It would help the Committee if the Minister explained such granting of limited leave to remain. Clause 16 is aimed at people to whom the Government would not want to grant leave to remain, and whom they are in fact attempting to remove—foreign prisoners whom the Government are attempting to deport. Where does their formal leave to remain in the United Kingdom come from and who grants it? Will the Minister explain the legal position so that we can form a view of the merits of allowing such people to work?
