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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: It is not for the Home Office to regulate the profits made by private companies, and the noble Lord would not expect me to comment on that. I reassure him that the Department of Health and Social Care is sighted on what the appropriate standards should be for those working in the sector, and it works with the Home Office on the grant of sponsor licences for those coming to work in the sector.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Information is certainly available on the GOV.UK website, which is signposted from the health and social care visa pages. There are also NGO bodies, including Care England and the gangmasters licensing authority, and, as the noble Baroness, Lady O’Grady, said, trade unions.

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The noble Baroness will be unsurprised to learn that I do not agree that the state is the answer in the provision of health and social care in the way that she suggests. It is entirely appropriate that private companies can recruit in the way that they presently do, that abuses are stamped out and that the Home Office uses its enforcement powers in the way that it does and will continue to do.

Written Answers — Home Office: Homes for Ukraine Scheme (26 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: In line with the situation in Ukraine, working closely with the Ukrainian Government, as well as our international counterparts, we keep the need for a possible extension of UK sanctuary, beyond March 2025, under consistent review. The UK Government stands with Ukraine and firmly believes that Ukraine will be safe again. When it’s safe to do so, Ukraine will need the repatriation of its...

Written Answers — Home Office: Airports: Racial Discrimination (26 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Border Force cannot comment on behalf of other security and policing authorities at Airports. The Immigration Rules require all arriving passengers to establish their eligibility for admission. Every passenger’s passport or national identity card is checked electronically and there are also times when extra checks are conducted.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Housing (26 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The impact assessment which you have requested is for internal use and is not routinely published. Following the service of an asylum decision, an individual continues to be an asylum seeker for the purpose of asylum support until the end of the relevant prescribed period, also known as the ‘grace period’ or ‘move on period’. This period is 28 calendar days from when an individual is...

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Government are committed to delivering an asylum system that continues to protect individuals from persecution, including that based on sexual orientation and gender identity. At the same time, we remain determined to tackle illegal migration so that we deter individuals from risking their lives making dangerous channel crossings.

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am grateful to the noble Lord for giving me sight of his Question in advance. I can assure noble Lords that the cornerstone of the asylum consideration process remains the requirement to establish a well-founded fear of persecution for a reason set out in Article 1A(2) of the 1951 refugee convention and enshrined in last year’s Nationality and Borders Act. There has been no downgrading...

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Legal advice is certainly an issue we are aware of, and assistance is provided to those making applications. It may be of note to my noble friend that the number of LGB claims in 2022 almost doubled—an 89% increase compared to 2021. Thus, in 2022, 2% of asylum claims in the United Kingdom—1,334 claims—included sexual orientation as part of the basis for the claim. There do not appear to...

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: As the noble Baroness will recall, as part of the structure of the Illegal Migration Act detention forms an important part of the deterrent effect to dissuade people from crossing the channel. Of course, detention should only be done when it is necessary. In these circumstances the Government take the view that it is.

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I do not accept that there is a damaging culture of disbelief. Asylum claims are taken very seriously by the department, as can be seen from the grant rates in asylum cases. We also have a very elaborate appeal structure to independent members of the judiciary, so I do not accept the premise of the noble Baroness’s question.

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am unsure what my noble friend has deduced from the Home Secretary’s speech. She merely observed that the European Court of Human Rights could be more transparent and accountable in how it interprets rights. The Government do not believe that it is necessary to leave the ECHR in order to deliver major priorities such as tackling illegal migration. I can only commend her speech to noble...

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I fear that the noble Lord has not read the Home Secretary’s speech closely enough. She asserted that there exist interpretative shifts away from persecution in favour of discrimination, and from well-founded fear towards a credible or plausible fear, and there may be a need to tighten the definition of who qualifies for protection.

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid that, just like my noble and learned friend Lord Bellamy, I do not know what will be in the King’s Speech, but I will certainly take that point back. The Government remain committed to upholding the rights of LGBT+ people and stand with those around the world facing persecution in relation to their sexuality or gender. No one should be persecuted because of their sexuality or...

Asylum Seekers: Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid that I must disagree with the noble Lord. My right honourable friend the Home Secretary is always admirably clear in her speeches, and there can be no doubt that the issues she discussed in the learned speech she gave in Washington are ones the House should consider closely.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The information requested is not held in a reportable format and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost as it would require a manual trawl of case records to retrieve.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Biometric Residence Permits (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: To reduce the number of people currently accommodated in hotels and other accommodation types, and therefore reduce costs and limit the burden on the taxpayer, we are reliant upon people who are no longer eligible for asylum support leaving the asylum accommodation estate as quickly as possible. This number is increasing due to significant efforts underway to clear the asylum backlog. An...

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Finance and Housing (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: An individual remains eligible for asylum support for a prescribed period from the day they are notified of the decision on their asylum claim. Where someone is given notice that their asylum claim has been granted, their appeal has been allowed or their asylum claim has been refused but they have been given leave to enter or remain, the prescribed period in legislation is 28 days. There has...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Temporary Accommodation (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Asylum seekers in initial accommodation are provided with three meals a day with a choice of at least one hot, one cold selection and a vegetarian option. Babies and small children are also provided with appropriate foodstuffs and can be fed whenever necessary. Options are provided for any asylum seeker with special dietary, cultural or religions requirements where specified. Food service...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Self-harm and Suicide (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Home Office operates a Safeguarding Hub to support vulnerable individuals. Both the Home Office and its accommodation providers have robust processes in place to ensure that where someone is at risk, they are referred to the appropriate statutory agencies of police, NHS, and social services to promote appropriate safeguarding interventions. As well as making safeguarding referrals to the...
