Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) Common Travel Area (Northern Ireland) — 1 Apr 2009 at 18:31

Amendment 55B

Moved by Lord Smith of Clifton

55B: After Clause 48, insert the following new Clause-

"Entry otherwise than by sea or air: immigration control

In section 10 of the Immigration Act 1971 (c. 77) (entry otherwise than by sea or air), after subsection (1A), insert-

"(1AB) An Order in Council made under subsection (1) must not include provision relating to immigration control.""

This amendment would prevent the Government from establishing immigration control at the land border between Eire and Northern Ireland.
