Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme - Statement (16 Mar 2022)

...those fleeing repression in Idi Amin’s Uganda, and those who fled the atrocities of the Balkan wars. More recently, we have offered support to those fleeing persecution in Syria, Afghanistan and Hong Kong. We are doing so again with Homes for Ukraine. We are a proud democracy. All of us in this House wish to see us defend and uphold our values, stand shoulder to shoulder with our allies,...

Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Mar 2022)

Dominic Raab: The hon. Gentleman is right that we have a strong tradition, as we have shown: we have stepped up to the plate with the Hong Kong British national overseas citizens, and with Operation Pitting which brought 17,000 back from Afghanistan, and we will go further and beyond the normal rules when there is a crisis, as we have seen in Ukraine. He is absolutely right about the current scheme: those...

International Travel (15 Mar 2022)

Louise Haigh: ...outlined some contingency measures, but he had previously committed to publishing a full contingency strategy to deal with possible future variants. With surging cases in international hubs such as Hong Kong and Shanghai, does he agree that he should be fully transparent about his plans, and that that would boost confidence for the travelling public and the airline industry? Can we get a...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Update (15 Mar 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...considerably. It is likely that that is due to immune protection—not least from vaccines—more than it is due to omicron being inherently milder. That is borne out by current experience in Hong Kong, where relatively low rates of vaccination, particularly in the older population, mean that omicron is causing very significant levels of severe illness and death. That underlines the...

Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (14 Mar 2022)

Michael Gove: ...those fleeing repression in Idi Amin’s Uganda, and those who fled the atrocities of the Balkan wars. More recently, we have offered support to those fleeing persecution in Syria, Afghanistan and Hong Kong. We are doing so again with Homes for Ukraine. We are a proud democracy. All of us in this House wish to see us defend and uphold our values, stand shoulder to shoulder with our allies,...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Third Reading: Motion (14 Mar 2022)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...serves your Lordships’ House. I notice that the noble Lord, Lord Patten of Barnes, has been listening in the Chamber this afternoon. He spoke in our debate last week about the position of young Hong Kongers. Along with the noble Lord, Lord Sharpe, the noble Baroness was incredibly helpful in incorporating into this Bill something that will really benefit young people in Hong Kong who,...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment A1 (10 Mar 2022)

Lord Stunell: ...he had a million valid ones, he was disqualified for submitting fraudulent names—strictly according to the rules, of course. Another entirely rules-based democratic disaster is playing out in Hong Kong. Legislation on elections there, largely bequeathed by Britain, has been subtly modified by the applications of government strategies on the election regulator. That should give the...

Refugees from Ukraine (10 Mar 2022)

Yvette Cooper: ...have to travel 200 miles to Warsaw to pick up their visas. It is welcome that the Home Secretary is now introducing the online approach. We know that different ways of doing this were tried for Hong Kong visas, but why has it taken so long when she has had intelligence for weeks, if not months, that she needed to prepare for a Russian invasion of Ukraine? If we still have to wait until...

Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill - Second Reading (9 Mar 2022)

Viscount Waverley: ..., there is an exchange of shares to the actual and final beneficiary. Alternatively, the horses have bolted, and I am told that moveable assets have already taken flight to such destinations as Hong Kong or Nauru in the Pacific. Some 1,892 property titles were purchased by overseas companies before January 1999. These would be exempt from having to declare their owners under the current...

Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 47 (9 Mar 2022)

Baroness Janke: disinvest from Saudi Arabia on the grounds of arms sales, and others are looking at boycotting investment in China on the basis of its treatment of the Uighurs and its conduct of the affairs of Hong Kong. As my noble friend Lady Sheehan has said, carbon-neutral boycott is now a common principle, and many local authority pension schemes wish to disinvest from further investment in local...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Integrated Education Bill: Final Stage (9 Mar 2022)

Justin McNulty: Sorry, not yet. I had friends such as Lawrence Wong from Malaysia and Davy Lo from Hong Kong. Through Aidan O'Rourke, our outside-the-box-thinking English teacher, the Abbey played sporting contests versus Newry High School at Newry Olympic Hockey Club's pitch: one half GAA and one half hockey. I will not tell you who won the GAA and who won the hockey, but I can say that the Abbey won on...

Prime Minister: Engagements (9 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: This country has an unparalleled record—[Interruption.] Just since—[Interruption.] Since I have been Prime Minister, look at the numbers we have taken from Afghanistan and Hong Kong. The right hon. Gentleman lectures the Home Secretary, but this is a Government unlike any other: the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Home Secretary are directly descended from refugees. We...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 80 (8 Mar 2022)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...will know the importance that I attach to numbers. This has become even more important as the number of refugees and migrants entering the UK increases, as they arrive perfectly legitimately from Hong Kong, Afghanistan and, unless disaster can be reversed, Ukraine. My Amendment 81 would require the Secretary of State to ensure that information is regularly published on immigration,...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 77 (8 Mar 2022)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: .... We are not talking about large numbers—it not 5 million people—but people who have served the Crown. If anybody is vulnerable today as a result of the passing of the national security law in Hong Kong, it is surely people who have served the Crown. There is no question in my mind about the justice of what my noble and gallant friend is arguing for, but this is not the first time of...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 76 (8 Mar 2022)

Lord Patten of Barnes: ...bounds of public decorum, but on this occasion I want to say without any reservation how strongly I support what the Government have done. We have a continuing moral responsibility to the people of Hong Kong. Hong Kong has been hit by a mendacious Government in Beijing—including Mr Putin’s best friend, we are now told—who have set about comprehensively and vindictively destroying the...

Ukraine: Urgent Refugee Applications (8 Mar 2022)

Robert Buckland: .... What is my hon. Friend’s view of the ability of Ukrainians with biometric passports to use the UK Immigration: ID Check app, which does apply and has been used by many applications from Hong Kong? May I commend that course of action to him?

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Hong Kong: Judiciary (3 Mar 2022)

Jim Shannon: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps she is taking to help support the independence of the judiciary in Hong Kong; and if she will discuss that matter with her international counterparts.

Support for Ukraine and Countering Threats from Russia (2 Mar 2022)

Andrew Murrison: ...’s enemy is my friend, will he be wary and cautious about his dealings with China, given that China of course continues to commit human rights abuses in Xinjiang, potentially in Taiwan and in Hong Kong? While it is commendable that it abstained at the United Nations, we need to be very careful about how we position ourselves with respect to China in the weeks and months ahead.

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Mar 2022)

Boris Johnson: ..., the big, big package of measures that we are putting in to help people fleeing Ukraine. I just want to repeat: look at the numbers we took from Afghanistan and look at the numbers of BNOs from Hong Kong. Huge numbers of people have come to the UK. I think we have settled 25,000 vulnerable people since 2015, which is more than any other European country, so we should be proud of our record.
