Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (15 Oct 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords this is a field day for the Opposition. Is it not the case that the Europeans might now be deciding that there will not be a deal and, as I believe they are, preparing themselves for no deal? Should that not be the focus of our own work very soon?

Jamal Khashoggi - Private Notice Question (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I declare an interest as a former ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Does the Minister agree that the changing nature of the Saudi regime is a matter of regret? Does she further agree that, given the economic, political and strategic importance of Saudi Arabia, we should tread gently in public and speak firmly in private?

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals (13 Sep 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether in the event of a no-deal Brexit they intend to implement unilaterally the immigration element of the citizens' rights agreement reached with the EU in December 2017.

Windrush - Statement (4 Sep 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, does the noble Baroness agree that the new Home Secretary is to be congratulated on getting a grip on this issue so quickly and effectively? Does she also agree that this episode has very little to do with current immigration policy and that it should not be used to undermine measures that are necessary to protect our borders?

Brexit: Negotiations and No-deal Contingency Planning - Statement (4 Sep 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that there is a heavy responsibility on the Commission to ensure that arrangements for British citizens in European countries match those that we have offered to those in this country, which we are much more efficient at implementing?

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Suri, and to hear some common sense on freedom of movement from a member of the immigrant community. I intend to be extremely brief, given that the hour is late, and I shall focus on the dog that hardly barked. Some noble Lords may be able to guess what that is. I am sure that many noble Lords will have noticed a kind of developing...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: Before the noble Lord sits down, does he accept that a major factor in the 2016 referendum was immigration? If so, why has he not mentioned the word in his speech?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Deportation: Appeals (13 Jul 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Tribunal Procedure Committee has reached a decision regarding the implementation of the Government’s proposals to cap the time between an initial Home Office decision to remove a detained foreign criminal or failed asylum seeker and the conclusion of their appeal to the First-tier Tribunal; and if so what that decision was.

Immigration: “Right to Rent” Scheme - Question (6 Jun 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that, given the difficulties of removing what might be up to 1 million illegal immigrants, it makes good sense to try to bring in measures that would encourage them to leave of their own accord? Is she aware that recent opinion polls have shown that between 70% and 80% of the public agree with the measures that the Government are taking?

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Algeria: Religious Freedom (30 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Algeria to ensure that the National Commission for Non-Muslim Religious Groups functions efficiently and fairly, particularly to ensure that applications from churches are considered within the designated period.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Algeria: Religious Freedom (30 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the decision of the government of Algeria not to recognise the Association of Protestant Churches of Algeria; and what representations they have made to that government to encourage them to process the Association’s re-registration application without delay

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Algeria: Religious Freedom (30 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of reports that Christians in Algeria face severe restrictions in importing Christian literature and other materials.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Algeria: Religious Freedom (30 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of (1) the content, and (2) the use of, anti-proselytisation laws in Algeria and their effect on freedom of religion or belief in that country.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - Statement (22 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, may I just make one point to the Minister? These are very difficult cases, and I speak as someone who dealt with the two nurses in Saudi Arabia. That went on for a very long time and was very distressing to many people. It is necessary in addressing this issue to take account, and to be seen to take account, of the Iranian Government’s judicial processes. We will not get very far...

Gaza - Statement (15 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I declare an interest as a former chairman of Medical Aid for Palestinians. Two days ago, we could not have imagined that 58 people would be shot, 2,000 civilians would be injured and explosive bullets—it is alleged—would be used. It is absolutely appalling. Frankly, for the Government simply to say that they are concerned is pathetic. In the face of that, they should condemn it...

Asylum Seekers - Private Notice Question (15 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, does the Minister accept that there is a much wider issue here? The ability to remove immigration offenders, including failed asylum seekers, is vital to the credibility of the entire immigration system. None of that excuses some of the behaviour in the report, as referred to by the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, but let us keep our eye on the ball. There is a wider issue here, but we...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: Is the noble Lord aware that this was looked at in some detail during the referendum campaign, and the Norwegian experience was that they had to show severe difficulties in their labour market, it had to be reviewed every three months, and they never used it because they feared retaliation? It is not as simple as that; there is a major issue with the EEA, which is freedom of movement, and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, one aspect of this will be dealt with, or should have been dealt with, by looking at the immigration system we will have with Europe. We have made proposals for the free movement of young people, and we could have proposals for movement without visas and so on and so forth. Personally, I think the Government made a serious mistake in not setting this out and getting into a...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, would we still be members of the European Union for the period of the extension and therefore have all the rights of a member?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: The noble Lord just made an important point: there is no certainty that that would be granted. Why does the noble Lord believe that it will be? Surely that is a matter for the ECJ, or may become one. What is behind the noble Lord’s remark?
