Illegal Migration Update - Statement ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I thank the noble Baroness for that remark. She is absolutely right: the Belgians are doing an excellent job. The Belgians, in contradistinction to the approach taken by the French authorities, stop the boats when they are in the water and return them to the shore, rather than the approach adopted by the French authorities, which is that they are unable to interfere once the boats have...

Illegal Migration Update - Statement ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I have already answered that question. I am afraid I simply do not accept the noble Baroness’s point that there is conflict between the answer I gave to the noble Lord, Lord Howard, and the answer I gave to the noble Lord, Lord Scriven. The point is this: certain categories of data are simply not collected and this falls into that category. Lots of data is held, as it will not surprise the...

Illegal Migration Update - Statement ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: As I have already made clear, the data requested on a child in hotels could not be provided as it comes from operational databases that have not been quality assured. Sitting suspended.

Illegal Migration Update - Statement ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, I am grateful to both noble Lords for their questions. It is apparent that I would refute the allegation from the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, that, in any sense, the illegal migration update did not reveal a sensible and competent approach. I will remind the House of the six points contained in the Statement. The first was the agreement we have recently struck with Turkey to take...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: We committed to increase our headcount to 2,500 decision-makers. As of 1 September, we have met that commitment. We have taken immediate action to speed up asylum processing while maintaining the integrity of the system. The streamlined asylum process plays an important role in achieving that. We are on track to clear the legacy asylum backlog by the end of 2023. It is presently down by more...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I can reassure the noble Earl that we are very much committed to the efficient dispatch of the consideration of asylum claims. There were 78,768 asylum applications in the year ending June 2023, which is higher than at any time since the European migration crisis. The asylum backlog is high because there are so many applications. We entirely appreciate the point the noble Earl makes—that...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My noble friend is entirely right that one of the keys to the asylum process is to remove those whose asylum applications are refused, but in some cases some countries are difficult about taking back their citizens. The Government take very seriously their obligations to seek to negotiate an improvement in those situations. An example of that being very successfully achieved was in relation...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I do not recognise any of the items raised by the noble Baroness. I can reassure her that there will be no such apologies.

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I am afraid the Government do not accept any lessons in handling the asylum backlog from the Labour Party, which resolved the issues in relation to its own asylum backlog by granting an asylum amnesty. That is not something we propose to do. The Government have addressed the problem by taking concrete steps, including the streamlined asylum processing model. This concentrates facilities on...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I rather agree with the noble Lord. The Government’s policy is to reduce expenditure on hotels, which will free up more government money to be spent on overseas aid. I can reassure the noble Lord, the House having passed the Illegal Migration Act, that one of its consequences is that those in the cohort covered by Section 2 will not be able to make asylum claims. As a result, they will not...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: No is the short answer. The Home Office is committed to ensuring that the asylum system is not open to abuse. By promptly withdrawing asylum claims from non-compliant individuals, we are ensuring that decision-making resources are concentrated on those who genuinely wish to continue with their asylum claims within the UK. Asylum seekers can withdraw their claim, should they no longer wish to...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: I have not seen the article to which the noble Lord refers. I will of course look at it and reply to him in due course.

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The GOV.UK website contains detailed guidance on circumstances in which a claim will be withdrawn or deemed withdrawn, including a timescale. I do not believe, although I do not have the facts before me, that there is a concrete deadline after which a claim may not be restored, but I will check that and revert to the right reverend Prelate in relation to it.

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: Clearly, as the noble Lord knows, it is a priority for the Government to reduce and eliminate the use of hotels. If people have successfully claimed asylum, the position is that they should no longer reside in Home Office accommodation and that they become the responsibility of the local authority. This is a well-known procedure and has been in place for a long time. I do not believe that...

Written Answers — Home Office: British Nationality: Assessments ( 8 Aws 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: We are still considering the timetable for potential work to review the handbook. We aim to set out the timetable for reviewing the handbook later this year.

Written Answers — Home Office: Agriculture: Seasonal Workers (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Home Office publishes data on Seasonal Worker visas by nationality in the ‘Immigration Statistics Quarterly Release’. Data on the outcomes of Seasonal Worker visas are published in table ‘Vis_D02’ of the detailed entry clearance visas dataset. Selecting ‘Seasonal Worker (previously Tier 5)’ from the visa type subgroup filter will output data on Seasonal Worker visas....

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The Home Office publishes the following data on gov.uk: Data on visas granted are published in table Vis_D02 of the ‘Immigration System Statistics release’. These statistics refer to the number of visas granted, and do not necessarily reflect the number of arrivals from long-term immigrants. Data on asylum seekers and refugees resettled in the UK can be found in tables Asy_D01 and Asy_D02...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration Controls: EU Countries (31 Gor 2023)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: The EU Justice and Home Affairs Committee will meet on 19th October to agree a timeline for EES and ETIAS implementation. HMG are working towards EES implementation in late 2024. ETIAS was originally expected to go live six months after EES, but we await confirmation of this in October. The Government is engaging both the European Commission and French Government through officials holding...

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

Lord Murray of Blidworth: In 2021 the Government awarded the charity Southall Black Sisters £1.4 million to run the Support for Migrant Victims (SMV) Scheme pilot. This was following the Government’s review (in 2020) of its response to migrant victims who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF). This funding has now been extended until March 2025. The independent evaluation of the SMV Scheme considered the...

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. Food is...
