Immigration Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments — 26 Apr 2016 at 16:30

Moved by Earl Howe

59A: Because appropriate measures which govern asylum seekers’ ability to work are already in place.

Moved by Lord Alton of Liverpool

59B: Insert the following new Clause-“Asylum seekers: permission to work after nine months(1) The Immigration Act 1971 is amended as follows.(2) After section 3(9) (general provisions for regulation and control) insert-“(10) In making rules under subsection (2), the Secretary of State must provide for persons seeking asylum, within the meaning of the rules, to apply to the Secretary of State for permission to take up employment, including self-employment and voluntary work.(11) Permission to work for persons seeking asylum must be granted if-(a) a decision has not been taken on the applicant’s asylum application within nine months of the date on which it was recorded, or(b) an individual makes further submissions which raise asylum grounds and a decision on that new claim or to refuse to treat such further submissions as a new claim has not been taken within nine months of the date on which the submissions were recorded.(12) Permission for a person seeking asylum to take up employment shall be on terms no less favourable than those upon which permission is granted to a person recognised as a refugee to take up employment.””

Ayes 157, Noes 217.
