Immigration appeal body

The Government will move to bring immigration law into line with European rulings if time permits. A Bill would provide a right of appeal for individuals liable to deportation on grounds of national security, setting up a new body with decision-making powers to consider such appeals. Now, a non- British citizen has no appeal where the Home Secretary regards deportation in the public interest based on national security.
