Written Answers
Asylum: Rwanda
Asked by: Lord German (Liberal Democrat - Life peer)
Tuesday 21st May 2024

Question to the Home Office:

To ask His Majesty's Government, following their press release on 1 May stating that individuals are to be detained for removal to Rwanda in the next nine to 11 weeks, how many such individuals they anticipate will be granted immigration bail in the interim.

Answered by Lord Sharpe of Epsom - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Home Office)

As all detention decisions are particular to the individual concerned it would be inappropriate to predict the extent of any related future activity.

The government has repeatedly stated that it will not be providing a running commentary on the removals process.

Asylum: Rwanda
Asked by: Lord German (Liberal Democrat - Life peer)
Friday 24th May 2024

Question to the Home Office:

To ask His Majesty's Government, following their press release on 1 May stating that detention capacity had been increased to more than 2,200 spaces for those being removed to Rwanda, how many additional detention spaces have been created for this purpose and where they are located.

Answered by Lord Sharpe of Epsom - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Home Office)

The Home Office currently operates seven immigration removal centres (IRCs) throughout the UK

As of 24 April the Home Office has the capacity to detain around 2,200 people in IRCs, including those liable for removal to Rwanda.

Entry Clearances: Families
Asked by: Lord German (Liberal Democrat - Life peer)
Thursday 23rd May 2024

Question to the Home Office:

To ask His Majesty's Government how many people were given entry clearance to the UK in the last recorded 12-month period on the basis of (1) family life as a partner or parent, or (2) exceptional circumstances in compliance with Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Answered by Lord Sharpe of Epsom - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Home Office)

The number of applications for entry clearance to the UK that are made on the basis of family life as a partner or parent and any exceptional circumstances in compliance with Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights does not form part of any current transparency data or migration statistics and is not published.

The published online transparency data does, however, include a range of processing data.

Select Committee Inquiry
15 May 2024
Review of treaty scrutiny
International Agreements Committee (Select)
Not accepting submissions

The International Agreements Committee (IAC) is the principal body in Parliament tasked with scrutinising treaties under the framework established by the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 (CRAG). Since its establishment in 2020, the IAC has issued two reports on working practices and has made recommendations to Government on how to make treaty scrutiny more effective within the CRAG framework. This short inquiry will review treaty scrutiny practice and consider how treaty scrutiny could be further improved.
