The Bishop of Durham received the following written answer on 25th April 2022:
The Lord Bishop of Durham asked Her Majesty’s Government whether they have applied the Family Test to the Nationality and Borders Bill.
Baroness Williams of Trafford (Con): The Nationality and Borders Bill is part of our New Plan for Immigration, delivering the most comprehensive reform of the asylum system in decades.
We have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment as part of our work on the Nationality and Borders Bill, which was published on 16 September 2021.
The assessment considers the potential impacts on people because of their marriage / civil partnership. It also includes consideration of the possible impacts on children.
The Equality Impact Assessment can be found on the GOV.UK website at; https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-nationality-and-borders-bill-equality-impact-assessment.
