Deprivation of Citizenship proposal, joint briefing on clause 64 of Immigration Bill

The Equality and Human Rights Commission, Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and Scottish Human Rights Commission have issued a joint briefing, on the government's deprivation of citizenship proposal as detailed in clause 64 of the Immigration Bill.

In their analysis clause 64 does not contain a clear and explicit provision to ensure that it is exercised in a manner proportionate to the risk posed.  The exercise of this power impacts on the rights of affected family and children and how those matters will be dealt with has not been fully explained or satisfactorily addressed to date.
