The UK government is keen “ensure that measures in the forthcoming Immigration Bill do not result in unlawful discrimination,” Lord Taylor of Holbeach has said in a written response to Baroness Hamwee.
Baroness Hamwee sought to know how the government intended to ensure that the immigration document checks which are the subject of recent consultations and proposed to be included in the forthcoming Immigration Bill do not result in unlawful discrimination.
She also sought to know whether the government intended to issue a code of practice for primary healthcare providers and for private landlords in carrying out those checks.
Lord Taylor of Holbeach said: “The consultations on these proposals have now closed and we are considering the responses received. Full consultation reports and impact assessments will be published in due course.”
