Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Nov 2021)

David Powell: Just one operational point. Julia has spoken of the confidence that the Government will bring to the investment community, and we have seen that there are companies that want to invest in projects, but we would very much like that to be operational. Getting the investment early on is quite hard to do, so the confidence from the Government’s approach on the RAB model would...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witness (9 Nov 2021)

Dr Wright: We have had a lot of conversations with members about how things happen with livestock worrying after the horse bolted, because, in effect, you are trying to find the culprit of an attack that has already happened. I do not think that we will ever get to a situation whereby we can prevent every single attack—that is absolutely correct. I am hoping that the Bill will increase the...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Rob Taylor: Very much so. This has been a long journey. I represent the police forces of the UK, and I was the team manager for North Wales police in 2013 when we started the first designated rural team of its type anywhere in the UK. We now have more than 25 dedicated teams throughout the UK. The problem of livestock attacks previously existed in our rural and farming communities, but it...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Dr Girling: Yes, I genuinely do believe that that is the case. We currently have 12 members plus myself on the committee. The members cover a wide range of disciplines, from veterinary surgeons who have worked for many years and are recognised as specialists within the community to those who are working in a variety of zoo licensed premises—from larger zoos to smaller ones. We have members...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Paula Boyden: Part of that will be legislation, but that is only one part of it. We know that the majority of livestock worrying is actually by dogs who are not with their owners and have escaped from a garden, so there is an element of irresponsible ownership there. Certainly, some of the proposals within the Bill—about tackling those irresponsible owners, depriving them of their dogs and...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 54 - Instructions to the Migration Advisory Committee (4 Nov 2021)

Stuart McDonald: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This is the final new clause. On that note, I should start by thanking all the organisations that have been incredibly helpful in providing briefings, draft amendments and so on; thanking the staff of the House for their incredible patience in dealing with millions of amendments and new clauses; and thanking you, Ms McDonagh, and Sir Roger...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 49 - Disclosure of international agreements for prevention of unlawful border crossings (4 Nov 2021)

Jonathan Gullis: I reiterate that, having gone down to Dover to meet the Kent intake unit in Dover docks, having met in the joint control room with deputy director Dave Butler of the clandestine threat command, and having been to Tug Haven and western Jetfoil on a cross-party parliamentary visit, it was fantastic to learn and understand. I share concerns expressed by the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 50 - Route to settlement for children and young people who arrived in the UK as minors (4 Nov 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause would shorten the route to settlement from 10 years to five years for children and young people who have grown up in the UK and know no other home. This issue has a big impact on a relatively small number of people. These are bright young people who want to contribute to society but face a long, uncertain and financially...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 46 - Permission to work for people seeking asylum (4 Nov 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I will try to be brief in the interests of time. I thank the Lift the Ban campaign for its sterling work on why this new clause is so necessary and why it would be so beneficial. Current immigration rules dictate that asylum seekers can apply for permission to work only if they have been waiting for a decision for over 12 months and only...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 27 - Asylum dispersal strategy (4 Nov 2021)

Neil Coyle: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I thank the British Red Cross for its help with the new clause, which is very simple and is line with what the Government have said they are committed to elsewhere. It would simply entail publishing a strategy to cover Home Office accommodation, and it aims to ensure an equitable distribution of people across England, Scotland and Wales,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 23 - Safe and legal routes (4 Nov 2021)

Tom Pursglove: I am afraid that the hon. Gentleman and I simply do not concur on this point. The simple truth is that this country is generous in the opportunities that it provides for people seeking sanctuary, and that will continue to be the case. We have had many debates on that point in this Committee, and I personally believe that that is beyond any doubt whatever. Our resettlement schemes have...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 13 - Reporting to Parliament in relation to the prevention of death (4 Nov 2021)

Stuart McDonald: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. Everyone in this Committee has expressed concern at the loss of life in the channel when people make dangerous journeys to seek asylum here. This new clause brings us to loss of life among people already in the immigration and asylum systems. It asks: what do we know about such deaths, what do we do in response to prevent other deaths...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 14 - Immigration health surcharge: exemption for international volunteers (4 Nov 2021)

Tom Pursglove: The Government recognise the important contribution that international volunteers make to our communities, and are committed to attracting people from overseas who wish to gain experience of our voluntary sector. The temporary work-charity worker visa is available to those who wish to undertake unpaid voluntary fieldwork for up to 12 months, where the work contributes directly to the...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 4 - Minimum Income Requirement: Family members of British citizens with a connection to British Indian Ocean Territory (4 Nov 2021)

Tom Pursglove: I appreciate the positive intent behind new clause 4, which seeks to create a means whereby, in the future, British citizens who were born on, or descended from a person born on, the British Indian Ocean Territory will be able to bring their foreign national spouse or partner to the UK, without their being subject to the current financial and English language requirements for family...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 1 - Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme (4 Nov 2021)

Tom Pursglove: I thank the hon. Members for Enfield, Southgate and for Halifax for tabling new clause 1 and providing the Committee with this opportunity to consider placing the Afghan citizens resettlement scheme on a statutory footing and lifting the 5,000 person limit for the first year. The UK has a proud history of supporting those in need of protection, and I understand the concerns that Members of...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 2 - Dispersal policy and asylum accommodation arrangements (4 Nov 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: I look forward to having that conversation with the hon. Gentleman after the debate, because we need a fairer system; too much of the burden is clearly being put on some local authorities and not enough on others. Local authorities are vital partners in providing suitable accommodation and support for people seeking asylum. The system works best when central Government, the devolved...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 1 - Quashing orders (4 Nov 2021)

Andrew Slaughter: Much of the evidence suggests that the public are quite sophisticated about this. They see that all Governments make mistakes, get caught out and have to change their minds. In the end, the public make a judgment about a Government’s overall record. It is quite wrong for Governments to be, as this one is, so thin skinned that any criticism requires not just a response but, effectively, a...

Public Bill Committee: Taxi and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill: Clause 1 - Relevant Information (3 Nov 2021)

Sam Tarry: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge, who has a great deal of expertise on this issue and has worked cross party in such a fantastic way to bring these measures forward, I do not want to talk too much about the points I made on Second Reading. However, it is important to note that there is so much consensus across the House on the need for the Bill. The hon. Member for Darlington has...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 70 - Commencement (2 Nov 2021)

Stuart McDonald: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman and the other hon. Members involved for their work on that report, which was incredibly thorough. We then had a Backbench Business debate and the Government did not oppose it, because there was clearly a majority in the House of Commons at that time for such a time limit. Finally, I want to say why 28 days should be the limit. There is a body of evidence...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 59 - Processing of visa applications from nationals of certain countries (2 Nov 2021)

Paul Blomfield: I hear what the right hon. Member is saying, but the scope of this provision seems to go much wider than that. It seeks to introduce punitive measures, including on visa charges and so on, for individuals who may be applying, and I will develop that point. It is nothing to do with overstaying. This is about countries that are unco-operative on returns in other contexts. I want to press the...
