Partner and Spousal Visas: Minimum Income — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (23 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: As ever, the hon. Gentleman makes a very pertinent point. I would like to hear from the Minister what consideration he has taken of the effect on the nations of the United Kingdom. There does not seem to me to be any objective assessment of what this will mean and the impact it will have. The Scottish Government have expressed concerns. We in Scotland have presented an alternative to the...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (23 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I have had concerns raised about a company based in England but operating across the UK online that shape shifts and is known variously as Young Vibes, Peaky Parents, Kactus Kids, “themumsnet” and, currently, Anxiety Recovery. It offers to fix children’s anxiety in mere weeks, but it is preying on vulnerable families, drawing them into expensive treatments, and inciting them to take out...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I thank the hon. Gentleman—he is quite right to point that out in the way that he has. It has been further reported in The Independent that an Afghan intelligence analyst who worked alongside members of the RAF has been threatened with removal to Rwanda. He says, “I call on the prime minister and the government to stand by the promise they made during the fall of Kabul. If the legal ways,...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker; I am addressing the amendment that is in front of us. Lords amendment 3J seeks a very small concession to Parliament: that this place should have some kind of scrutiny over whether Rwanda remains a safe country. Conservative Members were all about taking back control, but when it comes to scrutiny of the treaties and obligations we are signing up to, it is...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I rise again to put on the record the SNP’s opposition to this awful Bill. We do not support the state-sponsored people-trafficking Bill on Rwanda, and we will oppose it in any way we can. I was quite disappointed to hear the Labour Lords caving on the Afghan amendment. If they think that this is some kind of concession, I have some magic beans to sell them—honestly, it is pathetic. Holly...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The Minister opened by saying that he had looked forward last week to not debating the Bill. I, too, wish that we did not have to debate it; indeed, I wish that it had never been brought to this House in the first place. I wish that it had never seen the light of day. If he never wanted to debate it again, he could of course have accepted the Lords amendments last week, instead of stringing...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention, and note on the record that Labour did not vote on any of the reasons that I sought to amend in the Reasons Committee. I have yet to hear any explanation for why Labour Members would not use any mechanism available to them to oppose the Bill. We had yet another press conference this afternoon. The Prime Minister did not come to this House to talk...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I wholeheartedly agree. I know of many cases of people who have been sorely let down by the Government. We note that the figures that the Government brought out this morning show that there has been an increase in small boat arrivals in the past three months compared with last year. The plan is hardly any kind of deterrent if people are still coming over in small boats in their droves. Among...

Sudan: Government Response (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I thank the Minister for his previous engagement regarding a number of my constituents whose family members have been stuck, and affected by the ongoing conflict in Sudan. May I ask what conversations he has had with his counterparts in Egypt, who, as far as I understand, are still suspending the issue of visas to Sudanese nationals who are holding UK travel documents, with the result that...

Written Answers — Home Office: Brook House Immigration Removal Centre (22 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the start and end times were of the two day-time and one night-time lock-in periods at Brook House IRC as of (a) 12 April 2024 and (b) 1 November 2023.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Pakistan: Elections (18 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, whether he has made an assessment of the potential implications for his policies of reports of electoral irregularities in the Pakistani general election of 8 February 2024; and whether he has had discussions with his Pakistani counterpart on allowing an impartial and fair investigation of such irregularities.

Petition - Recommendations of the Infected Blood Inquiry (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I rise to present a petition on behalf of my constituents regarding the recommendations of the infected blood inquiry. I note the letter from the Paymaster General today, but people have waited far too long for justice and this inquiry, and need to be compensated. It has been a year since the recommendations from Sir Brian Langstaff, and people need to have the money they are entitled to....

Finance (No. 2) Bill (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: My hon. Friend is making some excellent points about fuel poverty. When I conducted a survey of Dalmarnock residents about its impact, I found that it had a hugely detrimental effect on their health and wellbeing. They could not even invite family members round because their houses were cold and they could not afford to switch the kettle on to give them a cup of tea. Pensioners were going to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I will start in order with Lords amendment 1D in the name of Lord Coaker. The Minister asked why the Government ought to have due regard for those particular pieces of legislation—why would we want to have due regard for international law and various Acts, including the Children Act 1989, the Human Rights Act 1998, and the Modern Slavery Act 2015? Well, the reason is found on the face of...

Afghan Refugees: Deportation from Pakistan (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: It is absolutely ludicrous that, three years after the fall of Afghanistan, we are still talking about people that the UK Government have left behind. It is absolutely appalling and incompetent that those who supported the UK missions in Afghanistan have been so woefully neglected. Can the Minister tell me exactly how many people are waiting for the UK Government to get their act together and...

Humanitarian Situation in Gaza (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The director-general of the World Health Organisation, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, has talked about the devastating destruction of Gaza’s hospitals, and the dead bodies still being removed from the ruins of Al-Shifa Hospital. Will the United Kingdom fund the WHO and other charities on the ground in Gaza to rebuild the shattered hospitals that have been destroyed under Israeli bombardment? Will...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if his Department will issue guidance on the exceptional circumstances that would permit an asylum or human rights claim made by a national of a country listed under section 80AA of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 to be declared admissible.

Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Ukrainian Member of Parliament, Mykola Stefanchuk, is in the Public Gallery this afternoon. I am sure we all wish to welcome him and wish Ukraine “Slava Ukraini”. Mykola has told me that Ukraine has the people and the courage, but does not currently have the weapons and the air defence to secure her freedom. In light of the Russian attacks on Chernihiv this morning, which have killed at...

Tobacco and Vapes Bill (16 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The proliferation of vapes has happened almost overnight. Does my hon. Friend share the concerns of my constituent, who runs a newsagent and tobacconist, that he is holding the fort on legislation about the sale of tobacco, yet vapes are not subject to the same controls? He may refuse somebody because he does not think they are of age to buy a vape, but he finds they just go down the street...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (15 Ebr 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Having met many constituents and other people who have been victims, as the hon. Member sets out, I know this is devastating for them, when it is already difficult enough to escape from their traffickers, and it is already difficult enough to speak out about this and have their case believed by anybody. Article 13 of the Rwanda treaty, which will allow the UK to never conclusively determine...
