McDonald: Thanks. While we are on legal advice, under this Bill, if an asylum seeker arrives in the UK on one of the dinghies—it could be an Afghan interpreter for all we know—they will be guilty of a criminal offence punishable by up to 4 years of imprisonment. Is that accurate?

This is truly Orwellian. How can you arrest & detain these desperate people for failing to "enter" the UK?!
