Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty: Points of Order (23 Jul 2018)

Amber Rudd: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The right hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) and his shadow Treasury team, whose names escape me right now, visited my constituency of Hastings and Rye over the weekend, yet failed to alert me to the fact that they were coming. Could I ask for your advice, Mr Speaker, on how I might encourage Members to come in a personal capacity to the...

Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Amber Rudd: This matters. May I respectfully say to the Minister that she should not let the Government’s commitment to delivering on the referendum result obfuscate the real questions that are being raised? This has not come out of the blue; there has been a series of accusations and suggestions, in not only this campaign but others. The protection of the valid confidence that the public need to...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Amber Rudd: Will the Minister give way?

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Amber Rudd: My right hon. Friend will be aware that there is some concern on this side of the House regarding new clause 36. He has set out why he is prepared to accept it, but will he reaffirm for those of us on both sides of the House who have those concerns that this will not impact on the negotiating strategy of the UK Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Amber Rudd: The UK and the US have a uniquely strong relationship when it comes to security and intelligence services, the results of which regularly save lives not only in the UK but across Europe. May I ask that when our right hon. Friend the Prime Minister meets President Trump, she thanks him for that relationship and the results of it, but might also take the opportunity to share with him the many...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (4 Jun 2018)

Amber Rudd: While I welcome the Home Secretary’s comments about ensuring non-EU migration for the NHS, may I ask him to also bear in mind the needs of the private sector and ensure that any solution he finds does not merely put more pressure on the tier 2 visa cap? We must ensure that our private sector businesses get the highly experienced, skilled labour that they need.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 May 2018)

Amber Rudd: May I take this opportunity to congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Bromsgrove (Sajid Javid) on his appointment to the Home Office, which is such an important Department in terms of not only security but ensuring we have a safe and fair immigration policy? The UK threat level remains at severe. Last year we had five terrorist attacks that got through, and 36 innocent people were...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: Yesterday, I gave evidence to the Select Committee on Home Affairs about the Windrush generation—the people who contributed so much and who should never have experienced what they have. These people are here legally and should never have been subjected to any form of removal action; and, as I told the Home Affairs Committee yesterday, I have seen no evidence that that has happened....

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: I would like to make the very clear distinction between legal and illegal migrants. The right hon. Lady talks about the Windrush cohort. We have already established that the Windrush cohort is here legally. This Government are determined to put this right, which is why I put in the new measures to ensure that that happens. I believe that I have addressed the issue of targets, referring to the...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: I thank my right hon. Friend for putting it so clearly; it is such an important distinction to make. This Government, like many Governments before, including Labour Governments, took action against illegal immigrants. Some former Labour Home Secretaries had some very clear targets about removing illegal migrants. Removing illegal migrants is what Governments should be doing in order to...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: I think that once more the hon. Lady is confusing the difference between legal and illegal migrants. Like any other Member of this House, I do not think that she would want the UK to be a home for illegal migrants. That is why we have policies which make it difficult for illegal migrants to thrive in the UK. That is exactly the right thing to do. It was started under former Governments. It...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: I thank my hon. Friend for his comment. He is right; the public expect us to remove illegal migrants who are here and who do damage to our society, and it is right that the Home Office has a policy which makes sure that that has happened. Once more, I want to be absolutely clear that that is not the case with the Windrush cohort, who are here legally, and the group of people we are reaching...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: The right hon. Lady raised that with me yesterday, and I said to her then, as I repeat here, that I will look into that and come back to her with an answer to that question as soon as I can.

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: That is a target we can all agree with.

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: The right hon. Gentleman asked early on about the issue of removals, and I have addressed it in the action that I have taken and in the report that I gave to the Select Committee yesterday. We have established that there were 8,000 people within the cohort who might have had Windrush characteristics—the indication that he has put in his social media—and we have gone through them...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: My right hon. Friend raises an important point. There are plenty of examples and quotations from the Labour party about its targets and determination to remove illegals. Removing illegals is something that everybody and every Government should do and want to do, and this Government make no excuse for wanting to do it, but the Windrush group, whom we all respect, are a completely separate...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: It is my experience that our caseworkers work with compassion and care in administering their duties. Under this leadership, I will always make sure that they do.

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: My right hon. Friend is right of course that exit checks are an important part of securing our borders and knowing who comes and goes, and I am very pleased that this Government reintroduced them in 2015.

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: I want to make it clear that I would never use that phrase, and it is not an approach I would want anybody working in the Home Office to take. I have said that, as a result of the Windrush changes, I will make sure that the Home Office has a more human face. I am setting up a new contact centre and making sure there are more senior caseworkers so that the more junior caseworkers have the...

Home Office Removal Targets (26 Apr 2018)

Amber Rudd: I accept that we should do more at the border, although there are areas where we are having some success. I point, in particular, to our juxtaposed border in France, in Calais, where we stop an enormous number of illegals trying to get to the UK. We are investing more money, alongside the French, to make sure we can have more success there, so I hope that my hon. Friend will see some progress.
