A very vital Parliament question regarding Rwanda


These questions which were submitted at the end of last week about Rwanda were tragically closed down by the Government. At the end of last week the written questions that were provided by Lord Roberts of Llandudno were answered by Baroness Williams of Trafford. Roger Roberts is a very good member of the House of Lords and as well as being a Liberal Democratic Peer he is also a senior person within the Methodist Church. His questions were very clear and they along with the real answers needs to be published very clearly in public. Tragically the answers from Susan Williams who is a Minister for the Government was not something that any of us would find helpful. So when will there be any answers to replace them? The questions and pathetic answers are shown below. The ironic aspect is that Roger Roberts submitted a total of 6 questions on the theme of Rwanda. Although there were 4 that were not answered that can be seen below, there were two others that were answered. One was here that was answered by Baroness Williams and the second one that was answered was responded by Lord True.

So back to the ones that got blocked, the first can be obtained from here.

Roberts: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to facilitate parliamentary scrutiny of their plans to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda.

Williams: It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. Ministers will correspond directly with the Member

And the second can be obtained from here.

Roberts: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the estimated cost of flying asylum seekers to Rwanda.

Williams: It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. Ministers will correspond directly with the Member

And the third one can be obtained from here.

Roberts: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether male asylum seekers from (1) Afghanistan, and (2) Ukraine, will have to go to Rwanda to complete their asylum claim.

Williams: It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. Ministers will correspond directly with the Member

And the fourth one can be obtained from here.

Roberts: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the Memorandum of Understanding between the UK and Rwanda is binding; and if so, which elements of the agreement are binding.

Williams: It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. Ministers will correspond directly with the Member
