To ask Her Majesty's Government, in considering visa applications by foreign nationals citing the European Convention on Human Rights Article 8 right to a family life, whether it is the right of the applicant or that of the applicant's family and associates in the United Kingdom that it is taken into account when deciding on their entitlement to enter or reside in the United Kingdom; and, in the case of family, whether different weightings are applied to differing types of relationship or blood ties.
A visa application citing Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights must meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules. The rules take account of the right to respect for family life of both the applicant and the family member they are applying to join in the UK. The rules do not apply different weightings to different types of family relationship. From
