Review on free movement of persons for the government's review of the balance of competences between the UK and the EU.
The government carried out a review of the balance of competences between the EU and the UK. This is an audit of what the EU does and how it affects the UK and will be carried out over four semesters between Autumn 2012 and Autumn 2014.
The Home Office is leading on 2 reports which are in the following areas:
- asylum and immigration
- free movement of persons
The free movement of persons report is being jointly led with the Department for Work and Pensions.
The calls for evidence for both of these reports were launched on 16 May 2013, seeking views on how competence is used and what that means for Britain from individuals and groups with an interest or experience in these areas, and closed on 5 August 2013.
The balance of competences review is led jointly by the Cabinet Office and Foreign and Commonwealth Office. You can find out more about the review on the GOV.UK website.
