Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: That is another question, I suppose. The point is that everyone is different. We cannot reliably look at someone and tell their age. The Bill should contain more protections to ensure that children who have already gone through incredibly traumatic experiences are not sent to Rwanda.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: As I have said, I am conscious of what we have been told about time. I am sure that if the hon. Lady wants to make a speech on this subject later, we will all listen to it. Lords amendment 8 adds a mechanism for a report to Parliament. Under the heading “Removals to Rwanda under the Illegal Migration Act 2023”, it states: “Within 60 days of the day on which this Act is passed, the...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: It remains the position of the Scottish National party that this is an irredeemably awful Bill. We do not support the Rwanda plan; we think it is both an offence to humanity and an egregious waste of public money, particularly at a time when many of our constituents are struggling to feed themselves. I thank the Lords for their work on the Bill and for at least trying to make it in some way...

Work and Pensions: Support for Pensioners (18 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: It is all very well people applying for pension credit, but The Well advice centre in my constituency has identified massive delays in people getting the pension credit for which they are eligible. One constituent got in touch with me in February, having applied for pension credit in August 2023, and they were still waiting for the application to be resolved, resulting in a backdating of more...

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I beg to move amendment (a), “That resources for use for current purposes be reduced by £740,850,000 relating to asylum and migration.” The amendment stands in my name and that of my honourable colleagues. As the Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, the right hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Dame Diana Johnson), has so clearly laid out, there has been frustration among...

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The right hon. Member is absolutely correct to point that out. From reading some of the reports of the independent chief inspector, it is very clear that that policy has all but been abandoned. People have lost the sense that they are dealing with actual human beings —with stories, with dignity, with a past and a future—and that these things have been completely lost all together. People...

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely correct, and that entirely flips on its head the Government’s argument that asylum seekers are some kind of burden. Many have skills that they wish to bring to the workforce and many have things they wish to contribute; they want to say thank you for being given sanctuary. They have a lot to offer the UK, but the UK Government are not interested and do...

Extremism Definition and Community Engagement (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I wish Ramadan Mubarak to everybody who is marking this significant month in the Islamic calendar. Friday is International Day to Combat Islamophobia, but Muslims are afraid to speak out, lest they be targeted for their beliefs or, indeed, labelled as extremists. The Government’s independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, Jonathan Hall, has said that their proposal “could undermine...

Business of the House (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Can we have a debate in Government time on the urgent need for an employment Bill, particularly to protect those on very precarious app-based contracts? I have had several taxi drivers and delivery drivers off-boarded by Uber and Just Eat, but they do not seem to have any recourse to complaint, despite its affecting their employment prospects and their incomes. The Government need to do an...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Lidl has become the first supermarket to roll out a deposit return scheme across the whole city of Glasgow. Will the Secretary of State commend Lidl on doing what he blocked the Scottish Government from rolling out across Scotland?

Finance Bill: Money: Finance (No. 2) Bill (12 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. I am a big believer in honesty, and that I should correct my mistakes should I make one. In yesterday’s Budget debate I said that 222,000 families are affected by the two-child limit. I failed to read my own handwriting properly—the House of Commons Library briefing confirms that as of April 2023, 422,000 families are affected by the two-child...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (11 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I will touch first on arts funding. As a Member of Parliament who has a number of arts institutions based in my Glasgow Central constituency, I gently welcome the theatre, orchestra, museums and galleries exhibition tax relief. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has said that the relief “ensures the RSNO remains committed to serving Scotland’s communities, concert halls and schools.”...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (11 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The right hon. Gentleman is all for families staying together. What impact does he think raising the minimum visa thresholds will have?

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Churches (11 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the article by the former Secretary of State for the Home Department, the Rt hon. Member for Fareham, entitled Too many churches are facilitating bogus asylum claims. This must stop, published by the Telegraph on 3 February 2024, whether his Department holds evidence of churches facilitating high levels of false asylum...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: Appeals ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when he plans implement the decision of case HU/00830/2021, served to his Department on 26 June 2023.

Health and Social Care: Healthcare for Women ( 5 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Amma Birth Companions has just been recognised in the 2024 GSK IMPACT awards. The charity is doing really important work to support vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees who would otherwise face giving birth alone. Will the Secretary of State meet the charity to discuss its work and research, given the disparities that continue for this group of women?

Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration ( 4 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I thank David Neal for his work. Nobody can doubt that he was an independent chief inspector of borders and immigration, and his reports bear testament to that work. He called out the Home Office for being particularly poor at communication, and for its data being “inexcusably awful.” In relation to Border Force, he highlighted “basic stuff not being done”. He shone a bright light on...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Community Ownership Fund ( 4 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The Citizens theatre in Glasgow is a much-beloved institution and has been undergoing refurbishment for several years. It has had a range of funding from Glasgow City Council, the Scottish Government and Historic Environment Scotland, but, due to inflation and various measures, it still requires additional funding to make up the balance and complete its really significant refurbishment...

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Foreign Investment in UK ( 1 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when he plans to publish the review into the Tier 1 investor visa route.

Ukraine (28 Chw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Sky News recently reported on sanctions evasion and things being moved via Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Uzbekistan to support Putin’s war machine, which I suggest is facilitated more often than not by professional enablers right here in the UK through the use of shell companies, limited liability partnerships and Scottish limited partnerships. I have been banging on about that for years. The...
