Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 178 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I very much thank all noble Lords for participating in this debate. In particular, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, and the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Craig of Radley, for their amendments. Before I start, the noble Lord, Lord Alton, alluded to the fact that I have some experience in Hong Kong. I must declare an interest: I have marched to that pipe band. In fact, my noble friend Lord...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 178 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The noble Viscount raises an extremely important point, but that is a matter for the consultation. I stress that it will be published soon—I promise.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175ZB (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I thank the three noble Lords who have taken part in this debate. I should note for the record that I do not see the opposers of Clauses 76 and 77 in the Chamber, but I will carry on. The Government are committed to making the immigration and asylum system more efficient, while also maintaining fairness, ensuring access to justice and upholding the rule of law. Representatives and...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175ZB (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: It will not surprise the noble Lord that I will have to write to him with those details, if I can get them; I do not have them.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175ZB (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: To encourage increased consideration of whether to make costs orders, Clause 77 provides a duty on the Tribunal Procedure Committee to introduce tribunal procedure rules in the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, which will lead to judges more regularly considering whether to make a wasted costs order, an unreasonable costs order or a tribunal costs order under the new Clause 76 provision. That...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I completely agree with my noble friend: obviously it is important to have well-established protocols in place if such a thing happens. I can assure noble Lords that the Home Office will ensure that passengers are not disproportionately impacted or prevented travelling to the UK. As is already set out in Clause 72, we will not penalise carriers where, due to a Home Office systems outage, it...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175ZB (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I thank both Members of the Committee for their remarks. Schedule 7 examinations have been instrumental in securing evidence to convict terrorists, yielding intelligence to detect terrorist threats and supporting the disruption or deterrence of terrorist activity. Currently, officers may exercise Schedule 7 powers only when an individual is located within a port or border area as defined in...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I thank noble Lords very much for participating in this short but powerful debate. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie of Downpatrick, and second the point of view of the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, that you bring—I said “you” again; I am very sorry—an interesting and unusual perspective to this debate. I thank her for that. In answer to the noble Baroness’s question...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I thank the noble Baroness for that intervention. I am going to come on to a number of those points subsequently. In terms of cost, I am told it will be competitive with international norms. I have just referred to the ESTA programme in the States. I looked that up this morning in anticipation of this, and it is currently $14, so it is not overwhelming. In terms of the enforcement, which I...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I thank the noble Viscount—sort of. There will be no hard border. As I said, there is not going to be a hard border in Northern Ireland, and within the CTA there is effectively no change. In answer to the point made by the noble Baroness, Lady Suttie, about enforcement, which was brought up subsequently as well, I have said it three or four times now: there will be no routine border...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 175 (10 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I completely understand the point that the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, is making. I promise him that I am sticking very closely to the script. I am well aware of that. I think I have dealt with most of the questions, albeit probably not to noble Lords’ satisfaction. What I cannot do, I am afraid, is commit to coming back on Report with anything, but obviously I am going to reflect very...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 46 ( 1 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I think that my noble friend might be speaking to the next group of amendments.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 37 ( 1 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The noble and learned Lord has an amendment and he wishes to speak to it.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 36 ( 1 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I will take that as an invitation. Thank you very much indeed. I will try not to be a nightmare.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 36 ( 1 Chw 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I thank all noble Lords who participated in this wide-ranging and powerful debate. We did perhaps stray slightly off the subject of the amendments, and some of the debate has bled into the next group and was, I suppose, more philosophical, about the Bill in general. I will confine my remarks to the amendments, if I may, because I know that many of the matters debated will come up again—not...

Digital Economy Act 2017 (Commencement of Part 3) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (28 Ion 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I apologise for my slightly tardy arrival this morning. I join others in thanking the noble Lord, Lord Morrow, for introducing this Bill, and thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this very powerful debate. I acknowledge the valuable work done by the Joint Committee scrutinising the draft online safety Bill, and in particular the noble Baroness, Lady Kidron. It is clear how...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (27 Ion 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: Of course I accept the distinction. There is no arguing about that at all. The noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, raised the point that the provisions in this Bill are about righting historical wrongs, and I assure the Committee that it remains our intention to continue to adopt the approach of not charging fees in instances where unfairness or injustice has occurred. But as I tried to outline...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (27 Ion 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: If we were to remove or amend fees during the passage of this Bill—I have said this before—it would undermine the existing legal framework, without proper consideration of the sustainability of the system.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (27 Ion 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, that it is a lot of money is not in dispute. I am coming to the part that deals with the various reviews and the High Court judgment, so I hope the noble Lord will bear with me for a second. I think this will address his other questions. Amendment 13 was put forward by the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham and the noble Lord, Lord Alton of...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (27 Ion 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I assure the noble Baroness that I am not going to try it again today. Proposed new subsection (4) would require the Secretary of State to take steps to raise awareness of rights under the British Nationality Act 1981 to be registered as a British citizen or British Overseas Territories citizen among people possessing those rights. The Government publish information about becoming a British...
