Lord Sharpe of Epsom: Both the Illegal Migration Act 2023 and the Safety of Rwanda Act 2024 aim to put a stop to illegal migration into the UK by removing the incentive to make dangerous small boat crossings.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Democratic Republic of Congo (17 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: Anyone in the UK illegally, including those who arrived through illegal, dangerous, and unnecessary means, may be in scope for removal to Rwanda.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Republic of Ireland (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: There is a high level of cooperation on migration and border security between the UK and Irish Government. The Home Office regularly discuss asylum trends and work to respond to these trends with our counterparts in the Department of Justice in order to protect the Common Travel Area. In 2020, we agreed non-legally binding operational arrangements which allow for the return and readmission of...

Written Answers — Home Office: Councillors: Harassment (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The safety of our elected representatives is essential to the security of our country. All elected representatives should be able to participate fully in our democracy, without fear for their safety and security. Instances of abuse, intimidation and criminal offences are unacceptable, and that is why the Government will take every possible step to safeguard the people, processes, and...

Written Answers — Home Office: Forced Marriage: British Nationality (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: Since April 2019, police forces in England and Wales have been required to provide quarterly data returns to the Home Office on so-called ‘honour’-based abuse offences, including forced marriage. The most recent data show 172 forced marriage related offences recorded in the year ending March 2023. In addition, the joint Home Office and Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office Forced...

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Married People and Overseas Students (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The Home Office publishes data on how people move through the immigration system in the Migrant Journey report. The report contains information on the number of people starting a journey each year broken down by immigration route (e.g. study) and how many extend into other categories (e.g. family) at the end of each year, following their initial leave. The latest report covers up to the end...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Republic of Ireland (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The Home Office has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Irish Department of Justice for information sharing to preserve and enhance the operation of the Common Travel Area. This enables data sharing about asylum seekers. In addition to this, in 2020 we agreed operational arrangements which allow for the return and readmission of asylum seekers where this is agreed by both...

Written Answers — Home Office: Animal Experiments: Animal Welfare (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The Home Office takes non-compliance with the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 very seriously. The Animals in Science Regulation Unit responds to and applies sanctions in cases of non-compliance in accordance with its compliance policy, which aims to reduce the risk of future non-compliance. More rigorous sanctions are used in cases where animal welfare is impacted or there are...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: EU Countries (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: There have been no returns from the EU to the UK.

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I start by expressing the Government’s disappointment at this judgment. We continue to believe that the policy is lawful, that our approach is compatible with international law and, specifically, that the Illegal Migration Act proposals are compatible with Article 2 of the Windsor Framework. The Government will take all steps to defend their position, including through an appeal....

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I have made it very clear—but I will say it again—that all the provisions in the Belfast/Good Friday agreement referred to in the Windsor Framework were developed specifically against the background of Northern Ireland’s unique circumstances. They do not concern, and should not be brought into, the complex debate on illegal migration.

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The noble Lord makes the very good point that immigration is a reserved matter and that the Government have consistently applied immigration law on a UK-wide basis. This judgment relates to the Illegal Migration Act, so it does not impact our planning or operations for Rwanda. I am afraid that I cannot speculate as to the other matters that he raised.

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, as I stated in my original Answer, which I will repeat to my noble friend, the Government intend to take all steps to defend their position, including through an appeal. Of course, these are the matters that will be debated in that appeal.

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, again, I was very clear at the start; we have consistently made it clear that the provisions in the Good Friday agreement, referred to in the Windsor Framework, were developed specifically against the background of Northern Ireland’s unique circumstances. That position has not changed.

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I would go back to my original answer of last week: I still do not think it is appropriate to comment on the internal policies of another country. As I have repeatedly said—and as I will continue to say as often as I am asked—the Government will take all steps to defend their position, including through an appeal. I would also say that this is not about prioritising one part of...

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, obviously the Government are still seeking advice on all aspects of what the judgment means, but we will be appealing. I should also say that the final order will not be handed down for another two weeks, so an appeal cannot be lodged until after that final order is handed down.

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: No, I do not believe they are. I do not think this has any impact on, for example, the safety of Rwanda or relocation to Rwanda under existing legislation. As noble Lords will be aware, migrants currently in Northern Ireland can be relocated under the NABA.
