Iain Halliday is a lawyer at McGill & Co, a Scottish law firm specialising in immigration and citizenship law. Iain is also Deputy Coordinator of the Immigration and Asylum Committee of the Law Society of Scotland and has been involved in writing briefs to the Westminster and Holyrood Parliamentary Committees. The company rejects the proposal, saying it remains extremely concerned about the protection of human rights, data protection rights and civil liberties in general. After officially leaving the EU in March 2019, UK and EU negotiators agreed that there would be a “transition” period during which the UK will continue to have the same obligations as an EU member. The EU and the UK government have accepted the deal, but the UK Parliament has yet to vote on whether to accept it or not. These are reflected in section 11 of the Act, which provides a power to make regulations (including Henry VIII`s powers) granting a right of appeal against certain “civil rights immigration decisions”. Uk courts “may” take into account the case law of the Court of Justice rendered after the end of the transition if they so wish. The same applies to EU legislation after the transition. But they don`t have to. It is essentially up to the UK judges to decide whether and to what extent certain provisions of EU law should apply to the UK after Brexit. In the short term, the free movement of people between the UK and the EU is to continue until the end of 2020 after leaving the EU in March 2019 (provided that Parliament approves the WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE UK and the EU). So, in order to know which new EU cases are relevant to UK immigration law, we need to keep an eye on UK case law.
EU affairs will not automatically be relevant as they are now. “It doesn`t hurt to do these things because they will be necessary no matter what.” Discussions will take place on the future relationship between the UK and the EU after 31 December 2020. The prospect of a future no-deal Brexit is often referred to as a no-deal Brexit. Business groups said delays at the border are inevitable given impending changes in customs procedures, while Labour said “glaring questions” about what companies should do remain unanswered. “The government is imposing a burden on businesses to prepare for the end of the transition period if it has not explained what these companies are preparing for,” said Shadow Minister Rachel Reeves.
