Mental Health: Children’s Services - Question (19 Jan 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: Is the Minister aware that half the immigrant children in the Calais or Dunkirk camps were diagnosed with mental health problems? As we are supposed to accept 20,000 refugees in the next three years, is there sufficient funding and awareness of the need to add to our commitment?

Syria: Refugees - Question (10 Jan 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what actions they are taking to help resolve the refugee crisis in Syria.

Syria: Refugees - Question (10 Jan 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, does the Minister agree with me that Britain has a responsibility to lead in the resolution of this crisis in Syria? If so, why has Britain, with GDP per capita of more than $40,000, only received fewer than 4,000 refugees since March 2014 while it is content for Lebanon, with less than half our GDP, to accept 1.6 million refugees? With civilian bombing still continuing, does the...

Syria: Aleppo - Private Notice Question (20 Dec 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, I beg leave to ask a Question of which I have given private notice.

Syria: Aleppo - Private Notice Question (20 Dec 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: I thank the Minister for that Answer. Does she agree with me that the immediate need is for safe evacuation and that a no-fly zone over Idlib would secure that safety, as well as halting any further destruction and killing? Will she press for this no-fly zone as a United Nations initiative? The people there need a safe and compassionate destination. The UK has pledged to accept 20,000 Syrian...

Brexit: European Union Citizenship - Question (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they are planning to protect the European Union citizenship status of United Kingdom citizens who were born after the United Kingdom joined the European Union on 1 January 1973.

Brexit: European Union Citizenship - Question (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, I would be happy if the Minister will advise me how I can explain to my grandchildren how a leave vote of 18 million can affect the status of 65 million—the whole population of the UK—and that that vote seeks to deny them a fundamental right which they have. That is especially true for those born since 1 January 1973, when we joined the Union. The birthright of half...

EU: Unaccompanied Migrant Children (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, the crisis that we are faced with in the UK and Europe is only part of a worldwide migration crisis. We hear from the United Nations that there are 65 million displaced persons in the world, and we know that in Europe alone, as already mentioned, there are 88,000 unaccompanied children. In the years to come, our legacy will not be a good one for our children, because with global...

Asylum Seekers - Question (1 Nov 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, following the Minister’s earlier reply, can I take it that the rule that does not allow asylum seekers to work for the first 12 months they are here is to be revised? Will they be able to earn a living before then? Also, will the deportation of so many of our young asylum seekers when they reach the age of 18 come to an end?

Calais: Child Refugees - Question (24 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to fulfil the obligation under the Immigration Act 2016 to accept unaccompanied child refugees before the camps at Calais and Dunkirk are demolished on 31 October.

Calais: Child Refugees - Question (24 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: We all welcome the child refugees. However, can the Minister say why it has taken more than 12 months for us to reach here? We have argued week after week, and yet until a few days before the demolition of the camps the answer was, “We can’t accept them”. Why was that? Can we have a guarantee that in the future, every single child who is in Calais or Dunkirk on the last day...

Calais Camps: Unaccompanied Minors - Question (19 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of the planned demolition of the refugee camps in Calais by 31 October, what steps they are taking to ensure that all unaccompanied minors are registered and considered for settlement in the United Kingdom before that date.

Calais Camps: Unaccompanied Minors - Question (19 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: I thank the Minister for that Answer. I am sure we all welcome the 14 children who were received here two or three days ago, but I am told that that currently leaves 1,020 unaccompanied children in Calais. Fourteen have come here, so there are only 1,006 left to accommodate. Is there a plan to ensure that every one of those 1,006 will be registered and given the opportunity to apply to enter...

Migrants in France: UK Contribution - Question (12 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, can we send a note of gratitude to the volunteers and organisations that have manned the camps in Calais, without whom life would have been impossible for the refugees there? Can we also remember that it has taken us a long time to consider welcoming 387 child refugees? Does the Minister have confidence that by 2020 we will have accommodated 20,000 Syrian refugees, as was pledged?

France: Dublin Regulation - Question (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, some people will remember well that 50 years ago this week, there was a great disaster in Aberfan: 116 children and 28 adults were killed when slurry fell on the school. Would it not be a wonderful commemoration of and tribute to those children if we could say that this week, just before the demolition of the Calais camps, we had this movement now—action this day? Or perhaps...

France: Dublin Regulation - Question (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: I will repeat that: be citizens of the world and accept these children. Insist that they are brought over now.

Calais: Refugee Camp - Question for Short Debate (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, can she assure us that the 387 children whose names are already with the Home Office will receive immediate consideration, before the winter, which we hope will not be harsh, sets in?

Calais: Refugee Camp - Question for Short Debate (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, I was encouraged by the Minister’s answers last week that the pledge to accept 20,000 refugees by the end of this Parliament was on track, that the infrastructure was there and that more 100 local authorities were ready to co-operate in making sure that these people were able to come. That is of course encouraging, but do we have to wait until 2020 to receive those people? If...

Calais Jungle Camp - Question (14 Sep 2016)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, the Minister will remember that we passed the Immigration Act on 8 May this year. Under it, the Government will accept an unspecified number of child refugees in the coming year. How many children have been accepted under the renowned Dubs agreement? None. Not a single child has been accepted. Is it not time that we took our finger out as far as the children of Calais and Dunkirk...

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to speed up the reuniting of refugee children in the camps of Calais and Dunkirk with their families in the United Kingdom.
