Nationality and Borders Bill and NRPF

We have drafted a short briefing on the Nationality and Borders Bill as laid before Parliament on the 6th of July 2021.

The briefing focuses specifically on Clause 10 of the Bill which proposes to restrict access to public funds (NRPF) to refugees given Temporary Protection Status.
