Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Minister give way?

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I want to give the Minister the opportunity to make sure he is not providing inaccurate information to the House. He has implied that the ONS believes that the crime survey, rather than the police recorded crime statistics—[Interruption.] No, this is about factual information from the ONS.

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: There is a factual point about what the ONS believes is the most accurate measure to use for knife crime. I have quoted at the Minister the ONS’s words about the police recorded crime statistics being the most accurate measure for knife crime, and the Minister has tried to deny that that is the case. I want to give him the opportunity to give accurate information to the House, and to be...

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I thank the Minister for responding to this immensely important debate, but may I press him on the specific issues in the motion? Will the Government launch a new consultation on including ninja swords in the ban on online knife sales? If he agreed to that today, we would make a significant step forward.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (17 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: May I first add my tributes to Tony Lloyd? He did such wonderful work in policing, as well as in this place. What a farce. Today and yesterday have been more days of Tory chaos and carnage. We have a Prime Minister with no grip, while the British taxpayer is continually forced to pay the price. Former Tory Cabinet Ministers and deputy chairs from all sides have been queueing up to tell us it...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (17 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The Prime Minister did also lose his Immigration Minister as part of the chaos of the last few weeks and months—I give way to the former Immigration Minister.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (17 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Nice try with total nonsense from the former Immigration Minister, who has a history of making things up. It is not clear that there is anything on the planet more expensive per person than the Government’s Rwanda scheme: £400 million to send nobody to Rwanda and to totally fail. I give the former Immigration Minister credit for exposing the Government and the Prime Minister’s real...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (17 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: We obviously support the Albania agreement, but will the Home Secretary confirm that only 5% of Albanians who have arrived in the country over the past few years on small boats have been returned or removed? What has happened to the other 95%?

Home Department: Topical Questions (15 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: We welcome the proscription of Hizb ut-Tahrir. Five more lives were tragically lost in the channel this weekend. As criminal gangs profit from those dangerous boat crossings, it shows how vital it is to stop them, but we need the Home Office to have a grip. The Home Secretary gave no answer earlier on the 4,000 people he has lost from the Rwanda list. Can he tell us if he has also lost the...

Home Department: Topical Questions (15 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Returns have dropped 50% since the last Labour Government. The Home Secretary is still not telling us where those missing people are. He appears to have lost thousands of people who may have no right to be in the country, and lost any grip at all. In the ongoing Tory asylum chaos, we have Cabinet Ministers, countless ex-Ministers and the deputy Tory chair all saying that they will oppose the...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: rose—

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Minister confirm that the latest figures show that the number of people in asylum hotels is 20% higher than it was last December, when the Prime Minister promised to end asylum hotel use, and that the costs have gone up from £6 million a day when the Prime Minister complained about this last December to more than £8 million a day, as the Minister just said today?

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Minister give way?

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The Minister has been generous. Given that he has published the future costs of the agreement with France, why is he still refusing to publish years 4 and 5 of the Rwanda agreement? We know how much will be paid in ‘24, ‘25 and ‘26 for France. Why not tell us the same figures for Rwanda? The taxpayer is entitled to know.

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I beg to move, That an Humble Address be presented to His Majesty, that he will be graciously pleased to give direction to the Home Secretary that, no later than 16 January 2024, there be laid before this House: (a) a list of all payments, either already made or scheduled, to the Government of Rwanda under the Economic Transformation and Integration Fund, including the cost of the fourth-...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The right hon. Member is right. There are many ways in which the hundreds of millions of pounds spent could alternatively have been invested. It is probably roughly equivalent to about a third of the budget of the National Crime Agency, for example, to take action on criminal gangs. The right hon. Member is right, and we do know some figures on the costs of the Rwanda scheme. We know that...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: We already have, and have had for a long time, processing in other countries within the UK asylum system. For example, the Homes for Ukraine scheme, which I think both he and I support, means processing cases in other countries. It is also what happened for the Hong Kong scheme. We know that the cost is now £400 million, and we can conclude that it is possibly considerably more. According to...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: My hon. Friend is completely right. Over the last five years, the Conservatives have let criminal gangs take hold along our borders, along the channel. That is undermining our border security. We should be strengthening our border security and fixing the asylum chaos that has built up over the last few years. That includes going after the criminal gangs and stronger border security measures....

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Before I get to that important question, I will give way briefly to both hon. Members in turn.

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Jan 2024)

Yvette Cooper: In theory, someone who was in Turkey and applied for the Homes for Ukraine scheme would be processed while in Turkey. However, it is not clear what the Government are proposing, or what the hon. Member is proposing, because nothing has been proposed by the Government. Labour’s proposal is to go after the criminal gangs through a new cross-border unit, with stronger security powers, and a...
