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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: From a sedentary position. I agree with the noble Lord. I think Hansard picked it up: a successful 90% deterrent. The noble Lord heard me at Second Reading saying that we welcomed the Albania deal. An internationally legal, efficient, effective resettlement and relocation agreement is what works. This is not any of those. I happily give way to the noble Lord, Lord Murray.

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: Even for the noble Lord, it is a bit of a leap to say that a negotiated relocation agreement with Albania has been a deterrent because they may have thought we were going to send them to Rwanda. Even factually, I am afraid that he was incorrect. The noble Lord knows that the ministerial direction sought on the migration and economic development agreement with Rwanda was specifically for this...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I thank the noble Lord. I said that the court issued a press release; I did not say it made a judgment by press release. I think that is taking it a little too far. The noble Lord states that the domestic judicial processes had been concluded, but the court said that they had not. All I am relaying to the Committee is the decision that was made. In my view it is reasonable, but I am not a...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am not a lawyer and I do not wish to refer to any of the legal aspects of the amendment; there has already been enough of that in the excellent contributions from noble and learned Lords. I just want to address the point about why the United Kingdom should feel that we are particularly vulnerable to this court. There has been reference to other countries that have had interim measures...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: Just one moment—I will say what is reasonable and the noble Lord can say it is not. I think that, if there is an ongoing domestic judicial review process but the Government decide to deport that individual before it has concluded, there are reasonable grounds there. I will happily give way to the noble Lord.

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: It gave the decision that the ongoing domestic judicial review process should be concluded.

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: It might just be helpful if the noble Lord would apologise to my noble friend, to say that he was not in the Chamber at the commencement of this group.

Death of Alexei Navalny - Statement (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, some of us in the Chamber will be spending the rest of the day holding the Government to account and asking probing questions of Ministers. Some of us are frustrated, some of the questions are constructive, but we are carrying out democratic duties as politicians. We do so with utter liberty and take for granted that we are not under personal threat. Alexei Navalny, as the Minister...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am very concerned with what the Minister has literally just told us. The Minister has just said that, once this Bill has passed, there is no risk of refoulement. Article 10 of the treaty says: “The Parties shall cooperate to agree an effective system for ensuring that removal contrary to this obligation does not occur”. Those are not consistent. The effective system has to be in place,...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: Under CRaG, the scrutiny period for the treaty has now been concluded, so, for clarification, when will the UK ratify the treaty?

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: You said that the safeguards had to be in place.

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I have one final point for the Minister. If this legislation decrees on Royal Assent that Rwanda is a safe country, what is the point of having the safeguards he has mentioned?

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: The Minister is being generous in giving way, but what he just said contradicts what he said previously in Committee. At col. 70 of 12 February’s Official Report, I asked about the mechanisms for safeguards. It had been the Government’s position—until today, it seems—that the requirements of the Supreme Court would be met by the implementation of the treaty, which includes the...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful to the Minister for stating clearly that the Government of Rwanda have begun putting the safeguards in place. That is consistent with what he said earlier in Committee—that the Government of Rwanda are moving towards putting safeguards in place—but he accepted that Rwanda will be a safe country only when those are place, which may be after Royal Assent. Will an applicant be...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: The Minister just said that Rwanda is becoming safer, but in his earlier comments he said that it has begun to put measures in place, and he has previously confirmed to me that until they are in place, it cannot be determined that Rwanda is safe. The Bill will decree that it is safe before the measures are in place so that it is safe. Surely someone would be able to argue in a court that it...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I rise very briefly on that point to support the noble Baroness. We have heard in previous groups the concerns of the noble Lords, Lord Hannay and Lord Kerr, who is not in his place, and other noble Lords, that the debates which we are having in this House are being keenly viewed outside this House and very keenly in the United Nations Human Rights Council. It is a depressing fact...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 38 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I have added my name to these amendments. The noble and learned Lord, Lord Etherton, spoke very powerfully in moving them, and I shall not seek to repeat anything that he said. It is a pleasure to follow the experience and knowledge of noble Lords who have spoken before me in this group. I just wish to refer to two elements of why I have supported the amendments. I know that my...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for outlining the elements of the ETIF and the MEDP, but could he place in the Library a more detailed breakdown? The £20 million credit line for operational does seem to be one part of a credit line. The Minister says that I was incorrect in stating that there was a total of £100 million. I will happily take him at his word if that is the case, but a...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: The person who would have a right to asylum in the UK under this Bill would no longer have the right to asylum in the UK. It is completely different. They may have a right to asylum in Rwanda, but that is not the right that they had when they were here which is going to be taken away from them.
