Parliament didn’t debate “The UK should not agree the UN’s Global Compact for Migration”

The Petitions Committee decided not to debate the petition you signed – “The UK should not agree the UN’s Global Compact for Migration”

The Committee has decided not to schedule a debate on this petition because the UN Global Compact on Migration has already been agreed by the UK Government. The final text of the Compact was agreed by the UK Government in July last year. It was adopted by the UN General Assembly in December. You can find more about how the Compact was agreed in this House of Commons Library research note:

The Government says that the Compact is not legally binding and cannot compel the UK Government to change its own immigration policies. On 19th December 2018 the Government made an announcement on its future immigration policy with a statement in the House of Commons and questions from MPs. You can find out more about this debate, and watch the video or read a transcript, here.

Edit: This Tory government have got to go! This is outrageous! We voted Brexit to get rid of Shengan and we get another treaty by the UN which is identical in every way to Shengan. It is being swapped one for the other. Contact your m.p. today about this let’s get out of this treaty signed behind our backs and never voted for by the people.
