FAMILY IMMIGRATION RULES

That this House recognises the important economic and cultural benefits of immigration; notes that the Government's plans to increase the income threshold at which UK citizens can bring a spouse to the country to £18,600 (£27,200 with three children) will deprive many residents of towns like Bradford, where 21 per cent of households have incomes under £15,000 per year, of the right to a family life; believes that the right to a family life should not be contingent on earnings; further notes several reports from the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration which call into question the quality of decision making on family immigration cases; and therefore calls for the Government to review its plans both to increase the income threshold at which UK citizens can bring a spouse to the country to £18,600 (£27,200 with three children) and to remove the right of appeal against the refusal of family visitor visas.
