EHRC HoL briefing on the Immigration Bill

Equality and Human Rights Commission

1 min read Partner content

The Equality and Human Rights Commission as given written evidence to the House of Lords on the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill, for Committee Stage debate which starts today.

Our evidence recommends strengthening the Bill in four priority areas to help safeguard equality and human rights:

  • Protecting Parliament’s role in scrutinising the UK’s equality and human rights legal framework, by narrowing the scope of delegated powers and improving transparency and scrutiny
  • Ensuring that equality and human rights laws that are derived from EU directives continue to be recognised and available in domestic law
  • Ensuring immigration detention is used only as a time time-limited measure of last resort
  • Protecting access to essential public services by preventing data sharing for immigration enforcement purposes
