Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I accept the Minister’s point about not wanting to provide legal loopholes. However, on her next point, about whether it is in the public interest to prosecute, I wonder whether there might be a compromise solution on the wider interest. It is blatantly obvious that issues of culture and religion will be relevant to whether somebody feels compelled. I would be more reassured if she could...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I am a little uncomfortable about the direction of travel here. We need to be careful that we are not so concerned about the impact of headlines that we are not prepared to take the right decision. I understand some of the points that the Minister is making and that the wrong type of publicity will encourage the wrong type of behaviour, which will also affect victims. I understand that, but I...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I cannot understand why we are leaving this reference in the clause. I must say that I am more concerned after hearing the Minister’s answer than I was before. The wording is incredibly torturous. Why do we not just remove the reference, out of respect for children? We have already heard from a number of Members that this is not the norm for a child.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I want to take the Minister back because I am still worried by the wording she used. She tried to outline the differences between what “compelled” would mean for an adult and for a child. It seems extremely vague; I do not know how anybody is going to prove whether they felt that they had to do something or not. It seems an awful lot of trouble and more likely to lead to children being...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I rise to make a few remarks about amendment 88 and those tabled by the hon. Member for Foyle, to which I added my name. Clause 39 is to be welcomed as an important addition to the Bill. The creation of a statutory defence for the victims of modern slavery will help to protect them, and I hope encouraging witnesses who may have been involved in illegal acts to come forward will lead to more...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: My hon. Friend makes that point extremely well. It concerns me that the clause does not currently do what it sets out to do, which is to protect  the most vulnerable victims that the hon. Member for Foyle spoke about. I am concerned that the clause, as drafted, is flawed and I hope the Minister can offer us some reassurance on that.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 35 - General functions of Commissioner (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I thank the hon. Gentleman for raising that issue. The Minister may not be aware that he and I serve on a cross-party parliamentary inquiry looking at immigration detention. In our first hearing, we heard from a gentleman who had been trafficked and was held in Colnbrook for three and a half years. He found it extremely difficult to get people to understand that evidence, and it was extremely...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 23 - Slavery and trafficking risk orders ( 9 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I have tabled amendment 87 to get some clarity from the Minister about the orders, and it picks up on some of the points that the right hon. Member for Delyn made about half an hour ago. Some of my questions about the evidential proof required were answered by the Minister’s earlier response, but I have others I would like to put to her.  My main concern is that such orders could be used...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 23 - Slavery and trafficking risk orders ( 9 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: What is the Minister going to do to make it clear to the police and the Director of Public Prosecutions that the priority is prosecution, rather than using these orders? If people find they can apply quite quickly and get things sorted, the case might never proceed to conviction, especially when victims will undoubtedly be nervous about giving evidence. How will we ensure that we prioritise...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 7 - Confiscation of assets ( 9 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: The hon. Lady is asking some interesting questions about legal aid. Has she considered the influence of the residence test and, if so, does that influence underlie part of her concern? Effectively, I am putting that question through her to the Minister.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 6 - Sentencing ( 9 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I was also extremely fond of Jim, a fellow Catholic. I always found him kind and wise. He was extremely helpful to me when I had a constituent who was addicted to prescription drugs. He supported her attempt to get attention for what had happened to her. He did extremely good work. He is an example of an MP who stuck to a couple of causes and kept going doggedly, which shows how much...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 5 - Penalties ( 4 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I do not want to detain the Committee by making a speech, but I put on record that I am also very supportive of the amendment tabled by the hon. Member for Slough.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 3 - Meaning of exploitation ( 4 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I want to make a few remarks about the amendments tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate. I will also say a couple of things about clause 3 in general. I was going to wait for the next group of amendments to make those more general remarks, but they pick up on some of the points my hon. Friend has just made, so if it is okay to do so, Mr Pritchard, although clause stand...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 1 - Slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour ( 2 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: As a constituency MP I have seen the impact on people’s behaviour when they realise that their immigration status is not regularised. I have seen a number of adults who were unwilling even to register at doctors’ surgeries or come forward for any kind of help. They can find themselves in an extraordinarily vulnerable situation, and may be willing to consent to the position in which they...

Written Answers — Home Department: Asylum ( 1 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people who used the Assisted Voluntary Returns scheme (a) submitted their first asylum claim after being detained in an immigration removal and (b) had their asylum case decided within the Detained Fast Track in each of the last five years for which records are available.

Written Answers — Home Department: Detention Centres: Internet (22 Gor 2014)

Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which websites detainees in each immigration detention centre are blocked from accessing.

Written Answers — Home Department: Immigrants: Detainees (22 Gor 2014)

Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will hold an inquiry into trends in the number of deaths of individuals detained in immigration detention.

Relocation Scheme (Syrians) — [Jim Dobbin in the Chair] (16 Gor 2014)

Sarah Teather: I want to press the Minister a little further, because there is concern about numbers. I want to get from him a sense of whether this scheme is proceeding at the pace he expected. Was the Government’s initial ambition simply that we would only resettle two or three a month or was it higher? Has there been a problem and, if there has, what is it and what are the Government doing to try to...

Relocation Scheme (Syrians) — [Jim Dobbin in the Chair] (16 Gor 2014)

Sarah Teather: The Minister did not quite answer the question put by the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell), which I also asked. The Minister mentioned the basis of the Government’s statement, but did not explain how we arrived at the position of saying that we would support several hundred, as opposed to several thousand or tens of thousands. Why that particular figure?
