Select Committee on Delegated Powers and Deregulation Twenty-Seventh Report


ANNEX 5

LETTER FROM THE IMMIGRATION LAW PRACTITIONERS' ASSOCIATION

RE: AMENDMENTS TO IMMIGRATION AND ASYLUM BILL

The Immigration Law Practitioners' Association represents barristers, solicitors and other organisations practising in immigration and asylum law. The Association has worked on the Immigration and Asylum Bill throughout its passage through parliament, commenting on the text of the Bill, and amendments, and suggesting amendments where considered appropriate.

ILPA welcomed the Committee's first report on the Bill, of 7 July 1999 and we are aware that the Committee has been asked to comment on issues within its competence raised by the some 200 government amendments to the Bill tabled at report stage. In the short time available ILPA cannot be sure that it has identified all, or even all of the most important, delegated powers and deregulation issues raised by the new amendments, but we nonetheless offer the attached brief comments which may be of assistance to the Committee. You are of course most welcome to contact ILPA if our comments give rise to further queries.

Rick Scannell
