Lizanne Zietsman, Isle of Arran

Volume 667: debated on Monday 4 November 2019

The petition of residents of North Ayrshire and Arran,

Declares that we are deeply concerned by the UK Home Office’s decision to refuse Lizanne Zietsman leave to remain in the UK; further that Lizanne has settled on the Island of Arran with her Scottish-born husband and has built a successful business employing local residents; further that she is a valued and respected member of the Arran community which is bewildered and dismayed that the UK Home Office has rejected her application to stay in the UK; and further that an online petition on this matter has received over 16,069 signatures.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Home Office to grant Lizanne leave to remain in the UK so that she can continue to contribute to the Isle of Arran community.

And the petitioners remain, etc. —[Presented by Patricia Gibson, Official Report, 9 July 2019; Vol. 663, c. 284.]
