Lord Alton’s tabled amendment
We are grateful for the amendment to the Immigration Bill 2015 tabled by Lord Alton. This particular amendment is intended to highlight the situation of young persons who have been in care and are without any status. Some of these young persons were born in the UK and others have lived here for almost all their lives and could have been registered as British and/or their stay regularised by a grant of leave to remain or indefinite leave to remain.
