The proposed changes in the Nationality and Borders Bill risk UK-flagged vessels being pushed into a catch 22: assist those in distress and risk criminal liability or do not assist, breach duties of international law and witness the deaths of other people. This risks criminalising voluntary organisations like the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
My amendment presses the Government for an exemption, which would honour our international commitments and protect organisations like the RNLI and the amazing work they do across our country.
