Immigration Act 2014

Examinations by designated person

408.Paragraph 2 of this Schedule allows for powers of examination exercisable by an immigration officer to be exercised by a designated person.

409.Paragraphs 2(1) and (2) amend paragraph 3 of Schedule 2 to the 1971 Act to allow a “designated person” to exercise the power of examination in relation to any person who is embarking or seeking to embark in the UK.

410.Paragraph 2(3) replaces sub-paragraph (1A) of paragraph 3 of Schedule 2 so that, whether the initial examination is undertaken by an immigration officer or designated person, a person so examined may be required by notice in writing given by an immigration officer, to submit to further examination.
