unstar this property answer text <p>This report shows why we need an immigration system that is fair to British citizens and legitimate migrants and tough on those who abuse the system and flout the law. We are working across government to ensure the immigration system works in the national interest and will use the findings of this report, including those in respect of labour market regulation, to inform our approach. The Government has already taken action to increase the maximum penalty for National Minimum Wage underpayment from £5,000 to £20,000 per employer, and will now introduce primary legislation so that the penalty can be applied on a per worker basis, substantially increasing the penalty employers have to pay. The Government will also consult on banning ‘overseas only’ recruitment practices by employment agencies to ensure that UK natives have the opportunity to apply for all jobs based here.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>Uganda is a signatory to the London Scheme for Extradition within the Commonwealth and is categorised as a Category 2 country for the purposes of the Extradition Act 2003. It is required to provide prima facie evidence in support of any extradition request.The Category 2 designation does not in itself amount to a simplified extradition procedure. When deciding an extradition case the court must consider any relevant Human Rights concerns. If the court believes a person’s rights under the European Convention on Human Rights would be breached, they must discharge the request.</p><p /> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has a legal duty to endeavour to trace the families of unaccompanied asylum seeking children and to take into account their best interests. In response to safeguarding concerns arising from reports that Albanian adults were falsely claiming to be children, and in order to facilitate the family tracing process, the Home Office piloted a process in late 2013 whereby information relevant to family tracing and confirming identity was obtained from the Albanian authorities in respect of 215 individuals. In all of these cases, the asylum claims had been refused and the Albanian authorities had not been the alleged actor of persecution. The piloted process became business as usual with effect from 29 January 2014. Checks are only conducted under this process if such a step will not jeopardise the safety of the child and their family. The Albanian authorities are provided with the names, dates of birth, identity numbers, places of birth, addresses and contact numbers for the child and their parents. Published Home Office guidance stipulates that the child should be informed shortly after point of claim for asylum that the Home Office will take appropriate steps to endeavour to trace their families.</p>

It will not be possible to confirm total cost to that date, or the estimate of remaining costs, until the binding arbitration following the termination of the contract with RSL is complete and we have been advised that it is legally appropriate.The Home Office initiated arbitration proceedings on 18 August 2010. The Home Office would like the dispute with RSL to be concluded as swiftly as possible. It is not unusual that an international arbitration of this complexity should take a considerable time to resolve.
