To ask Her Majesty's Government whether a child rights impact assessment was carried out for the Nationality and Borders Bill; and if it was, whether it will be published.
27 July 2021
This Government has a strong track record of helping child asylum seekers. In the year ending March 2021, we granted protection or other leave to over 2,333 vulnerable children, and over 46,000 since 2010.
Through the Nationality and Borders Bill, we will strengthen our ability to help those who need our help, while preventing abuse of the system and the criminality associated with it.
