Parliamentary briefing - Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: committee stage in the House of Lords
As the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill progresses through parliament, we remain seriously concerned that the 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.
We have briefed peers on the Bill ahead of its committee stage in the House of Lords on Monday 12 February. The below briefing outlines the parts of the Bill which have the most significant concerns with, we find the Bill:
- is constitutionally improper
- bars access to justice
- is unworkable
