As this method worked so successfully last time, I just want to say that these are minor technical amendments to schedules 7 and 8, which set out the commissioner’s complaints and deaths remits respectively. The amendments add a reference to section 36 of the UK Borders Act 2007, which provides for the detention of foreign national prisoners on the  completion of their sentence. The amendments were necessary because of the new immigration legislation appearing on the statute book and on that basis I hope that the Committee can be persuaded to support them.
