Attorney General: Northern Ireland Protocol (26 May 2022)

Suella Braverman: I take the convention incredibly seriously; it is a running thread through the integrity, robustness and frankness with which Law Officers can provide advice. I do not comment on media speculation, and that is the Government’s line. [Interruption.] The measures proposed there are to protect peace in Northern Ireland, to protect the Belfast agreement and to protect our precious United...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crimes Against the Person: Emergency Services ( 8 Jun 2020)

Suella Braverman: A disappointing feature of this pandemic is the high number of assaults against emergency workers. The CPS is prosecuting cases robustly. During the first month of lockdown, the CPS prosecuted over 300 cases of assaults against emergency workers and it’s clear that when an individual threatens to infect an emergency worker by spitting or coughing, it will be treated extremely seriously by...

Middle East: Security ( 7 Jan 2020)

Suella Braverman: In light of Soleimani’s alliances with Hezbollah and Hamas, and now the explicit threat of revenge, does my right hon. Friend agree that Israel is exposed and faces a real risk of attack from Iran? If he does, what steps are the UK Government taking to support Israel, a true friend of the UK and of democracy, in its right to self-defence?

Attorney General: Human Rights Act 1998 ( 9 Jul 2020)

Suella Braverman: I speak regularly with my right hon. Friend the Lord Chancellor on many matters, including manifesto commitments. The Government committed to looking at the broader aspects of our constitution, including the balance between rights of individuals and effective government, and to updating the Human Rights Act. I can assure the hon. Member that any implications for the devolved Administrations...

Attorney General: Asylum Seekers: Channel Crossings (18 Nov 2021)

Suella Braverman: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. There are international rules and conventions, which bind state parties, on our duties when it comes to maritime law and our obligations. We honour those duties and take them very seriously. We also have a domestic regime of immigration and asylum, which we are able to modify and change now that we have left the European Union.

Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour (22 May 2023)

Suella Braverman: Antisocial behaviour brings misery and menace. On 27 March, the Government launched the antisocial behaviour action plan, giving the relevant agencies all the tools they need and communities confidence that it will not be tolerated. The plan focuses on making communities safer, building local pride, prevention and early intervention. These proposals will ensure perpetrators are punished and...

Home Department: Crime Reduction (18 Sep 2023)

Suella Braverman: Our communities are safer than in 2010, with overall crime on a like-for-like basis down by 54%. We have put 20,000 more police officers on our streets—a record number—which is enabling us to take action across the board to bring more offenders to justice, to better protect victims and to equip our police with the powers they need to prevent crimes.

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: My hon. Friend makes a good point. The green section of the withdrawal agreement includes an express indication that, during the implementation period, we will, for the first time in 40 years, have the freedom to negotiate, sign and ratify trade agreements with third countries, opening our markets for British manufacturers, exporters and businesses, which is a surefire way of generating...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Ports: Wales (13 Jun 2018)

Suella Braverman: A number of UK Government ministers, including the Secretary of State for Wales and the Minister for Security, have visited Holyhead to discuss the impact of EU exit on the port. UK Government officials continue to work with port operators, key stakeholders, and the Welsh Government, to ensure that traffic continues to flow freely at ports in Wales once the UK has left the EU.

Education: Topical Questions (29 Apr 2024)

Suella Braverman: St Francis School and Heathfield School are two excellent special educational needs schools in Fareham, supporting a variety of children with conditions ranging from Down’s syndrome to epilepsy, but around the country there are 95,000 children at independent special educational needs schools. Does my hon. Friend agree that Labour’s misguided attack on independent schools will be harmful...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2018)

Suella Braverman: I assure my hon. Friend that I share his and the Environment Secretary’s view that, once we leave the EU, we will be able to control access to our waters by non-UK registered vessels, which will be a matter for negotiation. Access to markets for fish products will be agreed as part of our future economic partnership, just as with other goods and food products.

Tuition Fees: EU Students (29 Apr 2019)

Suella Braverman: Does my hon. Friend agree that, post Brexit, we want to continue to attract bright students from many countries all over the world? The proposal that we should exempt EU students from paying fees yet impose them on those from other countries is inherently unfair and, in fact, discriminatory. It does not make economic sense or reflect the open Britain that we are striving to create.

Attorney General: Strength of the Union ( 6 Jan 2022)

Suella Braverman: As the Attorney General for England and Wales, I have the Union at the heart of my work. I am pleased that, for example, CPS Wales performs very well: a recent inspectorate report concluded that the Wales CPS area has the highest magistrates court conviction rate across England and Wales. I take this opportunity to thank all our prosecutors based in Wales for their excellent work.

Home Department: Refugee and Asylum Seeker Accommodation (18 Sep 2023)

Suella Braverman: The asylum accommodation support contracts ensure the provision of safe, habitable, fit-for-purpose and correctly equipped accommodation for destitute asylum seekers. The contracts also require compliance with the law, local authority licensing and best practice guidance. We have been working with the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to minimise the potential impact on...

2. Questions to the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip: Strip Searches on Children (21 Jun 2023)

Rhys ab Owen: Diolch, Gweinidog. The issue of stop and search was raised this week with the Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, by Plaid Cymru's Westminster leader, Liz Saville Roberts, and again highlighted the lack of Wales-specific data—which we hear very often in this Chamber—on stop and search rates by population. Minister, do you support the recommendation of the children's commissioner to abolish...

Education: Topical Questions (24 Jun 2019)

Suella Braverman: Hook-with-Warsash primary school has 60 pupils in reception, but they have only one toilet between them. I think that you would consider that unacceptable, Mr Speaker, as do I. Will the Secretary of State look again at the school’s application—which has been rejected four times—and work with me to see how we can find some resources to provide what is a necessity, not a luxury?

Home Department: Topical Questions ( 3 Jul 2023)

Suella Braverman: While we respect all the rights of those in the trans community, it is clear that biological men cannot breastfeed. It is remarkable that we are in a position where the Labour party leader cannot define a woman. I think he said something like 99.9% of women do not have a penis. On that basis, we cannot rule him out from running to be Labour’s first female Prime Minister.

Attorney General: Covid-19: CPS (28 Apr 2020)

Suella Braverman: I would like to put on record my thanks to the whole CPS family and, indeed, the wider justice system for their hard work during this uncertain period. CPS staff are working remotely and, where safe to do so, in person. They are playing a full part in supporting the criminal justice system’s response to the pandemic with the use of more technology, more collaboration and planning for recovery.

Attorney General: Belly Mujinga ( 9 Jul 2020)

Suella Braverman: I share the hon. Gentleman’s commitment to justice for Belly Mujinga and her family here. The matter is still being considered, and the Crown Prosecution Service has requested that the British Transport police obtain further information on further lines of inquiry. As the review is still ongoing, I am unable to provide further information at this stage, but I am sure there will be an...

Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service (10 Feb 2022)

Suella Braverman: Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service inspectorate recently published a report on CPS performance in the west midlands, and it is due to report on Yorkshire and Humberside in April. I am pleased to say that, despite the pressures of the pandemic, the report on the west midlands found that commendable improvements had been made, including in seeking orders to protect complainants and...
