Parliamentary Briefing - Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: committee stage

We've prepared a briefing on the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration Bill ahead of its committee stage.
A view of the houses of parliament in Westminster from the ground, with a clear blue sky in the background.

We are seriously concerned that the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill may be incompatible with our international obligations, and that it sets a dangerous legal and constitutional precedent by legislating to overturn an evidence-based finding of fact by UK courts.

Our briefing – prepared ahead of the committee stage on 16 January – explains in detail why we believe the Bill:

  • is constitutionally improper
  • bars access to justice
  • is unworkable
