Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the operation of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006; and what recent representations he has received about the operation of that Act. (95125)

The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 received Royal Assent on 31 March 2006.

We are carrying out a phased commencement of the Act. Managing the sections which have still to be commenced are linked to the implementation of the new Points-Based Scheme and the e-Borders Programme.

Representations on individual provisions of the Act are not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
