Why Nationality and Borders Bill is not compliant with international asylum law

The following is analysis extracted from the joint submission of Migrant Voice and Amnesty International UK to the Public Bill Committee on this Bill. It considers whether the Bill will assist or undermine international asylum law and duties.

Regrettably, this is not an objective that Ministers have said they wish to pursue. Nonetheless, Ministers have suggested they are concerned about the principle of asylum being undermined. The Bill sets out, in various ways, to undermine the UK’s international commitments and so, counter to the concerns Ministers’ express, to undermine the principle of asylum.
