Immigration: Polygamy

Volume 501: debated on Tuesday 24 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department with reference to the answer to Lord Pearson of Rannoch of 21 July 2009, Official Report, House of Lords, columns 301-02WA, on polygamy, whether officials in his Department have now determined whether changes to the UK Border Agency's entry clearance guidance are required in the context of polygamous marriages.

I have amended the current entry clearance guidance (SET 14.8) to read that any case where there is evidence to suspect a divorce of convenience should be referred to entry clearance support team for consideration and advice.
