The Nationality and Borders Bill was introduced to Parliament in summer 2021.

And amendment to the bill proposes to introduce Section 9, which alters the procedure for making a citizenship deprivation.

Section 9 introduces conditions whereby the Home Secretary would be exempted from issuing written notice to an individual having their citizenship deprived.

Contrary to speculation in media coverage, the amendment does not alter the grounds on which a deprivation order can be made, but rather the procedure of a deprivation.
