Migration - Question (6 Jun 2016)

Lord Green of Deddington: I am grateful for that response. Is the Minister aware that the population projections that underlie all the Government’s policies simply assume that net migration will fall by 40% and stay down? Does he realise that, if the current levels of immigration should continue, we will have to build a new home every four minutes, 24 hours a day, just for new migrants and their families? Will he...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry - Statement (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, does the noble Earl agree that it is important that we learn the vital lessons from this tragic episode?

Student Visas: Pilot Study - Question (7 Sep 2016)

Brexit: EU Citizens - Question (24 Oct 2016)

If they have not given any such indication, why should we?

Saudi Arabia: Migrant Workers - Question (9 Nov 2016)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I support the thrust of the original Question, having seen at first hand how people can get caught in a very difficult situation. Does the Minister agree that the best way of tackling this with the Saudis is to address the situation of British citizens, for which we have a clear and unarguable locus? They are quite capable of drawing the conclusions from the representations that we...

Immigration: Overseas Students - Motion to Take Note (17 Nov 2016)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Lucas, for initiating this debate, but I think my contribution to it may be slightly different from that of some of the previous speakers.

Brexit: Immigration Policy - Question (30 Nov 2016)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that response, and I declare a non-financial interest as chairman of Migration Watch. I entirely understand the Government’s reluctance to set foot on what is likely to be a fairly slippery slope, but does the noble Baroness agree that it is going to be really difficult for the Government to stick out for three or four months with nothing more to say than,...
