Backbench Business: Repeal of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 (23 October 2014)

Austin Mitchell: ...with the public mood, because the people want influence—they want a say. They feel that MPs are not listening and that we are in it for ourselves. They feel that decisions are being taken on immigration, economic matters and all sorts of things, over which they have no control. They want to be heard. The only effective way of ensuring that they are heard, that I know of, is to have...

Business of the House (23 October 2014)

Peter Bone: ...on the doorstep will be EU migration. The new President of the European Commission has said that the free movement rules cannot be changed. Our Prime Minister has rightly said that we will control immigration from the European Union in the future. Will there be an opportunity on Monday, when the Prime Minister makes his statement, for him to update us on that position?

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Report (2nd Day) (22 October 2014)

The Earl of Listowel: ...should think extremely carefully about these vulnerable young people, who can be so damaged. I am reminded of another example which, again, occurred under a previous Administration—namely, the setting up of Yarl’s Wood immigration removal centre. It was established as a secure centre for children and their parents on the plan of a prison; indeed, it was identical to a prison....

Foreign National Offenders — Statement (22 October 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Lord Paddick: My Lords, the Liberal Democrats want a fair immigration policy; clearly, we believe that foreign criminals who should be deported should not remain in this country. Will the Minister say how many of these dangerous foreign criminals are at large as a result of multiple appeals against deportation, and how many are at large due to Home Office incompetence?

Bob Stewart: ...serious and organised crime. The NCA covers a wide variety of criminality, and we have already heard some aspects of that, but I want to concentrate on the issues of money laundering, drugs, organised immigration crime and human trafficking, and the criminal use of firearms. The single cross-cutting issue that has totally changed the landscape for serious and organised crime is the growth...

Theresa May: ...we face. The countless appeals and re-appeals that have been lodged by criminals attempting to cheat the system cost us all money and are an affront to British justice. That is why we passed the Immigration Act 2014 to clamp down on that abuse. New powers from the Act came into force this week to cut the number of grounds on which criminals can appeal their deportation, from 17 to four,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 October 2014)

David Cameron: My hon. Friend, and the candidate to whom he rightly refers, is absolutely right that we need to get a grip on immigration—wherever it is coming from.

Bosnia and Herzegovina — Question for Short Debate (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Lea of Crondall: ...the mood was changing and that people have to prioritise the main goal, and subsidiary goals have to be seen as subsidiary goals.

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Tom Brake: ...in a prison—for example, a young offenders institution or a hospital. I welcome the very rational comments from my hon. Friend the Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mark Field) on the EU and immigration—I am just sorry they will not do him any good. I wonder, however, whether in three years he might not feel that it is his party that has deserted him and that...

Schools: Admissions — Question (21 October 2014)

Lord Nash: My Lords, it is true that a high proportion of children missing education are awaiting a place but we have massive in-year movement in this country, partly as a result of immigration. We take the issue of school attendance very seriously. All local authorities are required to put in place a fair access protocol for their schools, which requires all schools to comply. Indications from local...

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014)

Richard Graham: ...out, and lots of providers referring individuals to you. What preparations have both your organisations made for what could be a perfect storm? It will be like a combination of passports in the summer and immigration at the Olympics, all heading your way. Are we going to see website crashes, telephone overloads, everybody arriving at once and—goodness knows—even politicians and...

The...

Business of the House (16 October 2014)

Diana Johnson: ...made a statement on Monday about Ebola and the targeted screening at Heathrow, Gatwick and Eurostar, but he did not refer to ports such as Hull, which are busy entry points and targets for illegal immigration.
