UK Government defeated on small boats bill


Recommended Posts

The UK Parliament has asserted its sovereignty and defeated the Government's proposed illegal small boats bill:

Key parts of Rishi Sunak’s small boats bill have been shredded by the House of Lords as peers inflicted a series of defeats against the government.

Conservatives were among those attacking plans to deport trafficking victims to Rwanda and other countries, as well as moving to force the Illegal Migration Bill to comply with international law and narrow its scope.

Peers supported an amendment removing potential victims of modern slavery and trafficking from a new “legal duty” to detain and deport small boat migrants, in spite of protection claims or ongoing police investigations.
