Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Paddick: ...are committed to ensuring through a confirmatory referendum or, if the public vote for a majority Liberal Democrat Government at the next general election, by revoking Article 50. Further on Brexit and immigration, more than 20 organisations, including the Refugee Council, are currently in receipt of funding from the EU’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund to deliver a range of...

Immigration Staff: Recruitment - Question (18 Jul 2019)

Lord Paddick: ...achieve the target of reducing net immigration to the tens of thousands? This House has recently passed legislation that effectively continues free movement of EU citizens in the event of a no-deal Brexit. So, the only way that this ridiculous target can be achieved is by the ruthless pursuit of anyone who can be deported, even for the most minor of reasons. Does the Minister not agree...

Migrant Children: Welfare - Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2019)

Lord Paddick: ...strain that is being put on local authorities by cuts in the central government grant. In the same way that the Home Office is under pressure to reduce net migration—from the likes of the Brexit Party, UKIP or whatever the latest incarnation of xenophobic, right-wing populism is—local authorities are under pressure to reduce expenditure in every department because of a lack of...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Paddick: ...framework—for example, common data protection standards and the European Court of Justice to resolve disputes—enables greater and more effective law enforcement co-operation. A no-deal Brexit, as my noble friend Lord Newby said, would result in the UK being less safe and less secure. I am confident that a Joint Committee will confirm these facts.

Law Enforcement and Security (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (18 Mar 2019)

Lord Paddick: ...on the area of extradition; thirdly, to examine the impact of losing access to crucial EU databases on securing our borders and how that jeopardises the Government’s immigration strategy post Brexit; and finally, to highlight the muddled thinking of the Government that resulted in their putting too many important legislative changes into one SI. The regret is about the way the Government...

Westminster: Security - Question (5 Feb 2019)

Lord Paddick: ...is the number of officers who are being taken away from policing their local communities, or having yet more days off cancelled, to provide the security necessary because of the mishandling of Brexit by this Government. Will the Home Office reimburse the Metropolitan Police for dealing with these problems, which the Government have created?

Future Immigration - Statement (19 Dec 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...services and UK businesses? It is clear that this White Paper has not been thought through. It is impractical, unnecessary and cannot possibly be implemented in full for many years to come. Like Brexit, immigration policy based on this White Paper will be damaging to our economy, to our public services and to public confidence.

Online Pornography (Commercial Basis) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (11 Dec 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...the internet can access pornographic images as opposed to an age-verification system? The other use of these regulations is an attempt to restrict access to extreme pornography, which is a bit like Brexit—it is not enough for some and goes too far for others, as the noble Baroness, Lady Howe of Idlicote, indicated. I am not sure that, as some have suggested, age verification limits...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (4th Day) (14 Nov 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...be aware that the hostile act is being carried out. As the Bill is worded, someone from Paris or Frankfurt travelling to the UK to encourage UK businesses to relocate to their city in the face of Brexit will be caught by these provisions, because his mission would threaten the economic well-being of the UK and would be in the interests of another state—France or Germany. In a later...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Juveniles) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (16 Oct 2018)

Lord Paddick: ..., but if necessary to secure data exchange treaties. The latter issue is for another day, but let us hope the Government are not prepared to sacrifice peace in Northern Ireland in exchange for a Brexit agreement. I beg to move.

Crime (Overseas Production Orders) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 Jul 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...data protection regulation that has recently been introduced—and the UK’s ability to secure a certificate of adequacy from the European Union if we were to become a third-party country after Brexit. Noble Lords will recall that the EU allows data exchange only with third-party countries whose data regulations and privacy laws are considered by the EU to meet EU standards. If the UK...

Brexit: Identity Cards - Question (25 Jun 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...Lords, in 2005 experts at the London School of Economics estimated that the introduction of an ID card scheme would cost up to £18 billion. Taking account of inflation and the total absence of any Brexit dividend, does the Minister agree that £26 billion would be better spent on the National Health Service?

Serious Violence Strategy - Motion to Take Note (11 Jun 2018)

Lord Paddick: .... The same is true in some countries in relation to robbery. Something serious is missing from this strategy. It is an acknowledgement that an erosion of trust might be driving this violence. With Brexit, Trump, Grenfell, Windrush and #MeToo there are plenty of reasons for people to distrust the Government and their fellow citizens. The world today feels to many unfair and unstable, and...

Brexit: Immigration - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...access to EU workers—at a time of record employment rates—would leave companies without the staff they need to grow and invest”. Will the free movement of EU citizens continue after Brexit across all borders between the EU and the UK or only across the border between the EU and Northern Ireland?

Incident in Salisbury - Statement (8 Mar 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...in Border Force, with reliance placed on electronic gates and remote ports and small airfields not having sufficient protection—a situation that is likely to be made worse if we continue to Brexit. I understand that hostile foreign powers might produce very convincing fraudulent documents to get their assassins into the UK, but can the Minister speculate how on earth a highly toxic nerve...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...Metropolitan Police Service—which pales into insignificance when you consider the experience of the noble Lord, Lord Hogan-Howe—but I have also been briefed by the National Crime Agency lead on Brexit and by the director-general of the National Crime Agency on these issues. It might be considered a technical point, but there is a difference between counterterrorism intelligence...

Policing and Crime Act 2017 (Consequential Amendments) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (7 Feb 2018)

Lord Paddick: .... I engaged my noble friend Lady Hamwee to help me to interpret it, and she assured me that if she had eight hours uninterrupted, she could probably be more certain about the impact. With the Brexit legislation to come, when similar statutory instruments may come in a blizzard to this House, the House will be concerned about its ability properly to scrutinise them. I do not want to go over...

Immigration White Paper - Statement (5 Feb 2018)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, presumably the Minister will have seen the political coverage over the weekend about the damage caused by the uncertainty over Brexit, not least to the National Health Service, which EU nationals are leaving because of the uncertainty. From a situation where they felt they had some certainty, we now learn that there is no certainty during or after the implementation period. The...

Investigatory Powers (Codes of Practice) Regulations 2018 - Motions to Approve (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...; for example, working jointly with the National Crime Agency on child sexual exploitation, which is not within the normal definition of a national security issue. The second problem is that, after Brexit, the UK will be treated as a third-party country by the EU 27. National security issues will no longer be exempt from scrutiny and compliance with EU law if the UK wants to continue to...

Open Skies Agreement (Membership) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (26 Jan 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...Reading of her Bill, which I am very pleased to support. The substance of the Bill seeks to remedy what is—or what appears to me to be—symptomatic of the Government’s chaotic approach to Brexit. I have to admit that I am not sure what the origins of that chaos are. Could it be that the Government do not know what they are doing? Could it be that they are keeping their progress on...
