  • The supposed purpose of the r to r legislation is presumably to deny shelter to those with no right to be in the UK, it won’t work, illegals will find a way around the problem. If the purpose was detection, investigation, and deportation it would be much better to follow the principles in the anti-money laundering legislation where a suspicion, note not knowledge, of ineligibility has to be reported and specificaly without giving the subject waarning or “tippping off”.
