With this it will be convenient to discuss new clause 36—Legal Aid—

“(1) The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 is amended in accordance with subsection 2.

(2) In Schedule 1, paragraph 30, after sub-paragraph (d), insert—

‘(e) The Immigration and Social Security (EU Withdrawal) Act 2019.’”

This new clause would allow individuals to seek legal aid in order to obtain advice on right to enter and remain under this Act.
