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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful to the noble Lord and, to some extent, I agree with him. If we have a legal migration system that has been a catastrophic failure, and the Government then seem to wish to scapegoat those fleeing conflict or danger to claim asylum here, I am not surprised that this dominates the debate. But the Government should not look at us when it comes to that situation. I found it...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I speak to Amendment 74 in my name in this group and associate myself with all the questions that the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, asked. I will also, with this amendment, seek to follow the money. We heard in the previous group but one what I thought was an interesting exchange between the noble Lord, Lord Green, and the Minister with regard to the concern about the social fabric and...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: There is no obligation on the monitoring committee to publish its report, so how will we know what they are?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: What are the mechanisms —since, as my noble friend Lord Scriven said, the courts are no longer able to look at this—by which we can judge whether Rwanda will adhere to its treaty obligations? The Minister said that this is now going to be a duty of the court of Parliament: what is our mechanism in Parliament for doing that?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: Not on the theory point but on the practical point of what the Bill states, can the Minister just expand a bit more? He said that there will be a monitoring committee that will report to the joint committee of the Governments. How will they report to Parliament if we are to make a judgment, subsequently, that we wish to repeal this?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: The noble Lord is an expert in these areas. If the Bill goes through, what is his estimate of how many people will be relocated from the backlog that he has referred to, and over how many years? I think it could take up to 20 years. How will that deplete Wembley Stadium?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, perhaps it is only the House of Lords that when asked to find a precedent can refer back to 1531. I say to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hoffman, that I was aware of that issue, because I have seen the Act. It was on display in the National Archives in its exhibition on treason last year. I think the Minister has also seen it. It was also noted that it was repealed quite shortly...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: The Government are asking us to be the perpetual judge of the legislation and actions of another country. That puts the legislature in an unusual position. In fact, it puts it into a unique position, specifically for this country. I am not a judge on Rwandan legislation, policy or actions. I have been to Rwanda; I respect it greatly and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. I have been massively...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful to the noble Baroness. The Minister might see two examples and ask when it becomes a pattern. Again, I am not a judge for it. As I was saying, we are not just asked to judge that Rwanda is a safe country under this legislation but we are asked to agree to legislation that states that Rwanda will never be unsafe. How on earth can we possibly do that? On Monday, the Minister found...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: This is the point I made at Second Reading. Section 22 of the Illegal Migration Act disapplies all of what the Minister just said when someone arrives by an irregular route. It disapplies the process of someone claiming that they are a victim of trafficking; it disapplies their ability to be referred to the NRM; and it disapplies the Home Office or the receiving officer taking this...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am still waiting on the letter. Section 22 of the Illegal Migration Act, on modern slavery, disapplies that. It is not possible for that to happen under the Illegal Migration Act.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I have a specific question to ask. I do not doubt the Minister’s motives or morality; I think that doing this is just wrong. On 12 July—I checked the record—the Minister’s predecessor, the noble Lord, Lord Murray, told the House when we were voting on the trafficking amendments to the Illegal Migration Bill that only British nationals could be referred to the NRM. The Minister needs...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, Mary is 19; she is in Gezira, in Sudan, just by the Ethiopian border. She has been offered employment as domestic staff in Dubai and her passport is taken away for the journey. The employment agency that recruited her from the refugee camp—because she is displaced, like many hundreds of thousands in Gezira—have also taken a record of her family and where they are from, including...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: Before the noble Lord sits down, can he answer a question? Under Home Office figures, 78% of those people who have been referred to the national referral mechanism for being trafficked or in modern slavery have been successful and, by definition, a woman who is trafficked here—not smuggled but trafficked—will be unaware of the final destination. It will be against her will. How will she...

Palestinian State: UK Recognition - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I welcome the Foreign Secretary’s comments on the flexibility of recognising the state of Palestine before there is a full agreement with the State of Israel. I declare that I will travel to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Ramallah from tomorrow night. What message can the Foreign Secretary share with these Benches that I can take to those I will meet that he has persuaded like-minded...

Children in Gaza - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the Foreign Secretary referred to UNICEF—

Children in Gaza - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful to the Chief Whip. UNICEF has said today that 600,000 displaced children are in Rafah in Gaza. That is comparable to the entire under-12 population of Scotland being displaced to one postcode area. Does the Foreign Secretary agree that for any belligerent in a conflict to advise children and civilians to relocate, on the pretext of their safety, to an area where there is no...

Developing World: Debt Reduction - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I agree with the Foreign Secretary about increasing the capacity of Governments’ treasuries and their finance ministries to collect their own revenues, as well as trade facilitation, so that those trade ministries have greater capacity to trade out of poverty. I declare an interest as the co-chair of the All-Party Group on Trade out of Poverty. Does the Foreign Secretary believe that it was...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: For the Minister to be persuasive in response to that question, he would not have said that they are working towards putting safeguards in place—safeguards which have to be in place, in respect of the point about refoulement made by the noble Lord, Lord Howard. The Minister said that they were working towards putting safeguards in place. The noble Lord, Lord Sharpe, said no relocation would...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful to the Minister. That is the closest we have got to an answer: “working towards”. Can we pursue that a wee bit more? If the Rwandan Government are “working towards” putting safeguards in place, that means they are not currently in place. Is that correct?
