Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: It is certainly the case that far too many victims are not getting justice, because they are either dropping out of the system or being let down. The Opposition support the Bill before us and we will support its Second Reading. Of course there will be individual measures that we need to pursue, but there are many measures in it that were Labour policies or that Labour has called for. However,...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: My hon. Friend makes an important point about the detail and I hope that, in the evidence-gathering sessions in Committee, evidence is properly taken on that. It is an area where the legislation needs to be got right and concerns have been raised. There is also the wider problem of a toxic mix of rents and the failure to end no-fault evictions, which is hitting vulnerable people hard, and the...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: My hon. Friend is absolutely right about the impact of shoplifting. If town centres do not feel safe, it is local businesses that are hit and can end up going under as a result, undermining local economies and putting off local residents who want to go shopping. Sometimes elderly residents, in particular, will simply not go into town anymore if they do not feel safe, and if they feel that...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I would gently say to the Minister that the fact that it is an announcement—

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: It is a plan; it is not even an announcement of something that is going to happen. It is an announcement that there is a plan for the police to check CCTV when a theft has taken place. That just shows how bad things have got over the past 13 years. We welcome any work that is being done, including by the British Retail Consortium with the National Police Chiefs’ Council. However, the...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I will give way, because the Policing Minister is a glutton for punishment on this one.

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: This is the problem with the Policing Minister: he just thinks that the country has never had it so good on crime and policing. As far as the country is concerned, he is incredibly out of touch. That is not what is happening in towns and cities across the country. The idea that we can just merge neighbourhood policing and response teams, which are different things, shows that he simply does...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: My hon. Friend makes an important point—[Interruption.] I do not think the claims made from a sedentary position by the Policing Minister help him in the slightest, given the challenges involving the current police and crime commissioner. We ought to have a consensus on tackling knife crime. There are some measures in the Bill, but they do not go anywhere near far enough. I urge the Home...

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I thank the Home Secretary for giving way. It is so good to see him in the Chamber now. Could he tell us what the percentage increase has been in knife crime since 2015?

Criminal Justice Bill (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: rose—

Net Migration Figures (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: (Urgent Question): To ask the Home Secretary to make a statement on the publication of net migration figures.

Net Migration Figures (28 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: Where is the Home Secretary, and what on earth is going on? The media were briefed that he was going to make a statement on net migration yesterday or today, but we have had nothing, and he is nowhere. The Immigration Minister has been everywhere, madly briefing all his ideas, but who speaks for the Government? Net migration figures are now three times their level at the 2019 general...

Home Department: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: The Home Secretary has been in post for two weeks, during which time he has used the same language to pick a fight with Stockton and show what he thinks of his own Rwanda policy, he has been attacked by his Back Benchers, and Downing Street has already been forced to confirm it still has full confidence in him. Twelve days ago he said the number of asylum hotel bed spaces are down, but four...

Home Department: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: Perhaps that mean an end to the magical thinking that the right hon. Gentleman’s predecessor called for. We still have 10,000 more bed spaces than when the Prime Minister promised to end hotel use. The Home Secretary owes the House the facts. There is still no sign of anything on the failed Rwanda plan, because he knows it will not work, and nothing on the trebling of net migration to...

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: Let me correct the Secretary of State. He may not recall, but I tabled one of the first amendments on reform to introduce a stalking law. That same amendment was eventually taken up in the other place by the Labour lords, and the Conservative Government agreed to it. I am very glad that they did, but he should not take credit for agreeing to a Labour proposal that I and others put forward.

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I beg to move amendment (r), at the end of the Question to add: “and submit to Your Majesty that this House wishes to see an end to the violence in Israel and Palestine; unequivocally condemn the horrific terrorist attack and murder of civilians by Hamas, call for the immediate release of all hostages and reaffirm Israel’s right to defend its citizens from terrorism; believe all human...

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: Eight Justice Secretaries—it has been a struggle to keep count of their changing. We have had eight Home Secretaries in less than eight years and, even worse, two of them were the right hon. and learned Member for Fareham (Suella Braverman). She was so unsuited for the job of Home Secretary that she was sacked twice: once for breaching security rules in government, and the second time for...

Illegal Immigration (15 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: I welcome the new Home Secretary to his post. He is the eighth Conservative Home Secretary in eight years—and what a mess he has inherited. The Supreme Court’s conclusion today is damning. It exposes the complete failure of the Prime Minister’s flagship Rwanda policy, of his judgment in making it the central part of his policy and of the Conservatives in getting the most basic grip on...

Metropolitan Police: Operational Independence ( 9 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: (Urgent Question): To ask the Home Secretary if she will make a statement on the operational independence of the Metropolitan police.

Metropolitan Police: Operational Independence ( 9 Nov 2023)

Yvette Cooper: Where is the Home Secretary? She has sent the Policing Minister here to refuse to repeat her words. We have seen her words this morning; she has been attempting to rip up the operational independence of the police, attacking their impartiality in the crudest and most partisan of ways, deliberately undermining respect for the police at a sensitive time, when they have an important job to do,...
