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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful. I clicked on it half an hour ago. Maybe they can do some clicking in the Box, because the information the Minister has just provided is false. He needs to correct the record, but he can do it in writing to me if he so wishes.

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: As the Minister confirmed to me, by definition, the safeguards that would make Rwanda safe are not in place, because the Rwandan Government are “working towards” having them in place. Why then are we asked to determine that Rwanda is currently safe when the Minister has said it is not?

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful to the noble Viscount. I listened carefully to what he said, including at Second Reading, and when he comes to make the case I will also listen carefully for that. If he will forgive me for saying so, we will be into the categories of plan C, D, E and F to try to make the Bill a bit better. I refer to the comments by the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, on the first group. These are all...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I speak briefly in support of my noble friend Lord German. It has been a short debate, in comparison to that on the first group, presumably because some have now given their Second Reading speeches on this Bill and that is sufficient for them. We will just have to go through the grind. It has, nevertheless, been an interesting debate. I will pick up on the point made by the noble...

UK-EU Trade: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises - Question (31 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, yesterday the Minister admitted to me that UK trade with the EU has declined but said that UK trade in services and goods with the rest of the world was going “gangbusters”. I looked up two things this morning. First, UK trade with the EU has declined by 1.4%, which is regrettable, but UK trade with the rest of the world has also declined, by more than 4%. The second thing I...

Situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories - Statement (30 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Benyon, is a respected Minister in this House and I mean no disrespect to him. However, we are asking questions on a Statement about the Foreign Secretary’s activities, in the House that he is a Member of, but repeated by another Minister, it having been made in the House of Commons. The Foreign Secretary made a very significant contribution to this debate,...

UK-Canada Trade Deal: Suspension of Negotiations - Question (30 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, among the letters I received from Ministers after every trade negotiating round with Canada, saying everything was on track, the letter telling me that things had gone off the rails—sorry, “paused”—must have gone astray. That information that the Minister gave is not new information. I warned the noble Lord, Lord Johnson, last summer, after I led a CPA delegation on trade to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: How will they know? The Illegal Migration Act prevents someone who may well have been trafficked from even starting the process of claiming that they have been trafficked here, so how will the Rwandans know? We are not collecting that information.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful, but that is prohibited in the Illegal Migration Act.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, my noble friends Lord German and Lord Thomas told us that we have a Bill in front of us, which the Government are asking us to support, which compels decision-makers to treat as fact things that have already been found to be false and to bar courts and tribunals from considering any evidence or arguments to the contrary. I have listened carefully to every contribution in this...

Ukraine - Motion to Take Note (26 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness and the pertinent questions she asked. They are valid questions, and I hope the Minister will reply to them in detail when he winds up. I welcome the noble Lord, Lord Camoys, to his place and note his excellent maiden speech. He remarked what a relief it is when people get your name correct at the start. In my first week here, I received...

Military Interventions Overseas - Question (25 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, notwithstanding the excellent question from the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Stirrup, with which I associate myself, is it not the case that Operation Prosperity Guardian—under the umbrella of the Combined Maritime Forces and Combined Task Force 153—now has strategic aims rather than responsive ones, as we would categorise an emergency. On that basis, there is a strong...

Ukraine: Reconstruction - Question (25 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, we now have £21.6 billion of frozen assets in the UK. Across Europe as a whole there are over £300 billion. On Monday, the European Union decided to institute a windfall tax on those frozen assets, which will accrue €2.3 billion for the Ukrainian people. Why are we not putting in place a windfall tax on frozen assets in the UK so that we can contribute to the Ukrainian people...

Action Against Houthi Maritime Attacks - Statement (24 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the UK is a penholder within the United Nations. In addition, the UK signed a development partnership agreement with the internationally recognised Government of Yemen last summer. Can the Leader of the House outline whether that agreement is still in place? Also, in the Statement he said that humanitarian assistance was central to this issue. I agree with him, but he will know that...

Gender Equality - Question (24 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, today is the International Day of Education and I agree with the Minister that education is critical to securing equality by the target date of 2030. Does he agree that it is concerning that access to education for girls, and for disabled children in particular, is getting worse? UNICEF has set an international benchmark for donor countries of 15% of their ODA being allocated to...

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (23 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the Companion is quite clear that we do not reopen at Third Reading elements of the debate that we had at earlier Bill stages, so this is an opportunity for me to thank the Minister for his openness. He has been assiduous in replying to questions, as I am sure he will be for those asked of him today. It perhaps illustrates that while we are passing this Bill which facilitates the UK...

Asylum: UK-Rwanda Agreement - Motion to Take Note (22 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I am grateful, since the noble Lord mentioned me, because I know interventions are unusual in this debate. I quoted the noble Lord, Lord Murray, word for word from Hansard when he said: “The UNHCR is … a UN body; it is not charged with the interpretation of the … convention”.—[Official Report, 24/5/23; col. 968.] The Supreme Court disagreed very clearly. I did not insert the word...

Asylum: UK-Rwanda Agreement - Motion to Take Note (22 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I am happy to follow the noble Baroness. I am grateful for the committee’s work, especially since the Commons is not debating the treaty. These Benches agree with the conclusions of the unanimous cross-party report and will support the Motions. I am also grateful to the Minister for his comprehensive reply and fulsome response to a letter that I wrote to the Foreign Secretary in...

Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve (18 Ion 2024)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing the measure so clearly. I agree with what he said. It is regrettable that I have had to cover a number of organisations to be proscribed—regrettable because we are living in an age, unfortunately, when there are organisations which abuse our liberties and freedoms. They are either terrorist organisations themselves or they support terror....
