The Home Office has recently launched three consultations seeking views on proposed immigration legislation.

Proposals on healthcare provision and privately rented accommodation for migrants were published 3 July 2013. On 9 July 2013, the Home Office then published proposals for tougher sanctions against employers who exploit illegal migrants.

On the 23 July 2013, Penningtons hosted a meeting for the Immigration Law Practitioners Association (ILPA), where members attended to discuss and to provide feedback on all three consultations.
