Immigration Rules: Statements of Changes - Motion to Regret (27 May 2021)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I am grateful to the Government for providing time for this debate, albeit a little late in the day, and to the Minister for her responses. I was, however, alarmed that she should say that immigration policy is not about numbers; they are surely a major part of all this, for reasons that were very well explained by the noble Lords, Lord Horam and Lord Hodgson. At the same time, of...

Immigration Rules: Statements of Changes - Motion to Regret (27 May 2021)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I originally laid three Regret Motions in protest at the Government bouncing through a huge change to the immigration system with minimal discussion in this House.

Net Migration - Question (25 May 2021)

This could so easily spin out of control. Does the Minister agree that it would be...

Covid-19: Syria - Question (29 Apr 2021)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I have been following events in Syria for more than 50 years. The current regime can indeed be brutal, but it is no worse than any likely alternative, and it is at least firmly opposed to Islamic extremism. It defeats me what the real policy of the Government is in this, but my noble friend Lady Cox is absolutely right— all the Syrian people, whether supporters of their Government...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - Private Notice Question (28 Apr 2021)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, this is a very difficult case, but I wonder about our approach to it. The Minister will recall the case of the British hostages in Lebanon held by groups connected to the Iranians. As it happens, I dealt with those cases, both in London and later in Damascus. Our strategy at that time was to refuse to negotiate and to keep the public profile down so as not to add to the perceived...
