Asylum Claims - Question (25 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: To ask His Majesty’s Government how many asylum claims are currently waiting to be determined.

Asylum Claims - Question (25 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, when do the Government expect to process the claims of the 55,000 or more people who arrived since March 2023, especially the 22,000 or so who arrived between March 2023 and July 2023, who are not covered by the possibility of being sent to Rwanda?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion E1 (as an amendment to Motion E) (20 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I warmly support Motion E1 moved by my noble friend Lady Lister. I will be very brief. This House has consistently supported the rights of children in relation to asylum. These are the most vulnerable people in the whole of the asylum system. If a mistake is made, the consequences would be out of all proportion to the damage done if a mistake is made in the other direction. That is...

Cancer: Staffing - Question (14 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I should declare an interest in that my wife is receiving treatment from the Royal Marsden. Is it possible that the national statistics mask a great variation between hospitals such as the Marsden, which is absolutely top of the range, and some others? Is it worth looking at the differences and what we can learn from them?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (12 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, mine is a different point. I am not sympathetic to the point that the noble Lord, Lord Howard, has just made. On Report, I raised the question of representations by the Government of Jersey and our Government’s failure to consult before including a provision in the Bill. I do not know whether this also represents the view of Guernsey and the Isle of Man, but the Government of...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 44ZA ( 6 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: I am afraid that we are still left with a very unclear position as regards Jersey, and possibly also the other Crown dependencies. Where does this leave us? Jersey has made it clear that it does not consent to the permissive extent clause. Where does that leave us? It is a bit of a mess. Should not the Government bring forward something to tidy this up at Third Reading?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 44ZA ( 6 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 44A, which is on a different point from the one the noble Lord made about Northern Ireland. The point is simple. There is a long-standing convention that the United Kingdom Government do not legislate for the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man without seeking their consent before doing so. I had a letter from the Government of Jersey asking me whether I...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 34 ( 6 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I would like to endorse the arguments used by my noble friend Lady Lister and to fully support this amendment. We all know that child assessments are difficult, and they can be traumatic for the children concerned. I know of an example where a girl, who was quite sensible and coherent, was being interviewed, and then, when she left the interview, she was traumatised, deeply upset...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 ( 4 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: If that is so, why or how is it that a number of refugees from Rwanda have been given asylum protection in this country?

UK Population Growth - Question ( 4 Mar 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, of the proposed increase, how many are going to be asylum seekers?

Shamima Begum - Question (27 Feb 2024)

Lord Dubs: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the implications of the Court of Appeal’s judgment on 23 February depriving Shamima Begum of British citizenship, in particular with regard to whether she is now in effect stateless.

Shamima Begum - Question (27 Feb 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am sorry but that does not get us very far. Will the Minister confirm that Shamima Begum must still be regarded as innocent, although she has said that she is willing to come back to this country and face trial? Furthermore, will the Minister confirm that it is very likely that, at the age of 15, she was trafficked away from this country to Syria? Will he finally confirm that, in...

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Feb 2024)

Lord Dubs: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the financial difficulties facing many local authorities.

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Feb 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, what the Minister said is of course welcome, but it is still a drop in the ocean compared to the cutbacks local authorities have faced since 2010. The Government keep talking about cutting taxes in a forthcoming Budget, but is not the real issue that council tax payers also pay taxes? Surely, council tax increases will have to make up for cuts in income tax. This is not honest.

Holocaust Memorial Day - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Feb 2024)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, this is an emotional day for me. I welcome the comments made in the very interesting, important and solemn introduction. I agree with every word that was said. It is possibly appropriate to reflect on the film that has come out recently about Nicky Winton, the person who saved 669 Kindertransport children from the Holocaust. It was a film that drove me to tears. I am sorry for...

NHS: Drug Shortages - Question (17 Jan 2024)

Lord Dubs: To ask His Majesty’s Government what is their response to the reported shortages of NHS drugs.
