Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 17 - Asylum or human rights claim: damage to claimant’s credibility (26 Oct 2021)

Roger Gale: The Chair has no desire to curtail comment, particularly from the Front Benches, but we do have to remain within the scope of the matter under discussion. I am conscious that that is difficult when there are related clauses, but the hon. Gentleman has strayed into referring to clauses 20 and 23. The Chair will bear that in mind when we come to those debates; I would not expect repetition on...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 16 - Provision of evidence in support of protection or human rights claim (26 Oct 2021)

Roger Gale: Before I invite the Minister to respond, I need to clarify something. At the start of his remarks, the hon. Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark indicated that there had been a lack of time to consider the Bill. I cannot recall whether he was a member of the Programming Sub-Committee, which I chaired, but the programme motion was agreed by its members, from both sides of the House. The...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill (26 Oct 2021)

Roger Gale: Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Before we start, I ask Members to ensure that their electronic devices are either switched off or on silent.

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill (25 Oct 2021)

Roger Gale: As a fellow patron of the Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation, may I thank the Secretary of State for his kind remarks about Sir David Amess?
