A comprehensive guide to the Immigration Act 2016 has been published. Produced in association with the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association (ILPA), the book summarises each provision of the new law, setting it within its political and legal context and providing legal references, details of published secondary legislation and guidance, supporting materials and statements from parliamentary debates.
The book is aimed at immigration law solicitors, barristers and other practitioners, as well as for criminal, housing and community care lawyers. Scholars of the ‘hostile environment’, including social scientists, political theorists, parliamentarians and their staff will also find it handy, say publishers Bloomsbury Professional.
Written by ILPA barristers Alison Harvey and Zoe Harper, who worked on all aspects of the Act during its passage through parliament, it includes:
- an introduction to the Act
- an explanation of what is in force
- section by section commentary with details of commencement, amendments affected by the section
- secondary legislation, guidance
- statements made by ministers in parliament
- application to the devolved administrations
- a comprehensive list of legal and policy materials relating to the Act
