Nationality & Borders Bill Briefing for House of Lords Committee Stage


This briefing concerns Clause 9 ‘deprivation of citizenship’ and Clause 10 ‘stateless minors’ of Part 1 (Nationality) of the Nationality & Borders Bill (NBB).

We have serious concerns that the changes proposed in Clauses 9 and 10 are contrary to the letter and spirit of international law, will risk increasing statelessness in the UK, and will unnecessarily leave more children in limbo, exposed to the detrimental impacts of growing up without a nationality.
