Applicants: Immigration Bill introduced

10 October 2013

The government has announced the introduction of the Immigration Bill on Thursday 10 October 2013.

The bill will reform the removals and appeals system, making it easier and quicker to remove those who have no right to be here. It will end the abuse of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights - the right to respect for private and family life. It will prevent illegal migrants accessing or abusing public services and the labour market.

For further details see the Immigration Bill on the GOV.UK website. The progress of the bill and explanatory notes can be found on the Parliament website.
