Written Answers — Home Office: Passports: EU Countries (1 Sep 2020)

Kevin Foster: There are no plans to waive any passport fees after the transition period.

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Immigration: no recourse to public funds (18 Jun 2020)

Diana R. Johnson:, immigration application fees and the health surcharge. It is calculated that if a family started their 10-year settlement journey in 2012, assuming they were not successful in getting fee waivers, and fees did not increase again, a single mum with two children would be expected to pay more than £23,000 for the family to settle in 10 years.

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (18 May 2020)

Kevin Foster: .... The reaction to the coronavirus emergency shows why that is necessary. Imagine our having to pass primary legislation to amend visa end dates, automatically renew NHS workers’ visas, grant waivers to in-country route-swapping conditions or allow tier 4 sponsors to move courses online. Hence this Bill, in common with those on this subject that came before it, does not replicate the...

If your MoT was due on 29 March, for instance, and you did not get it, then you are not entitled to the waiver. Yet the lockdown was announced on 23 March. Why this hiatus of a week?
