New consultation on changes to the Tribunal Procedure (First-tier Tribunal) (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) Rules 2014

The Tribunal Procedure Committee (TPC) is interested to receive your views on changes arising from the Immigration Act 2016, in particular to a number of changes to bail, which the Tribunal Procedure Committee considers may make amendments to the rules relating to bail applications desirable.

The Immigration Act 2016 (“the 2016 Act”) received Royal Assent on 12 May 2016. It makes significant changes to the substantive law relating to immigration and asylum, including provisions relating to access to services, facilities, licences and work by reference to immigration status. It makes provision for the Director of Labour Market Enforcement; introduces language requirements for public sector workers; amends fees for passports and civil registration; and deals with assorted connected matters.

Much of this is beyond the scope of the TPC’s work, which is only in respect to the tribunals’ procedure rules. The 2016 Act, however, includes a number of changes relating to bail, which the TPC considers may make amendments to the rules relating to bail applications desirable.

This consultation sets out these potential changes and seeks the view of stakeholders on them.
