Animal Welfare (Livestock Exports) Bill: Clause 1 - Prohibition of export of livestock for slaughter (15 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: My hon. Friend is making some excellent points about how long it has taken to get to this stage. Does he share the concern of many of my constituents that the Government do not seem to be treating animal welfare with any great priority, given the way in which they have treated the Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill?

Home Department: Legal Migration Rules (15 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The Home Office’s knee-jerk policy to raise the threshold and its sudden partial reverse ferret to bring it slightly back down again caused a huge amount of distress to people up and down these islands who now do not know what the future holds for them and their families. What equality impact assessment has been carried out on the policy which, as well as affecting Scotland, will...

Home Department: Legal Migration Rules (15 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: That does not answer the question that I put to the Minister at all. What equality impact assessment has been carried out on this policy? What recognition of wage levels in Scotland has there been in relation to the policy? He cannot tell me. One of my constituents tells me that they are worried about their spouse, who works as a legal administrator, coming over from Australia. Also, a man is...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill (10 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I oppose this anti-boycott Bill on several points. It is difficult to see its timing as anything other than a cynical move by the UK Government. The Secretary of State talks about support for community cohesion and a peaceful two-state solution, but this Bill does nothing to achieve either. Instead, it will seriously curtail our civil liberties and undermine devolution. If the volume of...

Afghanistan: UK Government Policy — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (10 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I am glad that the right hon. Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood) has secured this afternoon’s debate, because it has given us all the opportunity to raise our concerns about the ongoing situation in Afghanistan. He mentioned his comments of last year. I do not doubt that he has reflected carefully upon that, but I want him to know that many of my constituents and Afghan friends in...

Afghanistan: UK Government Policy — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (10 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I do, and I understand where that comes from. I also understand that we can say or do things that we later come to reflect and change our mind on and regret. In politics, we should be allowed to say we have made a mistake or changed our mind. There should be space for that, but I had comments at the time from my constituents about this, and they felt it very deeply indeed. It is important...

Afghanistan: UK Government Policy — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (10 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: We absolutely can. The Homes for Ukraine scheme shows what can be done in a pinch when there is an emergency, but nothing has been done to the same extent for the people of Afghanistan. For many people, there is not a simple route to come to safety in the UK. I have people who find that the very strict criteria for family reunion do not allow them to come. They have been told that they are...

Post Office Horizon Scandal (10 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: One sinister feature of this scandal has been how the Post Office has tried to intimidate and scare people into compliance. While researching this, I read that those receiving an historic shortfall scheme offer had been erroneously told by the Post Office that they were not allowed to talk about the terms of their compensation. The Post Office had no right to do that, but there will be a...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I’m resigning!

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I would like to put on the record yet again that the SNP wholeheartedly opposes the principle of the Rwanda plan, of offshoring people as if they were some kind of tiresome trash that the UK does not want to deal with—a plan that amounts simply to state-sponsored people trafficking. It is not just about the money, as Labour set out in its motion today, as egregious and obscene a waste of...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I would like to make some progress because, as Mr Deputy Speaker said, we are quite short of time. To take Afghanistan as example, 6 million Afghans have been classed by UNHCR as refugees, of whom 91% have stayed in neighbouring countries, with 3.5 million in Iran and just over 2 million in Pakistan. There are 239,600 in Germany, 71,200 in France and just 12,200 in the UK—a mere 0.2% of the...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I have just made the point that, of those 110 million people, a very tiny proportion actually come here. I also point out to the hon. Member that putting a specific numbered cap on things has not worked either. I remember the Government saying they were going to get net migration down to the tens of thousands, and that has not worked out. So numbers are not worth speaking about in this...

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Sudan (20 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many and what proportion of visas submitted to the Visa Application Centre in Khartoum before its closure in April have not been processed.

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas (19 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will make an assessment of the potential impact of introducing a humanitarian travel visa on the level of small boat crossings.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Deportation and Temporary Accommodation (19 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the Written Statement of 6 December 2023 on Signing of the Rwanda Treaty [HCWS101], what his timescale is for beginning relocation of asylum seekers to Rwanda; and what plans he has for accommodating asylum seekers who are not relocated to Rwanda in the next five years.

Written Answers — Home Office: Biometric Residence Permits (18 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many biometric residence cards were reprinted due to errors on those cards in each of the last seven years.

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Overseas Students (18 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many student visa applications have been withdrawn in each of the past five years.

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Standards (18 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will list (a) the visa categories for which the average processing time was longer than the agreed customer service standard and (b) the number of people waiting for their visa application to be processed in each of those categories on 13 December 2023.

Afghan Resettlement Update (13 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Afghanistan fell to the Taliban in August 2021, and it should be a source of shame and embarrassment to this Government that we are still talking about bringing people to safety over two years later. A marker of the failure of the ACRS and the ARAP schemes is that it is known that there are 17 Afghans in every small boat in the channel for every one who has come over on those schemes. When...

Afghan Resettlement Update (13 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: indicated dissent.
