An error has been identified in the written answer given on 11 June 2019.

The correct answer should have been:

Guidance on the automated checks process has been published on gov.uk and a copy of this will be placed in the Library.

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/eu-settlement-scheme-uk-tax-and-benefits-records-automated-check.

The rules for assessing continuous residence are already set out in the Immigration Rules. The automated checks simply apply these principles to the data provided by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs and The Department for Work and Pensions. The automated checks replace the need, where data exists, for an applicant to submit any other forms of evidence.
