Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill, continued

 
 

(2)    

After section 3(2) insert—

 

“(2A)    

Any statement of the rules, or of any changes to the rules, which affect

 

the rights and obligations of persons who will lose their right of freedom

 

of movement under the provisions of the Immigration and Social

 

Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Act may not be made or have

 

effect unless the Secretary of State has complied with subsections (2B) to

 

(2F) below.

 

(2B)    

If the Secretary of State proposes to make changes to the rules under

 

section (2A) above, the Secretary of State must lay before parliament a

 

document that—

 

(a)    

explains the proposal; and

 

(b)    

sets it out in the form of a draft order.

 

(2C)    

During the period of 60 days beginning with the day on which the

 

document was laid under subsection (2B) (the “60-day period”), the

 

Secretary of State may not lay before Parliament a draft order to give

 

effect to the proposal (with or without modification).

 

(2D)    

In preparing a draft order under section (2A) above, the Secretary of State

 

must have regard to any of the following that are made with regard to the

 

draft order during the 60-day period—

 

(a)    

any representations; and

 

(b)    

any recommendations of a committee of either House of

 

Parliament charged with reporting on the draft order.

 

(2E)    

When laying before Parliament a draft order to give effect to the proposal

 

(with or without modifications), the Secretary of State must also lay a

 

document that explains any changes made to the proposal contained in

 

the document under subsection (2B).

 

(2F)    

In calculating the 60-day period, no account is to be taken of any time

 

during which Parliament is dissolved or prorogued or during which either

 

House is not adjourned for more than 4 days.”.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This new clause would amend the Immigration Act 1971 to ensure that any changes to the UK’s

 

Immigration Rules which affect EEA or Swiss nationals must be made under the super affirmative

 

procedure.

(1)    

When a person whose right of free movement is removed by the provisions of this

 

Act makes an application for settled or pre-settled status, that person may make

 

an appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) if—

NC11

 

Parliamentary Star    

To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Hostile environment and EEA nationals

 

(1)    

This section applies where EEA nationals and Swiss nationals, and their family

 

members, are subject to legislation and regulations encompassing the “hostile

 

environment”.

 

(2)    

The Secretary of State must make provision to ensure that, under the hostile

 

environment measures, EEA nationals and Swiss nationals and their family

 

members are treated no less favourably than British citizens in an equivalent

 

position, until the number of people registered for settled status reaches 3 million

 

people or until 30 June 2021, whichever is later.

 

(3)    

For the purposes of this section, the “hostile environment” comprises the

 

following measures, including all regulations, policies, and guidance issued

 

pursuant or relating to them—

 

(a)    

sections 20 to 47 of the Immigration Act 2014;

 

(b)    

sections 34 to 45 of the Immigration Act 2016;

 

(c)    

sections 15 to 25 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006;

 

(d)    

section 175 of the National Health Service Act 2006; and

 

(e)    

schedule 2, paragraph 4, of the Data Protection Act 2018.”

This new clause would prevent the hostile environment from being applied to EEA nationals, Swiss

 

nationals, or their family members until the number of people registered for settled status reaches

 

3 million or 30 June 2021, whichever is later.
