I have no doubt that in future, as we have done in the past, we will want to protect our legacy. The noble...

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...more refugees, and as we will, I hope, welcome more refugees here, I wonder whether the Government have considered that. I declare my position as co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Hong Kong. Of course, BNO passport holders have the right to vote, but their children will not—so it could literally be that someone who was born in Hong Kong on a certain day has the right to...

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...implies that the Government are far removed from the reality that free protests have been crucial for the public over centuries. The denial of that right, whether in Putin’s Russia or China’s Hong Kong, should be a visceral reminder to us here of why protest —warts and all—matters. Of course not all protests are popular. Many of the modern protests I have mentioned, such as those...

Nationality and Borders Bill: After Clause 4 - Provision for Chagos Islanders to acquire British nationality (22 Mar 2022)

Edward Leigh: I do not think that that is true. Actually, if we talk about our response to Ugandan refugees, Hong Kong and many other areas, we have been generous. We have to have a sense of proportion. Such is the overwhelming number of people who want to come here, we have to hold the line. If we did not, it would have a catastrophic effect on race relations. [Interruption.] Yes, it would, because people...

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.

That underlines the...
