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

Alison Thewliss: I wish to speak to the reasoned amendment that stands in my name and that of my hon. Friends. Before I do so, I want to remark on the tragic news that has emerged that an asylum seeker aboard the Bibby Stockholm was found dead this morning. We do not know yet what the cause was, and we sympathise for that person and everybody who loved them, but what I do know is that our words and our...

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

Alison Thewliss: The right hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point. Through the Bill, this country is turning its back on its international obligations. It is a pathetic excuse for policy—a foghorn signalling to the far right. It is too weak for some of the Home Secretary’s colleagues, but too harsh for a few exceptional others. For all the talk of full fat versus semi-skimmed, it is more akin to milk...

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

Alison Thewliss: If the right hon. Member can explain how Rwanda is safe, I will certainly give way.

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

Alison Thewliss: I acknowledge that different lawyers will have different opinions. In its briefing, the Law Society of England and Wales says that the Government are being disingenuous in what they are claiming, and I will take their word for it.

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

Alison Thewliss: My hon. and learned Friend is absolutely correct, and has knowledge of many of these issues. It is important to reflect on those cases and what they actually mean, rather than what Government Members wish they meant. The Bill declares Rwanda safe in all circumstances. In so doing, it undermines the rule of law and the separation of powers, preventing the courts from establishing their own...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (12 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: India’s supreme court has upheld the Indian Government’s decision to revoke article 370 of the constitution, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. What assessment has the Minister made of the situation, as many Kashmiri constituents are quite worried?

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: They are not even Tories.

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Gosh, thank you very much, Sir Mark—it is much earlier than I was expecting to be called. I am glad to be here representing many of my constituents, over 2,600 of whom have written to me—more than on any other issue—to raise their concerns about the ongoing conflict in Gaza. They also signed the petitions in their hundreds, because they are deeply concerned by the ongoing conflict....

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: The hon. Lady makes an excellent point. I point to the situation of Dima, a student at Glasgow University who worked for the World Health Organisation. Her life, her child’s life, and her family were lost to bombardment. She had done nothing wrong. She was doing her very best to support people, as are many medical professionals in Gaza, who are trying their very best to make sure that...

Israel and Palestine — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (11 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: I would agree. The difficulty is that there is no end to this conflict in sight. We cannot see what the terms for ending this conflict will be as things stand, but we do know that all conflicts eventually end. They end with a ceasefire; they end with a piece of paper signed; they end with agreements being reached. The UK Government’s role in this is to seek to reach those agreements, not to...

Israel-Hamas War: Diplomacy (11 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: The Minister talks up the UK’s arms export licences, but Amnesty International has identified a particular loophole in those licences: the 2002 incorporation guidelines allow UK components to be sent to third destinations for onward export to Israel. Can he give me any assurances that, unlike in 2009 and 2014, that is not happening right now?

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Humpty Dumpty said, “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” Just by saying that Rwanda is a safe country does not make it so. Legislating does not make it so. The Home Secretary says that Rwanda is safe, yet somehow his treaty says that we will accept asylum seekers from Rwanda—from that safe country—so it is both safe and unsafe. He says...

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: No, he quoted the Home Secretary!

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Accuracy is incredibly important in this House, and I would not want something incorrect to be on the record. The Home Secretary said in his statement: “Other countries have since copied our plans with Rwanda”. I can find no evidence that that is accurate. Can you advise on this point of accuracy, Mr Deputy Speaker, because no country is copying the...

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: So it is not true.

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: “Exploring” is not “copying”.

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Further to that point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. On a point of accuracy, those who are being moved to Albania will be under Italian law. That is not the case in the Rwanda plan.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Rwanda ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 20 November 2023 to Question 2159 on Asylum: Rwanda, where on the Gov.uk website information on legal fees for R (on the application of AAA (Syria) and others) v Secretary of State for the Home Department and related cases is available.

Middle East: UK Military Deployments ( 5 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Can the Secretary of State tell us what role the RAF base in Cyprus is currently playing in this situation? Is any military matériel being moved through that base?

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: Applications ( 4 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many allowed (a) entry clearance and (b) in-country appeal decisions are awaiting implementation as of 29 November 2023.
