Calais: Refugees - Question for Short Debate (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the condition of refugees and migrants still in Calais and the surrounding area, one year on from the refugee camp there being demolished.

Calais: Refugees - Question for Short Debate (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, I am grateful for this opportunity. First, I will quote a friend who was there when the bulldozers came to demolish the camps in Dunkirk and Calais 12 months ago. He said that, “after I visited the Calais refugee camp, I still have an image in my head, which I’m sure will be with me for the rest of my life. When I arrived at the camp, there were police in riot gear...

Banks: Immigration Act 2016 - Question (23 Oct 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of whether banks and building societies are able to undertake immigration checks on approximately 70 million United Kingdom bank accounts as required by the Immigration Act 2016.

Banks: Immigration Act 2016 - Question (23 Oct 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: I thank the Minister. She might remember that, in 2007, 25 million benefit claimants’ details were lost. How certain can we be that the 70 million bank and building society accounts will be safe and secure? Are the Government committed to that safety and security? As for the claimants, how will the Government decide who will be investigated and who will not be investigated? The Minister...

Mohammed Mirzo - Question (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, ahead of the planned deportation to Bulgaria of the Syrian refugee Mohammed Mirzo, what assessment they have made of the impact on his human rights.

Mohammed Mirzo - Question (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, and I am happy to welcome the release of Mohammed from Campsfield immigration centre and, before that, the Parc Prison in Bridgend, but why was he there in the first place? What offence had he caused? We know that family reunion takes precedence over anything else. The Red Cross briefing on this states that if somebody applies to go under Dublin...

Children: Gambling Advertisements - Motion to Take Note (14 Sep 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, I too appreciate the work of researchers and others who have given us facts and figures on the present situation with regard to gambling. I could repeat, as others have done, the startling facts with regard to this situation. However, there are different levels of gambling. May I promote my own town of Llandudno? Noble Lords can visit it at any time. It has at least three or four...

Electoral Spending Limits: Wales - Question (6 Sep 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his very encouraging response. It will encourage support for the Welsh language at general election times and others. If we can have this, it will show that we accept that bilingualism is not an easy thing and that it costs, but that the Government are totally behind the Welsh language and its continuance.

Korean Peninsula - Question (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what new initiatives they are taking to ease tensions in the Korean Peninsula.

Korean Peninsula - Question (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: I thank the Minister for those remarks but does she not agree that Britain’s contribution would be far more effective if it was part of a European contribution—from a European community—rather than trying to effect it as an offshore island?

Refugees - Question for Short Debate (19 Jul 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, it is a privilege to take part in this debate, and I am grateful to the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham for introducing it. Two reports have been published over the last few days: one is Refugees Welcome?, which we are discussing now, and the other, from the British Red Cross, is Can’t Stay, Can’t Go. Both show that UK immigration and settlement policy is...

Children in Need - Question (17 Jul 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, as regards the Government’s promise to accept 3,000 unaccompanied children within the next couple of years, how does this link in with the care that our children are getting?

Balfour Declaration Centenary - Question for Short Debate (5 Jul 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, one reason that I support Israel on most accounts is because it is a democratic country. If you try to change regimes in other Middle East countries, you have great difficulty. You have bloodshed, but in Israel, you have a democratic system. It is a PR system that goes to extremes but at least you can change the Government. If we do not agree at present with the Netanyahu...

Immigration Centre Detainees: Pay - Question (4 Jul 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, is the Minister really satisfied that the recipients are not allowed to work for 12 months? After that time of boredom, I imagine that they would volunteer for anything. I have asked this question a thousand times: is it not time that the Government reduced that period to, say, six months or nothing? Also, the payment of £36.95 a week has been in place for at least six years....

Agriculture: Foreign Workers - Question (28 Jun 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: The Minister is of course aware that asylum seekers who come to the UK are not allowed to work for the first 12 months. If that was overturned and perhaps reduced to six months, would it not help the labour force considerably?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, it is a privilege to speak this afternoon and to say how inspiring so many of the speeches have been. I was particularly inspired by three prominent Welsh lawyers, one after another: the noble and learned Lord, Lord Morris, and the noble Lords, Lord Thomas and Lord Elystan-Morgan. We would have had to pay a massive fee, I think, if we had to see them in any other place. In the...

Child Refugees - Private Notice Question (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, the Minister said that there are 4,000 children in foster care. Are these 4,000 asylum-seeking, unaccompanied youngsters, as we voted on in the recent Act, and is she aware that of the children dispersed in France, 600 have made their way back to Calais because they have not been accepted in a very friendly way? Can the she answer those two questions?

Child Refugees - Private Notice Question (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords—

Brexit: Aerospace and Automotive Industries - Question (14 Mar 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, has the Minister considered the situation of Airbus, which is in Flintshire in North Wales and employs 7,000 people, as well as people in the ancillary industries? The wings are produced in Broughton, and there are plants in Filton, near Bristol, Hamburg and Toulouse. The whole of the European Union is involved in building the Airbus. How will we secure the future of those jobs, not...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, when we are told that the people have spoken, we are referring to the one-third of the electorate who supported the leave campaign. I would say that the people have not spoken. They were taken on a ride in a bus built in Poland by a German company. On its side it said, “When we are out of the EU, we will have £350 million a week to spend on the NHS”. That was the...
