Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: On that point, will the Home Secretary encourage the Prime Minister to go before the Intelligence and Security Committee at the soonest opportunity? My understanding is that that has not happened for 10 years.

Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The first duty of any Government is to keep their citizens safe—to defend our national security and defend our citizens against terrorism, extremism and serious crime. Labour always stands ready to work cross-party on national security to keep our country safe. It is why we are supporting this Bill today, why we will work with the Government to get the details right, and why we look forward...

Antisemitism in the UK (19 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: I welcome the Minister’s statement, and advance sight of it. The appalling and intolerable rise in antisemitism in Britain in recent months, as set out in the report of the Community Security Trust last week, is a stain on our society. We must never relent in our work to root it out—something that I know the whole House will want to affirm. The more than 4,000 incidents in 2023 alone are...

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: rose—

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: The ONS states: “Police recorded crime provides a better measure than the Crime Survey for England and Wales of higher-harm but less common types of violence, such as those involving a knife or sharp instrument (knife-enabled crime).” Does the Minister agree? Does he acknowledge that knife crime has gone up 77% since 2015 and that it is a deep, deep tragedy for our country?

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Yvette Cooper: Will the Minister give way?

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.
