Following on from the session last week in which I and others were called to give evidence to the Home Affairs Committee, a formal inquiry into the Home Office delivery of Brexit has now been launched. Written submissions are invited by the committee and further oral evidence will be heard.

The terms of reference include but are not limited to:

  • Does the Home Office have the capacity to register EU nationals already in the UK?
  • What form should that process take and what risks need to be anticipated?
  • What challenges does Brexit present for the Home Office’s effective management of immigration at the border and how might the Home Office meet them?
  • What different challenges do the ‘no deal’ and ‘transition period’ scenarios pose for the Home Office and how might they be met?
  • Is there scope for the Home Office to streamline existing immigration processes and, if so, in what areas might such efficiencies be found?
  • What challenges does Brexit pose to enforcement of the immigration system?
  • What principles should underpin a future immigration system and to what extent does the existing system meet them?

The deadline for submissions is Monday 6 November 2017.
