Here is the Public Law Project’s (PLP’s) briefing ahead of the second reading on Monday  18 May in the House of Commons on the Immigration and Social Security Bill (‘the Bill’).

In this briefing on the Bill, we have two key recommendations:

  1. The delegated powers as drafted in the Bill must be narrowed in order to ensure that MPs have the opportunity to scrutinise and debate changes to our immigration and social security laws and that significant policy changes are not left to Ministers alone.
  1. The scrutiny procedures in the Bill must be improved including by removing the power to make regulations using the “made affirmative” procedure.
