The Immigration Bill has now completed its committee stage in the House of Commons, in which the individual clauses of the Bill were considered by a committee of MPs and changes proposed. The amended Bill will now be debated by the full House of Commons at its Report Stage on Tuesday 01 December 2015. MPs will debate the new version of the Bill and consider amendments or new clauses proposed by MPs seeking to make changes.
Individuals and organisations can focus briefings to MPs on issues of concern by asking them to speak about and support amendments to the Bill and by giving reasons and examples in support. ILPA’s briefing on all of the amendments tabled for Report stage is available at: http://www.ilpa.org.uk/resources.php/31585/immigration-bill-ilpa-briefing-for-house-of-commons-report-and-third-reading-1-december-2015 but we highlight some key proposals in this immigration update.
