Genocide Amendment Update: Revised Amendment Passed by House of Lords

2 February 2021


Tonight, Members of the House of Lords voted to approve the revised Genocide Amendment by a majority of 171, and send it back to the House of Commons for another vote.

This is truly encouraging news and takes the UK one step closer to sending a clear and strong message to the perpetrators of Genocide.

However, the hard work does not stop here, this is a campaign without party affiliation and the narrow margin by which the last amendment was defeated shows that many Conservative MPs are willing to rebel against the Party Whip on this issue.

That is why we need your help now more than ever. It is up to you as a constituent to check how your MP voted and if they voted no, please ask them to think again now the amendment is returning to the House of Commons.
