Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum (18 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Immigration Enforcement do not have set criteria for investigating or taking any action on asylum seekers with an outstanding asylum claim, as they cannot be removed from the UK until a negative decision has been made on their asylum claim and they have exhausted their appeal rights.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Religion (18 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: UK Visas and Immigration (UVKI) has an internal assurance process to assess the quality of asylum decisions and interviews and the application of policy that is used to evaluate the effectiveness of its specialist training on faith or belief-based asylum claims.

This includes information on decisions made by the Taskforce under the Windrush Scheme. The correspondence can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/correspondence-on- the-work-of-the-home-office-windrush The published Windrush guidance...

Points of Order (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: indicated dissent.

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Modern slavery is an abhorrent crime, and the Government are determined to stamp it out. In my role as Immigration Minister, I am especially aware of the shocking exploitation of vulnerable individuals from overseas who are duped by the promise of a better life in the UK, only to be trafficked and sold into modern slavery. Identifying and protecting victims of such crimes is a priority. In...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I reassure the right hon. Lady that I certainly was not misleading the House: there is no central record of those who have received a positive, conclusive grounds decision and are detained under immigration powers. While that information may be obtainable from the live Home Office case information database, otherwise referred to as CID, the information would be for internal management only....

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Individuals in immigration detention are entitled to a free legal advice surgery of 30 minutes within the first 24 hours of their detention and to have as many of those surgeries thereafter. As part of the Shaw re-review of last year, we piloted automatic bail referrals after two months instead of four months, as previously. I must correct my right hon. Friend: it is not lawful to detain...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The Government are committed to ensuring that the rule 35 process operates effectively. In March this year, we launched our targeted consultation on the overhaul of the detention centre rules within which the operation of rule 35 is a key element; of course it is closely linked into the operation of the “adults at risk” policy. We continue to keep the detention gatekeeper function under...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: As my hon. Friend will know, it is through the national referral mechanism that potential victims of modern slavery will be referred, and then support will be available to them. She is absolutely right to point out that many victims of modern slavery are young and many are women. I am sure that she will be pleased with our introduction of the pilot scheme currently operating in Newcastle; we...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The right hon. Gentleman will know that, at any one time, 95% of those liable to detention are actually in the community and not in immigration removal centres at all. It is important to emphasise that a freedom of information request will elicit different data to that which is available in parliamentary questions. I reiterate the point that no central record is held and that the information...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: It is still very much the case that it is the Home Office and Home Office staff in the widest sense who identify the greatest number of victims of modern slavery. Training is provided, and it is important that training is not only provided, but refreshed and is an ongoing process. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has made her commitment clear on this issue, and it has been a driving...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The hon. Lady is simply wrong to suggest that data sharing is always bad. In fact, in many instances, data sharing between the Home Office and the police can identify people who need to be safeguarded, and it is crucial that we have systems that will enable people to be correctly identified and then referred through the appropriate mechanisms. As I said in response to an earlier question, it...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The Home Office is making good progress in replacing antiquated case-working systems and data platforms, much of which will be complete by March next year, but it is a complex change process and although it will provide us with modern tools to protect and utilise data effectively, it is not an instant fix and will require further investment in the coming years. The changes will also mean that...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I reiterate the point that detention can only be maintained where there is a realistic chance of removal within a reasonable timescale. The hon. Lady will have heard me comment earlier about auto-bail applications at two months. An individual in detention can apply for bail at any time. I urge her constituent to provide that advice to the individual concerned.

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The UK ended the routine detention of children in immigration removal centres in 2010 and enshrined that in law under the Immigration Act 2014. It is worth noting that, in the last year of the previous Labour Government, 1,100 children were held in detention. However, in some cases, individuals without documentary evidence of their age who are detained as adults subsequently claim to be...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The right hon. Lady will have heard my previous answers about the importance of relying on published statistics that can be properly verified. Relying on information that turns out to have come from aggregated sources, which then transpire to be inaccurate, is a very dangerous route to go down.

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The hon. Gentleman might have missed the comment that I made at the start of this urgent question. Just because somebody is a victim of modern slavery or trafficking does not mean that they have immigration status in this country. It is important that we reflect on the fact that our first port of call is to offer a voluntary return, so that somebody may go back to their country of origin and...

Immigration Detention: Victims of Modern Slavery (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I remind the hon. Lady that the detention estate is significantly smaller than it was when the last Labour Government left office. She is wrong to suggest that people in immigration removal centres are denied access to food and medicine. They have 24/7 access to healthcare and it is absolutely right that they must do so. We take the vulnerability of detainees incredibly seriously, which is...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals (17 Jul 2019)

Caroline Nokes: The Home Office has carried out a Data Protection Impact Assessment as part of the data sharing arrangements with Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs and the Department for Work and Pensions to support the EU Settlement Scheme, and a copy of this will be placed in the Library shortly. As part of this process, we have had due regard, in accordance with the public sector equality duty under...
