This parliamentary inquiry, launched on 20 November 2012, will explore the impacts of new rules on family migration. It will specifically focus on changes which make it more difficult to sponsor spouses and partners, or elderly dependents, to come to the UK from outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
The inquiry is led by a cross-party Committee of MPs and peers, coordinated by the APPG on Migration.
Call for written evidence
The inquiry has collected written evidence during an eleven week period beginning on 20 November 2012 and ending on 31 January 2013. We have now closed the submissions for written evidence section of our inquiry.
Call for oral evidence and report
The Committee will also hear from key stakeholders and individuals during two evidence sessions in the House of Commons on 11 February and 4 March 2013. Oral evidence givers will be selected by the inquiry committee.
Based on the parliamentary hearings and submitted evidence, an inquiry report will be published in 2013.
