UK: controle verhuurders woonruimte; betaalplicht medische zorg ongedocumenteerden

The UK government has announced this week a proposal for a new immigration bill aimed at making it more difficult for undocumented migrants to live in the country, and at addressing the perceived problem of ‘health tourism’ by charging migrants for the use of primary health care services.

Furthermore, under the proposals, private landlords will be required to verify the immigration status of their tenants, with fines applicable to landlords for renting property to undocumented migrants.
