2005, who are their children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents, spouses, civil

 

or unmarried partners or siblings.

 

(2)    

Rules made under subsection (1) may—

 

(a)    

make provision for dependants of the persons therein mentioned;

 

(b)    

make provision for a person who the Secretary of State is satisfied was

 

a dependant of the refugee or person granted humanitarian protection or

 

a member of their household at the time the refugee or person granted

 

humanitarian protection left the country of his habitual residence;

 

(c)    

restrict provision for siblings applying to join family in the UK to those

 

who have not formed their own independent family unit outside of the

 

UK.

 

(3)    

Family members seeking leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom must—

 

(a)    

be applicants who would not be excluded from protection by virtue of

 

article 1F of the United Nations Convention and Protocol relating to the

 

Status of Refugees if he were to seek asylum in his own right;

 

(b)    

be applicants who would not be excluded from humanitarian protection

 

for any reason in the immigration rules in the United Kingdom.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment would allow those separated from their family, and who have refugee or

 

humanitarian protection status in the UK, to sponsor family members beyond spouses or under-18

 

children to join them. It would also remedy an anomaly that prevents children with refugee status

 

in the UK from sponsoring their parents to join them.
