The Law Commission’s Consultation Paper on Simplification of the Immigration Rules was published on 21st January 2019. The consultation paper reviews the Immigration Rules in order to identify the underlying causes of their complexity, and to identify principles under which they can be redrafted to make them simpler and more accessible. It makes a number of preliminary proposals to pave the way for the introduction and maintenance of clear, comprehensible and logically organised Rules, and asks whether consultees agree. It also seeks the views of consultees on more open questions.
The deadline has been extended and consultees are invited to respond to the paper by 3rd May 2019.
The consultation paper can be downloaded from our website at https://www.lawcom.gov.uk/project/simplifying-the-immigration-rules/. It is published alongside a summary, which is available in both English and Welsh.
There is an online portal available for responses.
