Nationality and Borders Bill — 20 Apr 2022 at 17:48

“evidence supporting the effectiveness of this approach is limited”,
“Value for money of the policy is dependent on it being effective as a deterrent. Evidence of a deterrent effect is highly uncertain and cannot be quantified with sufficient certainty to provide me with the necessary level of assurance over value for money.”
“For the avoidance of doubt,”
“and must be…given effect as such.”
“I truly believe, as do many others, that several of these provisions flagrantly breach our obligations as interpreted by the UNHCR”.-[Official Report, House of Lords, 4 April 2022; Vol. 820, c. 1882.]
“quite wrong to suggest that there was no need for this amendment because the courts would anyway deal with the challenge to the legislation based on suggested non-compliance. I repeat: the amendment is vital. The courts otherwise cannot go behind the definitive clauses in the Bill and would have to apply them, compliant or not.”-[Official Report, House of Lords, 4 April 2020; Vol. 820, c. 1883.]
