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

Alison Thewliss: ...are. It is telling that so many people will come by small boats because they cannot rely on UK Government schemes to get them here safely. The Bill is full of contradictions: it is a deterrent, but Rwanda is also safe; it undermines our own obligations internationally and our domestic courts while telling Rwanda that it must keep to its obligations; it is not tough enough for the far-right...

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

Alison Thewliss: I will make a little progress, because I am mindful of what Mr Deputy Speaker said about time. I want to touch on the misinformation that the Minister put forward about Rwanda and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The transit agreements are not the same at all as people being permanently relocated to Rwanda. The UNHCR has mentioned that Norway, Sweden, Canada, France,...

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

Alison Thewliss: ...Committees of this House to ascertain whether that is entirely the case. The Committee that my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Edinburgh South West (Joanna Cherry) is on has been to visit Rwanda, and she has information about that visit that she hopes to share with the House. I understand that the hon. Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Dr Johnson) was on that trip, too, but...

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

Alison Thewliss: ...Deputy Speaker, and I should like to make some progress. In Lords amendment 4, Lord Anderson of Ipswich proposes to add to the words “Every decision-maker must conclusively treat the Republic of Rwanda as a safe country” the words “unless presented with credible evidence to the contrary”. I agree that evidence is important. If judges and other decision makers are not allowed to...

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

Alison Thewliss: ...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: ...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 Secretary of State must lay before Parliament a statement”. Again, that...

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...

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ..., which it itself commissioned, that were found to be significantly cheaper, more effective and with much better health outcomes for those in that system. It is no secret that the SNP thinks the Rwanda scheme is irredeemably awful. It is unworkable, conspicuous punishment. The Supreme Court has found the scheme to be unlawful. On top of all that, it is of course eye- wateringly expensive....

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ...sad. The Migration Observatory at the University of Oxford has suggested that a value for money assessment should take account of asylum seekers who are neither deterred from coming nor removed to Rwanda, because they are now left in a limbo of the Home Office’s own making. They cannot have their asylum claim processed nor in most cases be removed to their home country because of the...

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

Alison Thewliss: ...as people have committed suicide in asylum accommodation. Small boats are all the more critical given the tragic loss of a seven-year-old wee girl just this week. On high-performance visas, on Rwanda, on Georgia and on age assessment, what will happen to the work plan that the chief inspector set out, and to the staff—expert inspectors—who are in place to deliver it? Will David...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (17 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The front page of this tawdry, pathetic piece of unworkable legislation says, in the name of the Home Secretary: “I am unable to make a statement that, in my view, the provisions of the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill are compatible with the Convention rights, but the Government nevertheless wishes the House to proceed with the Bill.” It is another illegal Bill that will...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 3 - Disapplication of the Human Rights Act 1998 (17 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ...this Government think they have a right to gie them. Disapplying section 6 removes the obligation for courts and immigration officials to take into account human rights when assessing the safety of Rwanda. Disapplying section 3 limits the protections that courts can provide. Disapplying section 2 forces courts to ignore any European Court of Human Rights rulings of Rwanda as unsafe. Those...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ...coming up before we know it. The UNHCR does not buy the Government’s assurances. It has been very clear that nothing that has been said or done has changed the situation. The UNHCR says that the Rwanda partnership treaty is not compatible with international refugee law, and that we cannot declare Rwanda a safe country in perpetuity. I do not believe that we should be declaring any...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ...had on the people it deals with, and told me about a Kurdish client who fled Iran under a death sentence from the Iranian Government. On arriving in the UK, he was issued with a removal notice to Rwanda. He said: “The reason I came to England was that I knew I will be safe in the UK, and also, I was trapped by the smugglers…When I received the news”— that he would be sent to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman would like to come along to listen to Olivia Ndoti and the women at the Women’s Integration Network in Glasgow. Perhaps he will hear from people from Rwanda—this Government grant asylum to people from Rwanda, because their country is not safe. I do not believe that anyone who supports this awful Bill can do so knowing the people it will affect. It is laid...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ...things are unsafe. This amendment highlights the illogicality of this Bill. These things should not be legislated on at all. The hon. Gentleman mentions the Libyans who are being transited through Rwanda. They are not settling in Rwanda; they are being transited through Rwanda to other countries such as Canada.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: ...some progress. The hon. Gentleman will be able to contribute later on. I wish to touch on what the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said about this. It has reviewed the updated UK-Rwanda scheme and it says: “It maintains its position that the arrangement, as now articulated in the UK-Rwanda Partnership Treaty and accompanying legislative scheme, does not meet the...

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: .... It is stranger still that that persists because, as we in this place know, all policies come through the Treasury. The Prime Minister himself apparently voiced concerns regarding the cost of the Rwanda policy during his time as Chancellor. It was reported that he wished “to pursue smaller volumes initially, 500 instead of 1,500” in the first year of the scheme, and “3,000 instead...

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.
