THE House of Commons is voting on amendments made by the Lords to the controversial Nationality and Borders Bill.

Here’s a breakdown of the amendments and how MPs are voting on them.

  • MPs voted to reinstate proposals to allow the Government to strip people of their British citizenship without notice. Peers had voted to remove the clause from the Nationality and Borders Bill, but the Commons voted 318 to 223, majority 95, to disagree with the Lords.

MPs went on to approve Government amendments to reword this section of the Bill in a bid to ease concerns over how the power could be used.

  • Lords amendment five, which aimed to ensure a section of the Bill complies with international protections for refugees, was rejected by MPs by 313 votes to 231 – majority 82.

  • MPs have voted to reinstate to the Bill a move to treat asylum seekers differently based on how they enter the UK.

Peers had removed clause 11 from the Bill but MPs voted 318 to 220, majority 98, to reject this change.

The Government has argued the planned differentiation in the treatment of asylum seekers, depending on how they arrived in the country, was aimed at discouraging people from travelling to the UK other than via safe and legal routes, given the continuing problem of English Channel crossings.

  • MPs voted to reject Lords amendment seven, which had sought to allow asylum seekers to work if no decision has been taken on their claim after six months.

The Lords amendment was rejected by 291 votes to 232, with a majority of 59.

The Government has offered to meet concerned Tory MPs to discuss the issue further.

  • MPs have voted 305 to 230, with a majority of 75, to disagree with Lords amendment 10, which was linked to immigration rules and entry to seek asylum and join family.
  • MPs voted against a Lords amendment which sought to guarantee the UK takes in at least 10,000 refugees a year.

  • MPs voted 317 to 220, with a majority of 97, to disagree with Lords amendment 13, which had sought to remove the new offence that punishes those who arrive in the UK without a valid entry clearance.
  • MPs voted 307 to 217, with a majority of 90, to disagree with Lords amendment 22, which had sought safeguards over the carrying out of age assessments of asylum seekers.
  • MPs voted 291 to 214, with a majority of 77, to reject a Lords amendment which would have required support of at least 12 months for confirmed victims of modern slavery or trafficking and where the person is not a UK citizen grant them leave to remain.
  • MPs voted 298 to 216, with a majority of 82, to reject a Lords amendment that sought to ditch the requirement for foreigners to have an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) pass when making a local journey to Northern Ireland from the Republic.

There were no further votes on the Bill in the Commons on Tuesday and it will return for further consideration in the Lords at a later date.
