"Stay on directions for removal
     1. If a person in the United Kingdom appeals under section 2(1) above on being refused leave to enter, any directions previously given by virtue of the refusal for his removal from the United Kingdom cease to have effect, except in so far as they have already been carried out, and no directions may be so given so long as the appeal is pending.
 
     2. If a person in the United Kingdom appeals under section 2(1) above against any directions given under Part I of Schedule 2 or Schedule 3 to the 1971 Act for his removal from the United Kingdom, those directions except in so far as they have already been carried out, have no effect while the appeal is pending.
 
     3. But the provisions of Part I of Schedule 2 or, as the case may be, Schedule 3 to the 1971 Act with respect to detention and persons liable to detention apply to a person appealing under section 2(1) above as if there were in force directions for his removal from the United Kingdom, except that he may not be detained on board a ship or aircraft so as to compel him to leave the United Kingdom while the appeal is pending.
 
     3A. In calculating the period of two months limited by paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 2 to the 1971 Act for the giving of directions under that paragraph for the removal of a person from the United Kingdom and for the giving of a notice of intention to give such directions, any period during which there is pending an appeal by him under section 2(1) above is to be disregarded.
 
     3B. If directions are given under Part I of Schedule 2 or Schedule 3 to the 1971 Act for anyone's removal from the United Kingdom, and directions are also so given for the removal with him of persons belonging to his family, then if any of them appeals under section 2(1) above, the appeal has the same effect under paragraphs 1 to 3A in relation to the directions given in respect of each of the others as it has in relation to the directions given in respect of the appellant.
 
 
Suspension of variation of limited leave
     3C. A variation is not to take effect while an appeal is pending under section 2(1) above against the variation.
 
 
Continuation of leave
     3D. - (1) While an appeal under section 2(1) above is pending, the leave to which the appeal relates, and any conditions subject to which it was granted continue to have effect.
 
      (2) A person may not make an application for a variation of his leave to enter or remain while that leave is treated as continuing to have effect as a result of sub-paragraph (1).
 
      (3) For the purposes of section 2(1), in calculating whether, as a result of a decision, a person may be required to leave the United Kingdom within twenty-eight days, a continuation of leave under this paragraph is to be disregarded.
 
 
Deportation orders
     3E. A deportation order is not to be made against a person under section 5 of the 1971 Act while an appeal duly brought under section 2(1) above against the decision to make it is pending.
 
     3F. In calculating the period of eight weeks set by section 5(3) of the 1971 Act for making a deportation order against a person as belonging to the family of another person, there is to be disregarded any period during which an appeal under section 2(1) above against the decision to make the order is pending.
 
 
Appeals under section 2A
     3G. - (1) A person is not to be required to leave, or be removed from, the United Kingdom if an appeal under section 2A is pending against the decision on which that requirement or removal would otherwise be based.
 
      (2) That does not prevent-
 
 
    (a) directions for his removal being given during that period;
 
    (b) a deportation order being made against him during that period.
      (3) But no such direction or order is to have effect during that period."
 
     126. In Schedule 2, in paragraph 4, for "the Immigration Act 1971 as applied by paragraphs 1 to 3 above" substitute "this Schedule"
 
     127. In Schedule 2, omit paragraph 5.
 
     128. In Schedule 2, for paragraphs 6 and 7 substitute-
 
 

"Notice of appealable decision and statement of appeal rights etc.
     6. Paragraph 1 of Schedule 4 to the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 has effect as if section 2 of this Act were contained in Part IV of that Act.
 
 
Financial support for organisations helping persons with rights of appeal
     7. Section 78 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 shall have effect as if section 2 above were contained in Part IV of that Act."
