§ Mr. Fraser
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will propose an amendment to the immigration rules in order to continue leave to take employment for a migrant who, having had leave to remain and work in the United Kingdom, applies in good time for a renewal of that leave and make interim provision for the period between the expiry of the old leave and any grant or refusal of new leave. 
§ Mr. Kirkhope
No amendment is necessary. The Variation of Leave Order 1976 provides that, when a person applies for an extension of stay before the expiry of his leave, the conditions attached to that leave continue until the application is resolved.
