The Alliance welcomes the publication of the General Scheme of the International Protection Bill 2015 and the opportunity to be consulted on the Scheme by the Joint Committee on Justice, Equality and Defence. The Scheme has many positives, including the introduction of a single procedure for international protection applicants to replace the existing multi-layered system, and the inclusion of ‘child-specific’ forms of persecution as ground for protection. The Scheme’s proposals provide an important improvement to the existing legislative provisions.
