Opposition Day — [6th allotted day] — National Insurance Numbers and Illegal Immigrants — 16 Jan 2008 at 15:25
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
I beg to move,
That this House expresses its very great concern that National Insurance numbers appear to have been issued to illegal immigrants.
I beg to move, To leave out from 'House' to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof:
"welcomes the new checks and controls the Government has introduced to reduce illegal working by foreign nationals, which include measures to prevent illegal immigrants being issued with national insurance numbers."
Question put, That the original words stand part of the Question:-
