Motion text

That this House recognises the injustice faced by hundreds of Negev Bedouin who have had their Israeli citizenship revoked without adequate explanation or warning due to claims that their original citizenship was issued in error; is concerned that this is a policy to remove the legitimate citizenship rights of the Bedouin and leave them stateless; notes the considerable barriers to re-obtaining citizenship, once lost, including cost, time, extensive documentation and language requirements; and calls on the Government to put pressure on the Israeli Government to end this discriminatory policy.
