Examination of post-Brexit
immigration services

In October, the Home Affairs Committee launched an inquiry aiming to explore the capacity of the Home Office and whether it is equipped to cater for Brexit and the challenges it will face in light of the impending changes.

Tomorrow, Tuesday 21 November, the Home Affairs Committee with Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP, Minister of State for Immigration, will be examining the Home Office’s capacity to deliver immigration services post-Brexit in the second evidence session for the inquiry.

The issues that the session is likely to cover include:

• Home Office staff capacity within the immigration directorates
• Efficiency and effectiveness of immigration processes, including IT systems
• Implications of current level of backlogs and issues with decision-making
• Effectiveness of immigration enforcement
• Prospects for post-Brexit immigration arrangements

The Committee may also raise other topical immigration issues with the Minister, including concerns around immigration detention.
