Home Office defeat in High Court shows need to fix immigration system

Responding to today’s High Court judgment declaring the Home Office’s £1,012 fee for registering a child as a British citizen unlawful, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Christine Jardine said:


“We owe congratulations and thanks to the campaigners who brought this case on behalf of children who are being denied their rights by these outrageous, extortionate Home Office fees.

“I’ve almost lost count of the number of times this Conservative Government’s immigration policies have been ruled unlawful.

“Instead of wasting taxpayers’ money defending their bad decisions in the courts, Home Office Ministers should get on with fixing our immigration system so everyone is treated with dignity and the public can have confidence that it is fair and effective.”
