Modern Slavery National Referral Mechanism: Waiting Times - Question (13 May 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare that I am co-chair of the parliamentary group on modern slavery and vice-chair of the Human Trafficking Foundation. Can the Minister say how the NRM will deal with potential victims of modern slavery when the Illegal Migration Act is in force?

Ukraine: Small Boats - Question ( 1 May 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: If these boats are unsafe, why can the Government not let them have other boats?

Ukraine: Small Boats - Question ( 1 May 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: If these boats are unsafe, why can the Government not let them have other boats?

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119BA (as an amendment to Amendment 119B) (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Perhaps I may add something about High Court judges, having been one myself. It may not be necessary to have a sitting High Court judge, because there are a number of recently retired High Court judges who would be entirely suitable. However, it needs to be a High Court judge who has tried medical cases. I add the fact that many family judges try medical cases quite as much as civil judges....

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 113 (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am grateful to the noble Baroness. Apart from inquests and statutory inquiries, what are the circumstances in which she expects this to be necessary?

Family Reunion Visas: Gaza - Question (24 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I wonder whether I could interrupt the Question to pay a very brief tribute to Lord Field of Birkenhead. He was a man of the highest integrity, and MP for Birkenhead for many years—but it is his work on modern slavery that I refer to. He was responsible, with my help and that of the noble Lord, Lord Randall, for persuading Prime Minister Theresa May to have the Modern Slavery Act. He was...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 80 (23 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Will the Lord Chancellor do that?

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 80 (23 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I have put my name to these four amendments. I feel quite strongly about Amendment 80 in particular, although I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, that they are in fact a package. I was, as I have said many times, a family judge and I tried a great many sexual abuse cases. I spoke earlier about the trauma of sexual abuse lasting right through adulthood. But I ask your...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (23 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I had not intended to speak on this group but, having heard from the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin, I want to add my 100% support for what she has just said. As a family judge for something like 35 years, I tried cases of sexual abuse against children. I also happened to do a report on the diocese of Chichester, and I met adult members of that group who had suffered serious sexual...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I have put my name to Amendment 2 and would have liked to put my name to Amendment 8. I do not need to say much about Amendment 2 because it has been extremely well explained by the noble Lord, Lord Russell, and the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay of Llandaff. I support everything they have said. The noble Lord, Lord Ponsonby, has not yet spoken to Amendment 8, but a very good example...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I tried to add my name to this amendment but in fact I was on holiday, staying with my daughter in Spain. The suggestion that I sent put me on to Amendment 2 instead of Amendment 1, but I strongly support Amendment 1. I was for many years a family judge and President of the Family Division. I spent a great and uncomfortable part of my time hearing about the sexual abuse of children,...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Before my noble and learned friend sums up on his Motion, I say to the Minister that he has not answered the question about what happens if there is a change in Rwanda and it is no longer safe.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, since the Minister spoke about Motion E, I should like to respond to the government amendment. I am co-chair of the parliamentary group on modern slavery and a vice-chairman of the Human Trafficking Foundation. The government amendment on modern slavery or human trafficking is entirely inadequate to deal with a group of people who are victims of a crime, suffering very often serious...

Asylum Claims - Question (25 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, how many of those already denied asylum are still in the country?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion G1 (as an amendment to Motion G) (20 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, the Minister did not refer to my amendment at all in his summing up. However, I beg leave to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 251, Noes 214.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion E1 (as an amendment to Motion E) (20 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I will speak to Motion G1. I declare an interest as co-chair of the parliamentary group on modern slavery and vice-chair of the Human Trafficking Foundation. It is compassion that leads me to insist on the amendment that I put down on Report and bring back again now. We are talking about a group of people who are wholly different from any other group about which the Minister and...

West Midlands Combined Authority (Transfer of Police and Crime Commissioner Functions) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I come entirely fresh to this issue, but I would like to ask the Minister: what on earth is the point of a consultation if the majority says one way and the Government take no notice?

Gibraltar: UK-EU Negotiations - Commons Urgent Question (12 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I am a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Gibraltar, so I visit it regularly. I have been to see the airport, particularly the side that has been built for Spain. What is expected for someone like me arriving by air at Gibraltar Airport and going through both Spanish and British immigration? I am wondering how that is going to work.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 42 ( 6 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I spoke to this amendment on Monday. I should like to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 246, Noes 171.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 34 ( 6 Mar 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I also support Amendment 34. Several years ago, I was invited by the charity Safe Passage to a drop-in centre of young people who were migrants. I talked to two young Afghans, both of whom were known to be under 18. One had a moustache and the other had a beard. How on earth could an assessment be made, if they did not have any papers, that they were not over 18? There are real...
