Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, tempted though I am to engage with the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, on that very interesting philosophical question, that might be beyond the ambit of this particular amendment. I will speak in particular to Amendment 33, which I oppose because it has no purpose. I remind the Committee that Section 4 of the Human Rights Act provides to the courts, at High Court level and above, a power to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I will give way to the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, in a second. The very idea that, in some way, the argument would be better achieved by accelerating the process is simply mistaken, not least because Section 10 says that the declaration of incompatibility can take effect only following the conclusion of the final appeal and confirmation by the parties that that is so. That is likely to...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I find it a little odd for the noble Baroness to say that she is criticising the Government for disapplying various provisions of the Human Rights Act, yet criticising us for not, as it were, expressly disapplying Section 4. As we have heard, the reason for not disapplying Section 4 is clear; namely, it demonstrates that the Government are complying with their obligations on the international...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid that the amendment still has no purpose. The point is, as I hope I demonstrated to your Lordships’ Committee, that the decision as to whether and how to act on a declaration of incompatibility is clearly set out in the Human Rights Act, and it rests with a Minister of the Crown. This Parliament does not have a role other than to consider, under the procedure for a remedial...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The noble Baroness appears to suggest that, because the Bill disapplies Section 6, local authorities would be obliged to act or could act in a manner that was unlawful. She ignores the fact that, from the British accession to the European Convention on Human Rights until 1998, our domestic bodies were still deemed to be a part of the United Kingdom state, which obviously had an international...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 9 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: A moment ago we heard the noble Lord read out the list of the international conventions set out in Clause 1(6), as though in some way it would disapply them domestically. That is clearly not the effect of the drafting. All Clause 1(6) does is define what the term “international law” means in other places in this statute. It is just a definition clause, so I am unsure why the noble Lord...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 9 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 9 and 13. I obviously have the greatest respect for my noble friend Lord Hailsham and the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, but let us look at the two subsections whose removal they called for at the beginning of the debate. Clause 1(4) says: “It is recognised that … the Parliament of the United Kingdom is sovereign, and … the validity of an Act is...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 6 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I thank the noble Lord for giving way. Does he agree that the divisional court in the Rwanda proceedings upheld the principle of remote, third-country processing—that it was lawful in UK law—and that decision was upheld in the Court of Appeal and was not appealed further to the Supreme Court? So I think the noble Lord would agree that it is unquestionably and entirely lawful.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I thank the noble Lord for giving way. He has said repeatedly that the Supreme Court has held as a fact that Rwanda is an unsafe country. If one looks at the judgment of the Supreme Court, in paragraph 105 the noble Lord will see that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Reed, the president of the Supreme Court, said that Rwanda was unsafe at the time that the Divisional Court was considering the...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Is it not right that Clause 4 of the Bill provides exclusively that members of the judiciary will have the opportunity to consider challenges brought of an individual nature in relation to a particular claimant?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, in the absence of an immediate returns agreement with France, for which there seems little appetite, it is only by delivering the Rwanda scheme that the Government can achieve the deterrent effect necessary to prevent migrants from attempting to enter the United Kingdom by dangerous and illegal means. In the brief time available to me, I shall focus on two matters that have been the...

Immigration Detention: Brook House Inquiry - Question (11 Ion 2024)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, alluded to the fact that, in the case of those on bail, their detention is regulated by custody time limits. Will my noble friend the Minister agree that, in the case of immigration detention, it should always be regulated by the Hardial Singh principles, enunciated by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, and as reflected by the recent and...

Justification Decision (Scientific Age Imaging) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Perhaps the noble Lord can explain why scientific methods are used to assess age in, among other countries, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, the Home Office’s sponsor licence system places clear and binding requirements and obligations on employers, including paying the required salary, looking to recruit and manage overseas employees across all sectors, including care. Should an employer be found in breach of these requirements, we will swiftly take action and can remove its ability to recruit from overseas.

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The rules provide that care workers must be paid at least £20,960 per annum, not lower than £10.75 per hour based on a 37.5 hour working week. The Government do not tolerate illegal activity in the labour market. Any accusations of illegal employment practices will be thoroughly investigated, and it goes without saying that we strongly condemn the offering of health and care worker visas...

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Yes, I reassure the noble Lord that the Home Office works very closely with the Department of Health and Social Care on ensuring the safety and security of those who come to work here on visas and of those for whom they care.

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I reassure the noble Baroness that migrant workers are able to seek alternative employment in the event that their initial placement is unsatisfactory for the reasons that she outlines, provided that they have a job offer from a Home Office-approved sponsor—which of course stands to reason. They can make a new application for a further visa in those circumstances.

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: As I said, the Home Office works closely with the Department of Health and Social Care in relation to the requirement for those working in the health and social care sectors—and there is a lot in what the noble Lord says.

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I reassure the noble and right reverend Lord that, since 1 July 2022, 87 sponsor licences have been revoked and 32 suspended pending further investigation.

Certificate of Sponsorship: Foreign Health and Care Workers - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Home Office is aware that abuses exist. I reassure the noble Lord that the sponsor licence system places clear and binding requirements and obligations on employers looking to recruit. The Department of Health and Social Care has published guidance on applying for jobs from abroad, as part of a wider effort to address its concerns about exploitive recruitment and employment practices....
