Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 34 (9 Sep 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am delighted to take part in this debate, and I am sympathetic to the amendments which have been debated and explained so clearly and positively. I particularly support Amendment 76 in the name of the noble Earl, Lord Dundee, to which I have attached my name. I shall be brief. One of the greatest opportunities for young people is to pursue education, research, training and student...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 22 (9 Sep 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I support all these amendments very happily. I appreciate that the Bill is concerned with EEA and Swiss people, but there is a point of principle which goes wider than the limited scope of the Bill. Some of the arguments we are using apply to that wider point of principle. The first three, Amendments 22, 24 and 29, are all similar, except that they vary on the length of period...

Hammersmith Bridge - Question (9 Sep 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I hope that the Minister’s earlier Answer does not mean that this is to be pushed into the long grass. Does she accept that this is a really urgent matter? People on both sides of the Thames are arguing for restoration of the bridge, not just for cyclists and pedestrians, although they are important, but for public transport. Can she give us a timetable of when she expects action...

Channel Crossings in Small Boats - Commons Urgent Question (3 Sep 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I think we would all agree that these are desperate people, many of them children. They are often the victims of war and persecution. The best way forward is to reach some sort of agreement with the French authorities. I suggest that the Minister should say to the French, among other things, that we will take all the children in northern France who have family members in this...

Childhood Obesity - Question (2 Sep 2020)

Lord Dubs: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to tackle childhood obesity.

Childhood Obesity - Question (2 Sep 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, if the Government persist in abolishing Public Health England, who will be responsible for policies to tackle obesity? Secondly, does the Minister agree that tackling obesity, especially childhood obesity, requires more than a few policy headlines but rather a whole-government approach that includes healthcare, education, local government, transport, finance, the built environment,...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (22 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am grateful that a day or two ago, the Minister allowed us to ask questions and discuss the Bill in a more informal way than we can today. I still regret that there is so much in the Bill that it will not be in our power to do much about: in other words, the powers given to the Government under the Henry VIII provisions or immigration rules will be such that we can hardly...

Hong Kong - Question (21 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Minister will be aware of the statement by the Chinese ambassador a few days ago that we were interfering in China’s internal affairs. Will the Minister make it clear that this is entirely a breach of the Sino-British agreement and that it is not a breach of Chinese internal affairs to stick by the terms of an international treaty? Will he ensure that the widest number of...

EU Exit: End of Transition Period - Statement (15 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, could the Minister clarify his reference to lorry parks, especially in Kent? There is great local concern there. Will he confirm that if there is to be a lorry park in Ashford it will be only temporary? More specifically, what have the Government worked out as the likely time it will take to clear an HGV arriving in Dover, either at the Port of Dover or in a car park nearby, under...

Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime - Question (9 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, may I press the Minister a bit more about applying sanctions on a wider basis than by one country? Does he agree that if sanctions are agreed across a range of countries, they are many times more effective than simply a unilateral step taken by Britain in the hope that other countries will follow suit? Secondly, whereas we could all suggest the names of people who should be on the...

Social Care - Question (8 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they will publish their White Paper on social care.

Social Care - Question (8 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, will the Minister confirm that the Prime Minister, said in his first speech in office that “we will fix the crisis in social care once and for all with a clear plan we have prepared to give every older person the dignity and security they deserve … I will take personal responsibility for the change I want to see”? Is that still the policy, or will the Prime Minister again...

Immigration: Detainee Support - Question (7 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Minister said in reply to an earlier question that detention was for the purposes of removal. Could she then explain why in 2018—the latest year for which I have figures—56% of those detained were released back into the community? Is that not a sign that we are using detention far too much when we do not need to?

Covid-19 Update - Statement (1 Jul 2020)

Lord Dubs: We have frequently been told that the key figure to look at is the R figure. Will the Minister confirm that whereas after lockdown the national R figure was 0.84, it is now 0.94—so we are on a bit of a knife edge? Secondly, can he explain why the R figure is not released locally at the same time as the national figure is released?

Prison Sentences - Question (29 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: May I refer the Minister again to the Ministry of Justice research report, published last year, on the impact of short prison sentences and community sentences? Did not that research show fairly clearly that replacing short prison sentences with community sentences would prevent many, many crimes? Would not that be the best way forward?

Covid-19 Update - Statement (25 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I put it to the Leader of the House that public confidence is not of a high order as regards the Government’s handling. The Minister has said on a number of occasions that discussions are ongoing. What specific plans are available in the event of a second wave on a local level? What would the Government do, as opposed to having ongoing discussions with local authorities? It is all...

Reading Terrorist Attack - Statement (23 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I agree that we saw the police at their very best in Reading a few days ago. I welcome the extra £90 million a year that will be allocated to counterterrorism policing. If I were a member of the intelligence and security services, I would want to find out from MI5 how many of the 30,000 people on a theoretical list it would like to keep under closer scrutiny. In other words, no...
