Lords Amendment to Clause 37: Arrangements with EU about unaccompanied children seeking asylum

Lords Amendment 4*

17 Lords Amendment 4* would remove Clause 37 from the Bill.

18 This would reinstate the original Section 17 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, preserving an obligation for the Government to negotiate an agreement with the EU to allow an unaccompanied child who has made an application for ‘international protection’ in the UK to join a relative in a member state and vice versa.
