UIN HL15158, tabled on 21 April 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Denmark about reports (1) that it plans to remove the residence permits of Syrian refugees currently residing in Denmark, and (2) that such refugees have been mistreated in deportation camps.

When we have concerns about humanitarian issues and conditions in a country, we raise these directly with the government concerned. Denmark is party to both the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the 1951 Refugee Convention and we are confident that Denmark has a robust legal rationale to demonstrate this approach and is in compliance with its obligations under both Conventions.
