EU Justice Sub-Committee: Brexit: citizens' rights.
Witnesses: (at 10:30 AM) Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP, Immigration Minister, Home Office
Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...Worse, sections of our media and some of our politicians have written these British citizens off as a feckless underclass sponging off benefits and reluctant to work. Furthermore, part of our country’s dependence on immigration from the rest of Europe has come from employers’ preference for recruiting already trained and motivated workers from abroad as against the harder task...
Gill Furniss: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of the recent fall in EU immigration on trends in NHS recruitment during Winter 2017.
Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...across various local authorities. Around half of those resettled under the VPRS were children. The Home Office is committed to publishing data in an orderly way as part of the regular quarterly Immigration Statistics, in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. The statistics are available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/immigration-statis...
Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...attached to lawful residence. Any individuals encountered not exercising treaty rights can be served removal papers to allow their return to their country of origin. The Government does publish Immigration Statistics which details the number of enforced returns of EU citizens to June 2017 and can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/immigration-stati...
Baroness Hamwee: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many detainees in Immigration Removal Centres (IRCs) have committed suicide in the last 12 months; and what was (1) the name and nationality of the person committing suicide, and (2) the IRC where they were detained, in each case.
Baroness Tonge: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many Palestinians living in (1) Israel, and (2) the occupied territories of Palestine, have been refused entry to the UK in each of the last five years; and how many Jewish Israeli citizens have been refused entry during the same period.
the Earl of Shrewsbury: ...people. Horticulture, including vegetable and salad production, is reliant on considerable numbers of foreign workers, and therefore the industry has a major interest in any future policies post Brexit regarding immigration. Without the availability of these workers, that sector will encounter very serious problems. Many farmers with whom I discuss current farming affairs voted to leave,...
Brendan O'Hara: .... He and many of his colleagues are now seriously contemplating walking away from the industry. I understand that a more constructive meeting was recently held with the Home Office. I sincerely hope that the Minister for Immigration gave a flicker of encouragement that a solution could be found; otherwise the west of Scotland fishing community will be facing the perfect storm, being unable...
Ellie Reeves: In recent weeks, I have noticed an increase in immigration casework. I have previously written to the Home Office about the effect that delays are having on my constituents. Data published by the Department last week showed that only 62% of MPs’ letters and 72% of emails are being responded to within its standard service timescale. May we please have a debate on the modernisation of...
Michael Gove: ...I was able to attend a roundtable in Aberdeen a couple of months ago, at which fish processors were able to put to me their specific demands. Since then, I have talked to the Home Secretary and the Immigration Minister about precisely those issues. I must say that were it not for my hon. Friend, that argument would not be happening at the heart of Government and it would not be being heard...
Brandon Lewis: A person is prohibited from entering the UK while a deportation order is in force. In the event that a person does so enter – by passing through or circumventing the immigration control - they will be deemed to have entered illegally. A deportee who enters the UK in breach of an extant deportation order will generally be removed by the immigration authorities as an illegal entrant. A...
Brandon Lewis: ...lodged in Lille. There is regular transportation to UASC centre in Boulogne. We are fully committed to transferring the specified number of 480 unaccompanied children from Europe under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016. A number of children have arrived from France under section 67 in recent weeks and transfers are ongoing. More eligible children will be transferred from Europe...
