Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Second Reading (11 Nov 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I very much agree with the comments about torture that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope, just made. I am a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, which has just published its report on the Bill, and my comments are based largely on the evidence sessions and the final report. I say at the outset that it is clearly welcome that the authorisation of criminal conduct by...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (5th Day) (9 Nov 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am also a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights and I support what my noble friend Lady Massey said in putting forward the committee’s views and concerns.

On the front of the Bill,...

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have contributed to this debate, giving evidence to support the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Alton, that parliamentary debate is a good thing, which clarifies issues and highlights our concerns, and is therefore an essential part of our democratic process. I will make a few brief comments before getting to the nub of what the Minister said....

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (9 Nov 2020)

Lord Dubs: I am grateful to the Minister. We had three conversations yesterday, and I recall her saying that. I take the point, but my niggle or concern is that the interpretation of Immigration Rules will still be with officials, who may not be as generous in their attitude as the Minister is. That is why I am keen to see the guidance. If the officials are going to interpret the Immigration Rules for...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (9 Nov 2020)

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - Commons Urgent Question (4 Nov 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, is there any truth in the allegation that some other countries—Australia, France, Germany, Canada and the USA—have had greater success in getting their people back? Is this only because their people were not dual nationals? Secondly, have the Iranians ever mentioned the money in the course of our negotiations with them about Nazanin’s release?

Covid-19 Update - Statement (3 Nov 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Minister will be aware that many people have relatives, often aged parents, in care homes, and are unable to visit them because of the restrictions imposed. This is causing a great deal of pain. If we can test all the people of Liverpool, as I welcome, could we not have a rigorous testing programme where all people who have relatives in care homes can be tested so that they can...

Asylum Seekers - Private Notice Question (29 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: As an agreement with the EU on family reunion is unlikely to be reached by the end of December, will the Government, as a matter of urgency, seek the co-operation of the French authorities to identify people, especially children, who are eligible for family reunion or who have other connections with the UK, in order to expedite their safe passage to this country and avoid another tragedy?

Covid-19: Financial Support for High Street Retailers - Question (27 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, does the Minister agree that Covid has exacerbated a problem that existed some time before the pandemic, that high street retailers face higher costs and taxes than internet suppliers and that this will continue long after the Government’s short-term measures cease? Does the Minister agree that we need a permanent solution unless we want to see our high streets permanently damaged?

Covid-19: South Yorkshire - Statement (22 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: The Minister was asked about exit strategies from tier 3 or any of the tiers. He said that the answer was part art and part science. Will he assure us that that does not mean that when the Government do not feel like accepting science, they will simply be vague and ignore what the scientists say? He also referred to travel. Has he looked at the position at German airports, a point raised with...

Northern Ireland: Commission for Victims and Survivors - Question (22 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Minister will be aware that, for the families of victims, closure is a fundamental right, and waiting and waiting is just not acceptable. Can he say a little more about the proposed legislation to give effect to the Stormont House agreement? When will it be forthcoming? Does he realise that it is urgent, and that people are waiting anxiously for progress?

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion D1 (as an amendment to Motion D) (21 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for her explanation and to other noble Lords who supported the amendment. The Minister referred to the Home Secretary’s commitment that she wants safe and legal routes for family reunion of children. Of course, that is an aspiration, but it has to be made effective, and I am not convinced that anything the Government are doing will actually give...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion D1 (as an amendment to Motion D) (21 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, in moving the amendment in my name, I shall comment on the Commons reason for rejecting an amendment from this House, which states: “Because it would involve a charge on public funds, and the Commons do not offer any further Reason, trusting that this Reason may be deemed sufficient.” Given the time we spent on the issue and its importance, to say that the technicality of...

Covid-19 - Statement (20 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I have two brief questions. Somebody I know received the following message on their mobile phone: “Possible COVID-19 exposure. Verifying exposure info. The app has accessed the date, duration and signal strength of this exposure.” Can the Minister say what this means? Is the recipient supposed to do anything about it or is this some maverick message? My second question is on a...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Local COVID-19 Alert Level) (Very High) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (14 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I support my noble friend’s amendment. Just before this debate began, I was downstairs at home, switched on my television, and Andy Burnham was on, the Mayor of Manchester. His concern was that Manchester might shortly be put in the “very high” category, and he made the plea that local government should be properly involved and consulted in those decisions, as opposed to...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (14 Oct 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, does the Leader agree that it is important to keep public opinion onside and that, if the public have lost faith in the Government’s policies, they will not respond in the way we want them to? Specifically, why has local government been virtually ignored over the whole period of the pandemic, as have the Governments of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales? Surely we must ensure...
