Independent review of such decisions was allowed by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC), but no judicial review of their decisions was permitted. The relevant migration measures in Tony Blair’s 12-point plan to counter terrorism found their way almost verbatim into amendments placed in the House of Commons committee stage of the 2005 Immigration, Asylum and Nationality (IAN) Bill. The changes remained in the final legislation (sections 53–59 of the 2006 Act); for example, section 54 in the 2006 Act states that asylum would be denied to terrorists and to those who encouraged others to commit terrorism and is a direct echo of Point 3 of Blair’s plan.

The extent of the changes to economic migration policy is not, however, easily read across from primary legislation. 1 Indeed, so regular are these changes, that many are not even press-released by the Home Office. This broad distinction means that the majority of migrant workers enter under schemes based on easily amended guidance notes. The exact date when a new, more pro-active economic migration policy was introduced is difficult to judge. However, the benefit of hindsight suggests that late 2000 and early 2001 was a crucial period.

The legislation that followed, the 2002 Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act, and later the 2004 Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc) Act and the 2006 Immigration, Asylum and Nationality (IAN) Act deviates little from the ideas in the 2002 White Paper. The legislation emphasised control, with an increasingly tough stance on asylum and measures to combat unauthorised immigration, but upheld the value of economic migration. The 2002 Act did not reaffirm the 1999 Act’s ‘covenant’ with asylum seekers, but set out to build a seamless management system, along with strong enforcement powers (Flynn, 2003).
