Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I thank all hon. Members who participated in this excellent debate. It was really good to have interest from parties on both sides of the House, sharing the concern about how we welcome and look after refugees.

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I am very grateful to the Minister. I am sure that the all-party parliamentary groups that my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire) and I chair will be very happy to facilitate that meeting. As we heard in the debate, what refugees, in common with all of us, need to be able to settle and build their lives is a chance to be in contact with their families, a chance to...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I beg to move, That this House has considered homelessness among refugees. It is an enormous pleasure to lead the debate under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests on the financial support I received for research capacity in my office in relation to my work on asylum seekers, refugees and migrants. I...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: It is obviously not the same for every single country or every individual asylum case. It is important that we recognise that our obligation to give refuge is shaped by international treaties and conventions that we are long signed up to, and which look on a case-by-case basis at the danger that an individual faces in their country of origin. We need to be clear that we have a robust...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I am aware of the work of the Northern Ireland Law Centre, which was one of a number of organisations that helpfully briefed me for the debate. As the hon. Gentleman says, that guide is an extremely useful resource. Although voluntary groups are providing such resources, the system is fundamentally making things harder for refugees. Their first universal credit payment will not be made for...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I very much agree with the hon. Gentleman. Those points will be the thrust of the remainder of my speech.

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I do, and I will be very interested to hear the Minister’s response. I am grateful to charities and individuals who have shared stories to illustrate what it means for those who become refugees without either the resources or the home they need to rebuild their lives. The Boaz Trust, with which I have had the privilege of working in Manchester, told me about what happened to Mohsen, a...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising that matter. It cannot be right that we allow anyone to be destitute in this country, whatever circumstances they find themselves in. Mohsen’s story is far from untypical and the situation is even more dire for families with children, sometimes creating serious safeguarding issues. Asylum Matters told me about Bao, who was originally...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for making that point. I strongly support the right of asylum seekers to work when the Home Office has singularly failed to meet its own obligations to process cases and make a decision within the given timescale. As the hon. Gentleman says, allowing them to do so would enable them to maintain their skills, build up some savings and remain connected with...

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: In a moment, I will ask the Minister exactly that. Newly homeless people can get easement from job search requirements, being asked to focus instead on basic actions such as finding accommodation. That is at the discretion of their Jobcentre Plus work coach. It is not clear whether new refugees will be able to access a similar concession. In addition, refugees are treated as tier-two priority...

Written Answers — Department for Education: School Teachers' Review Body (16 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, what information his Department holds on the number of (a) Gypsy, (b) Roma and (c) Irish Traveller (i) police officers and (ii) civilian staff employed by Police Scotland.

Foreign Affairs Committee: Points of Order (12 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Earlier this morning, I raised a point of order in business questions, which the Leader of the House responded to. In her response, she suggested that in our earlier correspondence I had chosen to misunderstand what she had said in the Chamber on 21 June. I was very careful in my point of order this morning to report what she had said to me by way...

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: Following months of disruption, Northern Rail has now announced a compensation scheme for season ticket holders, but no special arrangements are being made for those who suffered disruption but did not hold season tickets, and delay repay simply does not meet the inconvenience that they suffered. May we have a debate on the compensation schemes offered to rail passengers?

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Kate Green: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am grateful to you, Mr Speaker, because I know that you are accommodating me while the Leader of the House is still on the Bench, and I appreciate that. I have given both the Leader of the House and the hon. Member for Bridgwater and West Somerset (Mr Liddell-Grainger) notice that I intended to raise this issue. On 21 June, during business questions, the...
