseworkers to clear the backlog and for a new returns unit to make sure that, instead of this 50% collapse in returns, we actually return people who have no right to be here. Do that—clear the asylum backlog and end the asylum...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will give way to my former colleague on the Home Affairs Committee.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I totally agree with the hon. Member. That is why I hope there will be cross-party support for a plan to have a major new returns unit to turn that around. We have 40,000 people here who have had their claim rejected and should be returned, and they are not being returned. There has been a 50% drop in returns under the Conservatives over the 13 years of the Conservative Government, and a...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will make some progress first. On the treaty and the Bill before us, the treaty says that numbers are limited by Rwandan capacity. The number of vulnerable refugees sent here, of course, is not limited. The treaty says Rwanda can terminate the deal at any time and does not have to take anybody. The treaty also says the UK will fund support for asylum seekers and people granted refugee...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I think the right hon. Member is just highlighting the failure of those on his Front Bench. All of us should want to stop these dangerous boat crossings. They are undermining border security and they are putting lives at risk. We should be seeking to smash the criminal gangs and we should be seeking to strengthen our border security. We should be seeking to return people who have no right to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will make some progress, and then I will give way to the right hon. Member. The problem is that, even as the Bill stands, it risks breaking international law, and that makes it harder to get further returns agreements and to get the further security co-operation that we need with our nearest neighbours. It is also why, if the One Nation group supports it, that puts its members in a pretty...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will give way. I did promise to give way to the right hon. Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Sir Simon Clarke), and I will come back to him in the moment.
