Trade Bill — Report (1st Day) — Amendment 9 — 7 Dec 2020 at 22:45

Moved by Lord Alton of Liverpool

9: After Clause 2, insert the following new Clause-“Agreements with states accused of committing genocide (1) International bilateral trade agreements are revoked if the High Court of England and Wales makes a preliminary determination that they should be revoked on the ground that another signatory to the relevant agreement represents a state which has committed genocide under Article II of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, following an application to revoke an international bilateral trade agreement on this ground from a person or group of persons belonging to a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, or an organisation representing such a group, which has been the subject of that genocide. (2) This section applies to genocides which occur after this section comes into force, and to those considered by the High Court to have been ongoing at the time of its coming into force.”

Ayes 287, Noes 161.
