Robin Allen QC and Dee Masters were instructed over the summer by The Legal Education Foundation (TLEF) to consider the equality implications of artificial intelligence and automated decision-making in government, in particular, through consideration of the Settled Status scheme and the use of a Risk-Based verification (RBV) systems. 

The paper was finished in September 2019 and ultimately concluded that there is a very real possibility that the current use of governmental automated decision-making is breaching the existing equality law framework in the UK. 

TLEF decided to make the opinion public and a copy is now available here
A short blog summarising the advice is also available here.
