I’ve got this funny feeling of déjà vu…..

Here’s the full beast of the agreement Draft Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community

To me on a quick glance last night, on social security and right to reside, it is basically plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose which is slightly surprising. Articles 13, 15 and 51 refer.

Normally the @commonslibrary would produce a Bill Paper setting it out clause-by-clause ahead of 2nd reading. I hope people will forgive us for not doing this for the WAB. Instead you’ll see a series of shorter Insight pieces in next couple of days from our specialists. (1/3)

New regs: Immigration (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

Explanatory memo says:

The United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 31 October 2019. The purpose of the instrument is to ensure that, in the event of a no deal exit, EU free movement law (which, for the time being, will be retained in UK law by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018) will operate effectively. Most of the changes come into force on exit day.

The instrument addresses deficiencies that arise in retained EU free movement law from exit. It makes changes relating to:

• The documentation acceptable for entry to the UK;
• The grounds on which a decision can be made to restrict admission to or residence in the UK of a European Economic Area (EEA) citizen or their family member;
• The scope to acquire permanent residence in the UK under EU law; and
• The scope for UK nationals returning to the UK from an EEA Member State or Switzerland to be accompanied by their family members under EU law.

New Statement of changes to the Immigration Rules reflects changes required if the UK leaves the EU on 31 October 2019 without a deal.

Explanatory memorandum summarises the changes - that include to -

‘Provide access to the EU Settlement Scheme for certain categories of family members joining an EEA citizen resident here before Brexit with applications by such family members able to rely on residence in the UK which began after Brexit, and to reflect the deadline by when applications by such family members will need to be made; and

Establish the European Temporary Leave to Remain Scheme, for EEA citizens, and their close family members, moving to the UK after a ‘no deal’ Brexit and before the start of the new points-based immigration system from January 2021’

Budget’s been cancelled ...

Parliament has voted for a delay to the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, so the Government is now calling for a General Election. I can therefore confirm that I have decided not to bring forward the Budget on the 6 November.

Laura Pidcock asked an urgent question in parliament yesterday about worker’s rights after Brexit. According to Andrea Leadsom -

Under the terms of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, all existing workers’ rights laws will be transferred into domestic law once we have left the EU, making sure there is no gap or lack of clarity in the minimum set of workers’ rights which, as I have already said, the UK exceeds in many areas. We are also including in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill a new requirement that every Bill brought before this place in the future that affects workers’ rights will include a statement by the Government of the day on how it impacts workers’ rights. This will ensure that Parliament always has its say. The Government have also published clauses that will require every Government, now and in the future, to monitor new EU legislation covering employment and workplace health and safety standards, and to report on those changes to Parliament so that Parliament can again have its say.

Someone at Citizens Advice has just highlighted something extremely useful for older people looking to apply for Settled Status.

Within the document titled ‘government records we use to confirm your UK residence’ on the gov.uk webpage EU Settlement Scheme: UK tax and benefits records automated check, there is a section headed ‘Pension records’ which in turn states:

If the automated check finds that you receive a State Pension or New State Pension and are currently in the UK, you’ll be offered settled status without needing to provide further information about your residence.

So despite this being in official guidance, a 95-year-old man who has lived in the UK for 68 years and who does receive a State Pension has been told he needs to supply extra evidence for his Settled Status application.
