HC Deb 24 February 1999 vol 326 c309W
Fiona Mactaggart

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if hon. Members and their staff who give immigration advice or perform immigration services are exempt persons under the meaning of Clause 63(4)(a) or (b) of the Immigration and Asylum Bill 1999. [72148]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

Hon. Members and their staff may provide immigration advice in the course of their Parliamentary work without needing to meet any of the requirements of Clause 63 of the Immigration and Asylum Bill because under Clause 61(2)(b), such advice is not provided in the course of a business.
