(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order brings into force fully on 1st December 2004 and 4th January 2005 certain provisions of the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Act 2004 (“the Act”).
The Order also brings into force on 1st December 2004 certain sections of the Act but only for the purpose of enabling the Secretary of State to exercise specified powers to make subordinate legislation or to enable guidance to be made and issued.
The Order modifies section 9 of the Act (which it also brings into force), to take into account the fact that section 44 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, which amends section 94 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, is not yet in force.
