Withdrawn  NC16

 

To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Compensation for an illegal working closure notice where order is cancelled/

 

no compliance order is made

 

(1)    

Where an illegal working closure notice is issued and—

 

(a)    

is subsequently cancelled in accordance with paragraph 3 of Schedule 3

 

to this Act, or

 

(b)    

no illegal working compliance order is made (whether or not an

 

application is made for such an order)

 

    

the Secretary of state shall pay compensation to the persons listed in subsection

 

(2).

 

(2)    

The Secretary of State shall pay compensation under subsection (1) to—

 

(a)    

the person to whom the notice was issued or, if he is dead, to his personal

 

representatives;

 

(b)    

a person who lives on the premises (whether habitually or not);

 

(c)    

any person who has an interest in the premises.

 

(3)    

No payment of compensation under this section shall be made unless an

 

application for such compensation has been made to the Secretary of State before

 

the end of the period of two years beginning with the date on which the notice is

 

issued.

 

(4)    

But the Secretary of State may direct that an application for compensation made

 

after the end of that period is to be treated as if it had been made within that period

 

if the Secretary of State considers that there are exceptional circumstances which

 

justify doing so.

Immigration Bill, continued

 
 

(5)    

The question whether there is a right to compensation under this section shall be

 

determined by the Secretary of State.

 

(6)    

If the Secretary of State determines that there is a right to such compensation, the

 

amount of the compensation shall be assessed by an assessor appointed by the

 

Secretary of State.

 

(7)    

In assessing so much of any compensation payable as is attributable to suffering,

 

harm to reputation or similar damage, the assessor must have regard in particular

 

to—

 

(a)    

the conduct of the person to whom the notice was given;

 

(b)    

the conduct of the immigration officer.

 

(8)    

If, having had regard to any matters falling within subsection (9)(a) or (b), the

 

assessor considers that there are exceptional circumstances which justify doing

 

so, the assessor may determine that the amount of compensation payable is to be

 

a nominal amount only.

 

(9)    

The total amount of compensation payable must not exceed the overall

 

compensation limit. That limit is—

 

(a)    

£10,000 in a case in which there is no element for loss of earnings;

 

(b)    

£50,000 in any other case.

 

(10)    

The Secretary of State may by order made by statutory instrument amend

 

subsection (9) so as to vary overall compensation limit.

 

(11)    

No order may be made under subsection (9) unless a draft of the order has been

 

laid before and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.”
