Ukip-affiliated Peers silent on Immigration Bill

THE Report stage of the Immigration Bill concluded in the House of Lords on Monday, April 7.

During this phase of the Bill's passage through the House, Peers continued to examine provisions in fine detail. Many took part in these vitally important debates. Furthermore, many hundreds voted in some, or all, of the five divisions that took place.

However, we find it surprising that not one of the Ukip-affiliated peers chose to vote during the passage of the Bill. When one considers the attitude of Ukip's would-be parliamentarians to their roles in Westminster and elsewhere, their silence is deafening.
