Net Migration - Question (3 Feb 2020)

Lord Green of Deddington: Read all about it on our website, and you will see how we got that figure.

Clearly a rapid increase in immigration is a considerable risk, as indeed has happened on a number of occasions, so will the Government, as a...

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I declare a non-financial interest as president of Migration Watch, and remind the House that Migration Watch speaks for 30 million adults in the UK who wish to see immigration reduced. Eighteen million of them wish to see it reduced “by a lot”. For comparison, only about 5.5 million wish to see an increase, so they are outnumbered by rather more than five to one. The views of...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, the debate has been very interesting and wide-ranging. I was especially interested in the contribution of my noble friend Lord Kerr. However, there has not been much mention so far of what I will call “real people”—people outside this Chamber. I should like to focus briefly on one of the major factors that underlay the outcome of the referendum. I refer, of course, to...

Immigration Staff: Recruitment - Question (18 Jul 2019)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I shall be concise, as always. Does the Minister accept that there is a serious problem with the immigration service, which is that it is hopelessly under-resourced? The rate of removals has halved, and delays are growing all over the system. Does she accept that, if we want an effective immigration system, as the great majority of the public do, we have to pay for it?

Lord Green of Deddington: I realise that the Minister may be about to answer the point, but the reason there are no Christian refugees accepted is because they are not safe in the refugee camps. Is she about to deal with that?

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I also congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Elton, on securing the debate.

Saudi Arabia: Torture of Political Detainees - Question (13 May 2019)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, having spent seven years in the British Embassy in Riyadh, I feel there is something familiar about this discussion. Clearly, we face a very difficult situation there and it is highly unsatisfactory. Does the Minister agree that it is slightly better to avoid a direct head-to-head with the Saudis on these things? They believe, and probably will also say, “These are not British...
