unstar this property answer text <p>Where it is known that an individual seeking entry to the UK is a member of an organisation proscribed under the Terrorism Act 2000, their application for entry clearance can be refused under Part 9 of the Immigration Rules on the basis that their character, conduct or associations make it undesirable to grant them entry to the UK. Applications for leave to enter at the border can be refused on the same grounds.</p><p><br>Individuals may also be excluded from the UK on the basis that it is conducive to the public good.</p><p><br>Members of a foreign government coming to the UK on the official business of their government are exempt from immigration control under section 8(2) of the Immigration Act 1971 and cannot ordinarily be refused entry under the non-conducive provisions of the Immigration Rules, unless the Secretary of State has directed under Article 4(a) of the Immigration (Exemption from Control) Order 1972 that the person shall not be exempt from the provisions of the 1971 Act.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Investigatory Powers Act 2016 created the role of Investigatory Powers Commissioner, who has oversight of all investigatory powers, including the use, by public authorities empowered under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, of covert human intelligence sources. Lord Justice Fulford, the current Commissioner, remarked in his inaugural annual report that his report addresses a number of issues, including “statistics on the use of relevant investigatory powers”.</p><p>The Noble Lady is aware of his commitment to report on the matter of juvenile covert human intelligence sources in more detail this year, including providing more detailed statistics. The Commissioner has said that he will consider how best to report on the issue going forward, and his next annual report will provide further detail of how this matter is being kept under review.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>There are no plans to exempt international healthcare professionals from the requirement to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge. It is right that healthcare professionals subject to immigration control who come to the UK for more than six months make a fair contribution to the running of the NHS, as do other providers of essential public services, including teachers.</p><p>The Government recognises the major contribution that overseas health workers, and other highly skilled professionals make to the UK. Nurses currently benefit from an exemption from the minimum salary threshold for Tier 2 and a number of health professions appear on the Shortage Occupation List.</p><p>In addition, on 6 July 2018 we took action to exempt doctors and nurses entirely from the annual Tier 2 cap that applies to skilled workers. This change means that there is no limit on the number of overseas doctors and nurses needed in the UK who can be sponsored to work here. The Home Secretary has recently made clear that he has no plans to remove that exemption.</p>
