“Successive governments have said that the attribution of genocide is a matter for judicial determination.”
“It is the policy of the UK Government that any judgment on whether genocide has occurred is a matter for competent courts rather than Governments or other non-judicial bodies.”
“NHS on the table in US-UK trade deal”.
“the attribution of genocide is a judicial matter”.-[Official Report, 20 January 2021; Vol. 687, c. 959.]
“The determination as to whether a situation constitutes genocide is factually and legally complex and should only be made by a competent court following a careful and detailed examination.”
“the practice has developed in the later stages of the exchanges between the Houses of grouping together as a ‘package’ a number of related amendments for the purposes of decision as well as debate.”
“would constrain the UK’s ability to negotiate our own trade agreement with China”-[Official Report, 12 May 2020; Vol. 676, c. 111.]
