Modern Slavery National Referral Mechanism: Waiting Times - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I am afraid that is the first I have heard of it, so I have no opinion on it.

Modern Slavery National Referral Mechanism: Waiting Times - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I go back to an earlier answer I gave, that these are extraordinarily complex cases and, therefore, the guidance has to be refined in light of those cases periodically. I do not know to what specifically the noble Baroness is referring but, as far as I am aware, it does not make it any more complicated.

Written Answers — Home Office: Homelessness: Refugees (10 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: We recognise the number of individuals moving on from the asylum support system is placing pressure on local authorities. The Home Office and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities are working closely on this and have been regularly engaging with local authorities to ensure they are supported. There are a number of improvements in train to ensure local authorities receive...

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Graduates (10 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: We provided the requested data to the Migration Advisory Committee by 26 March 2024.

Inadmissible Asylum Seekers - Question for Short Debate ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord German, and all noble Lords who have contributed to this debate. As noble Lords are aware, the UK has a long and proud tradition of providing safe haven to those who genuinely need our protection, and we remain committed to providing such protection, in accordance with our international obligations. The matter of the Government’s proposed approach to...

Inadmissible Asylum Seekers - Question for Short Debate ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I can reassure the noble Lord that I am coming to a more detailed set of number shortly, if he will bear with me. The safe third country inadmissibility policy is a longstanding process, intended to encourage individuals to claim asylum in the first safe country they reach. That is an established part of international asylum procedures, applied across the EU and explicitly provided for in UK...

Inadmissible Asylum Seekers - Question for Short Debate ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The noble Baroness will be aware that under the provisions of the Illegal Migration Act, a consultation process took place with local councils and authorities to find out what their local capacities are. I believe that consultation process has concluded, but I do not yet know the outcome. That will presumably inform the debate as to the safe and legal routes that may or may not be made...

Inadmissible Asylum Seekers - Question for Short Debate ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I am afraid I do not have that information to hand. I will see whether I can find it, and I commit to write to the noble Lord if I can. I turn to other aspects of the various questions I was asked. The noble Lord, Lord Hussain, asked about individuals who were previously present in a safe third country and entered the UK by a dangerous and unnecessary method. I am afraid that they are liable...

Inadmissible Asylum Seekers - Question for Short Debate ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: With apologies, I did mean to, but for obvious reasons I cannot comment on the internal policies of another country, and I do not think it would be appropriate to do so in this case.

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My Lords, since 2010, overall incidents of crime have come down by 55% on a like-for-like basis. The Government are committed to tackling rural crime. Decisions on deployment of police resources are a matter for chief constables and locally elected police and crime commissioners. However, the Government set up the National Rural Crime Unit to help police secure specialist operational support,...

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My noble friend made a couple of very good points. First, the Equipment Theft (Prevention) Act 2023 was given Royal Assent in July last year. Secondary legislation is needed before it comes into force and work has begun on the necessary regulations, with a view to hearing debates in Parliament in this Session. As noble Lords will be aware, there has been some progress on equipment theft; in...

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: I would of course be very happy to meet the said gentleman. Let me go into the details of the National Rural Crime Unit a little. It was established in January 2023, with a grant of £300,000. It is working and was set up with a significant input from the National Farmers’ Union, as noble Lords will be aware. The unit has made a real difference; Farmers Weekly reported on 25 April: “They...

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: On resources, there are now over 149,000 police officers in England and Wales, which is a higher number than any time before. The Government have also confirmed a total police funding settlement of up to £18.4 billion next year, which is an increase of £842 million. On how the money is spent locally, the noble Lord will be aware that those are very much local decisions, but I hear what he...

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: Again, the noble Lord makes some very good points. As he will be aware, operational decisions are taken locally, so that is a matter for chief constables in conversation and association with their police and crime commissioners. But plenty of national resources are available, as I have already highlighted.

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: That is a very good point. We still have to commence the Equipment Theft (Prevention) Act, as he knows, and a call for evidence went out last summer seeking views on the secondary legislation, as required. That would be the appropriate place for making these points and discussing this. It has been targeted at agricultural and construction sectors—manufacturers, dealers, retailers and so on....

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: First, I commend the right reverend Prelate on his work in introducing the amendment to that particular Bill. It came into force on 1 August 2022 and, without his efforts, I do not think it would have happened. Hare coursing is not a notifiable offence, but the statistics I have are very encouraging. There has been a 60% reduction in the poaching of both hare and deer over the course of the...

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: Well, that was more of a statement than a question and I do not think the Government have abandoned rural young people.

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: My noble friend asks a good question, but the findings of the Captive & Controlled report are not easily replicated, so it is difficult to give him the assurance he seeks that the gap is narrowing. But teams in the Home Office and Defra have sought to understand the additional challenges that victims in rural communities face, and we have invested to help address those. That includes funding...

Rural Crime - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: That may be the case, but there are also lots of good opportunities in the country and, of course, we live in a world where the gig economy gives people opportunities to live pretty much wherever they want.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Housing ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: The Home Office routinely publishes information on a quarterly basis, including on the number of supported asylum seekers in accommodation, all irregular modes of entry into the UK, and the level of returns.
