New clause 28—Information to applicants on the outcome of the automated residency check—

“At the same time as an applicant to the EU Settlement Scheme receives a wholly or partially unsuccessful result from the automated residency check, the Secretary of State must provide the applicant with—

(a) the periods of time during which the Secretary of State accepts that the applicant was resident;

(b) the periods of time during which the data do not evidence residence;

(c) the data processed by the automated residency check;

(d) information on the process that was applied to the data in paragraph (c) to produce the periods of time as set out in paragraphs (a) and (b).”

This new clause would mean information was given immediately to an applicant who was informed that the automated residency check result for the EU Settlement Scheme was not successful.
