Ensuring a larger proportion of decisions by the Home Office on immigration cases are not capable of being overturned on appeal – Lord Roberts of Llandudno.

Witnesses: Adrian Berry, Chair, Immigration Law Practitionersâ Association JCWI Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP, Home Secretary
Colin Clark: ...163;40 billion investment. On Brexit specifically, the survey covered the issue of recruiting talent in future. The figures are worth mentioning: 47% of the companies surveyed believe that there will be no effect; and 33% were worried. I accept absolutely that we have to get immigration right because this industry employs such highly skilled people. The Oil and Gas Technology Centre,...
Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...of disorder and conflict in Africa, combined with the continuing population increase on that continent, leading to an uncontrollable flow of refugees and migrants northwards across the Mediterranean. That represents the real long-term threat of immigration, not the prospect of a limited increase in Poles and Romanians coming to Britain. The Government’s answer to calls for a new...
Valerie Vaz: ...Heads of Government here to the 25th summit. They will know that a speech given to the Conservative association in Birmingham 50 years ago by a former Member of the House, Enoch Powell, was in response to immigration from the Commonwealth and the proposed Race Relations Bill. I remember my parents being alarmed at the speech—broadcasting it again was unnecessary—but they and...
Caroline Nokes: ...excluding those on student visas is not held in a format which can be reported on. However the total number of in-country grants of leave to remain is recorded and can be found in the quarterly Immigration Statistics, Extensions tables, latest edition at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/immigration-stati stics-october-to-december-2017/list-of-tables
Caroline Lucas: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 16 April 2018 to Question 135034, for how many days each of the four requests to visit Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre was under consideration by the Minister for Immigration before being granted.
Caroline Nokes: ...application. For those who do not fall into these transitional arrangements, the Home Office has already announced plans to introduce a new settlement route for Turkish business persons in the Immigration Rules later this year. While the requirements of such a category are to be determined, this will be a charged route in line with others who are seeking to settle in the UK. ...
Vicky Foxcroft: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether her Department holds information on the number of families with no recourse to public funds who have been offered support under Section 17 of the Children's Act 1989 in (a) Lewisham Deptford constituency, (b) London and (c) England in each of the last seven years.
Vicky Foxcroft: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people living in (a) Lewisham Deptford constituency and (b) the London Borough of Lewisham have (i) been detained for immigration purposes and (ii) successfully appealed a Home Office decision to detain them for immigration purposes in each of the last five years.
Richard Burgon: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what steps he has taken to ensure that in areas where there are no immigration and asylum provider bids, unaccompanied children seeking asylum can get appropriate legal assistance.
.... The Fraser of Allander institute, too, has highlighted concerns about the impact of Brexit on migration and our long-term growth prospects. It is clear that not only is United Kingdom policy on immigration inhumane, but it is harming Scotland’s economic interests. That is why this Parliament has backed our call for new powers so that the Scottish ministers can offer migration...
Stephen Kerr: ...have targets to attract international students, and we can learn from that. Time is against me. My appeal to the Government is: make it easier for students. It is time for students to be taken out of the Government’s net immigration target. Student visas should be easier, not harder to obtain. We should build on the great strength of the UK universities sector as a path to executing...
Baroness Ludford: ...third-party trade deals, the ones that we have by virtue of EU membership are far more valuable. Our food, animal welfare and environmental standards could be compromised by third-party agreements. Many potential partners will want immigration concessions, which has proved difficult. As has been noted by the noble Lord, Lord Lawson, you do not need a trade agreement to export, hence...
Deidre Brock: ...importance of the free flow of data between the UK and Europe in the forthcoming negotiations, the express desire of companies in the tech sector for access to international talent, and the part that the immigration system must play in that. Topically, she also mentioned cyber-security and education—a few Members have said how essential it is for STEM subjects to be pushed to the...
Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...the former communications director of Leave.EU, Andy Wigmore, who was reported praising the Nazi propaganda machine and boasting of Leave.EU borrowing outrageous and provocative tactics from Donald Trump to keep immigration at the heart of the 2016 referendum campaign. As the chair’s statement said, “these statements will raise concerns that data analytics was...
Theresa May: Thank you. Let me update the House on how this has arisen. Those Commonwealth citizens who arrived before 1973 and were settled here have a right conferred by the Immigration Act 1971 to live in the UK. They were not required to take any action with the Home Office to document their status. The overwhelming majority already have the immigration documents they need, but there are some who,...
Afzal Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 15 January 2018 to Question 121751, on immigration: appeals, how many initial decisions are (a) not appealed and (b) overturned on appeal; and what the cost of unsuccessful appeals has been to the public purse in each year since 2015.
