Arrests and Prison Capacity (22 May 2024)

Yvette Cooper: (Urgent Question): To ask the Home Secretary to make a statement on the impact on public safety of the request to chief constables to reduce arrests in response to the prison capacity crisis.

Arrests and Prison Capacity (22 May 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I have to say that the Minister’s response is shocking: telling people they have never had it so good when faced with this crisis in the criminal justice system shows just how out of touch he is. The state of crisis in the criminal justice system after 14 years of Conservative Government is now so dire that police chiefs were asked to arrest fewer people because the system could not cope....

Russia ( 8 May 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I thank the Home Secretary for advance sight of the statement. It is the first job of any Government to keep our country safe from those who wish to do us harm, not least those who wish to undermine our democracy and everything that we stand for. We pay tribute to the remarkable work of our intelligence and security services and our law enforcement agencies—at home and abroad—which strain...

Home Department: Topical Questions (15 Apr 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Mr Speaker, I remember the kindness that your father showed me and our long discussions on rugby league. I add my condolences. The Hillsborough tragedy was 35 years ago to the hour. We remember the 97 who were lost and support the families’ campaign for a Hillsborough law. We strongly condemn Iran’s attack on Israel this weekend, and we must do everything we can to prevent further...

Home Department: Topical Questions (15 Apr 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The Home Secretary will know that we have raised this many times. I understand the complexity of the issue. The proscribing legislation was drawn up more than 20 years ago to address terrorist threats such as al-Qaeda, rather than state-sponsored threats that have both domestic and international security objectives. Our bottom line must be keeping this country safe, which is why Labour has...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Mar 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Reverting to the previous amendment on the facts that Parliament should be given, can the Minister confirm the reports in the paper that the Home Office is now seeking to pay people to go to Rwanda in order to fill the flights? Can he also confirm that if people take up that Home Office proposal, they will be subject to exactly the same very substantial payments to the Rwandan Government?...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 1 - Introduction (18 Mar 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Minister give way?

Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration ( 4 Mar 2024)

Yvette Cooper: We think of the family and friends of the seven-year-old who lost her life in the channel this weekend. It matters more than ever that we stop the criminal gangs and dangerous crossings that are undermining border security and putting so many lives at risk. The Tory Home Secretary has shamefully tried to bury or hide 13 inspectorate reports and one National Audit Office report with damning...

Angiolini Inquiry Report (29 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I thank the Home Secretary for advance sight of the statement. Three years ago this Sunday, a young woman walking home was abducted and brutally killed by a serving police officer who she should have been able to trust to keep her safe. Today we think of Sarah Everard and her parents, family and friends, who have to live with the shattering consequences of what happened. This is also a day...

Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Last week, Tell MAMA reported that anti-Muslim hate incidents have trebled. That follows recent reports that antisemitic incidents have hit a record high. We all must challenge all forms of threat, prejudice, racism and hate. Having heard the words from the former deputy chair of the Conservative party of a Muslim Mayor, who said that his “mates” are Islamist extremists and that he has...

Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I am sorry that the Minister, who I know takes issues seriously, chose not to respond to my question. Rightly, on all sides of the House we have called out and condemned antisemitism, and we must continue to do so. If Government Ministers cannot openly challenge Islamophobia, they play into the hands of extremists—both far right and Islamist. The Minister will know that hate crime fuels...

Immigration Rules and Border Security (20 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on changes to UK immigration rules and the security of the UK’s borders.

Immigration Rules and Border Security (20 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: It has been reported today that hundreds of high-risk private flights have landed in the UK without proper border security checks having been done. If the Minister disputes the figures, will he tell us the true ones now? Were all the high-risk private flights checked or not? Ministers have been warned repeatedly about border security risks on private flights. The Prime Minister may think it...

Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Home Secretary give way?

Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: On that point, will the Home Secretary encourage the Prime Minister to go before the Intelligence and Security Committee at the soonest opportunity? My understanding is that that has not happened for 10 years.

Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The first duty of any Government is to keep their citizens safe—to defend our national security and defend our citizens against terrorism, extremism and serious crime. Labour always stands ready to work cross-party on national security to keep our country safe. It is why we are supporting this Bill today, why we will work with the Government to get the details right, and why we look forward...

Antisemitism in the UK (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I welcome the Minister’s statement, and advance sight of it. The appalling and intolerable rise in antisemitism in Britain in recent months, as set out in the report of the Community Security Trust last week, is a stain on our society. We must never relent in our work to root it out—something that I know the whole House will want to affirm. The more than 4,000 incidents in 2023 alone are...

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: rose—

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The ONS states: “Police recorded crime provides a better measure than the Crime Survey for England and Wales of higher-harm but less common types of violence, such as those involving a knife or sharp instrument (knife-enabled crime).” Does the Minister agree? Does he acknowledge that knife crime has gone up 77% since 2015 and that it is a deep, deep tragedy for our country?

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Minister give way?
