Income Threshold For Family Visas

EDM number 193 in 2014-15, proposed by Alan Meale on 30/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Immigration and Incomes and poverty.

That this House is aware that as a result of rule changes British citizens wishing to sponsor their non-EU husband or wife to join them in the UK must now earn at least £18,600 per annum; is concerned that these rules have priced out some citizens from being able to live with their spouse or partners because of their low earnings in employment; believes that the less well-off should not be discriminated in such a way; and calls on the Government to immediately stop such unfair practices.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
