Nationality and Borders Bill — After Clause 37 — Refugee Resettlement Schemes — Targets — 20 Apr 2022 at 17:48
The majority of MPs voted not to require an annual numerical target for number of refugees to be resettled in the United Kingdom.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 11B.
Lords amendment 11B stated:
- Insert the following new Clause—
- “Refugee resettlement schemes
- (1) The Secretary of State must publish a numerical target for the resettlement of refugees to the United Kingdom each year.
- (2) The target under this section must include the numbers of people resettled under—
- (a) dedicated schemes for the evacuation of people from a geographical locality, such as a specific third State,
- (b) a general UK resettlement scheme, and
- (c) other routes as appropriate.
- (3) The Secretary of State must put in place appropriate resourcing and infrastructure to support local authorities to deliver the target under subsection (1).”
