Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Children (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Home Office does not hold data on diagnoses of malnutrition in the asylum seeking population. Asylum seekers in contingency accommodation are provided with breakfast, lunch, and evening meals, with a choice of at least one hot and one cold selection, at least one vegetarian option with each main meal and a food service for babies and small children with the appropriate foodstuffs.

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Afghanistan (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Since the launch of the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (ARAP) scheme in April 2021, we have received over 141,000 applications, and have relocated over 12,200 eligible individuals and their family members to safety in the UK. We are unable to breakdown our figures by specific job role. We are committed to improving and speeding up processing times for family reunion applications. We...

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Afghanistan (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Since 2015, just over half a million people were offered safe and legal routes into the UK. This includes those from country-specific schemes from Hong Kong, Syria, Afghanistan, and Ukraine, in addition to global routes through the UNHCR and family reunion schemes. There are a number of complex issues that can impact how swiftly individuals can relocate to the UK, and as such, individual...

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Children (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: UASC hotels are temporary accommodation that provide safeguarding for a child until they are ready to be transferred through the National Transfer Scheme (NTS) from an entry local authority to another local authority in the UK for ongoing care and support. We take the safety of those in our care seriously. We have robust safeguarding procedures in place to ensure all young people in...

Written Answers — Home Office: Migrants: Domestic Abuse (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: A Migrant Victims Protocol is being established. This will provide an assurance to individuals that no immigration enforcement action will be taken whilst criminal justice proceedings concerning allegations of domestic violence are ongoing and/or whilst support to make applications to regularise their stay is being sought. Representatives of the domestic abuse sector have rejected the...

Written Answers — Home Office: Undocumented Migrants: English Channel (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The data requested cannot be provided as it comes from live operational databases that have not been quality assured. All asylum seekers, including children, have an interview on arrival in the UK which includes a series of questions specifically designed to understand whether there are any potential indicators of trafficking. A referral is made to the National Referral Mechanism if...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Hong Kong (27 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The UK has a proud history of providing protection to those who need it. All asylum claims are considered on a case-by-case basis in line with published policy including those raised by Hong Kong nationals.

Written Answers — Home Office: British National (Overseas): Hong Kong (27 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Home Office is increasing application fees across a range of immigration and nationality routes, including for people coming to live, work and study in the UK. Increasing application fees, together with the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS), in this way could raise more than £1 billion, helping to fund vital services and allowing wider funding to be prioritised for public sector pay...

Written Answers — Home Office: Migrant Workers: Digital Technology (26 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: For the UK to become a science and tech superpower, it is vital that we are able to attract and retain top talent from across the globe. The race to attract the brightest and best, mobile and desirable digital talent is fierce, with many countries seeking to improve their attractiveness to this highly prized cohort. As well as nurturing homegrown talent and harnessing the unique skills base...

Police Act 1997 (Criminal Record Certificates: Relevant Matter) (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2023 - Motion to Approve (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: On behalf of my noble friend Lord Sharpe of Epsom, I beg to move the Motion standing in his name on the Order Paper. Motion agreed.

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, the United Kingdom is, and will continue to be, an attractive destination for top international talent in these fields. Our visa and immigration system has been designed to support, and is supporting, all areas of the United Kingdom’s thriving and expanding creative and cultural industries. It is a very generous, adaptive and flexible proposition from the department.

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid that I do not accept the noble Baroness’s proposition that we are, in some way, limiting access to the United Kingdom for creative workers. As I alluded to in my Answer, our domestic law allows musicians, entertainers, artists and their technical staff from non-visa national countries, such as EU member states, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, to perform in the UK...

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I regret that I did not hear the beginning of the noble Baroness’s question. How is that connected to the creative visa schemes?

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid that I still do not follow the noble Baroness’s question, but I reassure her that we will bring forward a further fees order in the autumn. No doubt she will ask further questions then, but I reassure her that visa fees are carefully studied by the department. It is vital that they appropriately reflect the cost of running the visa scheme.

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: As I have already said, we are proud of the fact that we have a very generous offer to those coming into the UK for creative purposes. We hope that other countries will reciprocate. I reassure the noble Earl that we have spoken to every EU member state about the issues facing our creative and cultural industries. From these discussions, 20 member states of the EU have confirmed that they...

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: DCMS recently published its Creative Industries Sector Vision, which was published in June and has been developed in partnership between the Government and industry. It is a vision for creative industries to become an even greater growth engine, where creative talent from all backgrounds and creative businesses from all areas of the United Kingdom can thrive.

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I agree with virtually everything the noble Baroness said. I reassure her that we remain committed to expanding our YMSs—youth mobility schemes—to more nations, including, but not limited to, those within the EU. Those youth mobility schemes provide cultural exchange programmes, to allow a person aged between 18 and 30 from participating countries and territories to experience life in the...

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I reassure the noble Lord that the visa system is operating within the service standard in every sector, so there is no delay in creative visas being awarded to those who apply. The system works well. I simply do not recognise the account that he gives; if he has any particular cases, I would be grateful if he would write to me, and I can look into them.

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid, timid as I am to disagree with my noble friend, that is just wrong. There are no issues here. In 2022, we issued 6,498 creative worker visas, of which 180 were issued to EEA nationals. Over the last decade, the number of creative visas issued has remained consistently high compared to other temporary work routes, such as the charity and religious worker visa routes. While the...

Creative and Cultural Industries: Impact of Visa and Immigration Policies - Question (25 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, the answer is no.
