Holding answer received on 22 June 2015

New family Immigration Rules were implemented on 9 July 2012 to prevent burdens on the taxpayer, promote integration and tackle abuse. We have continued to keep them under review and to make adjustments in light of feedback on their operation and impact. We have also taken into account the findings of the courts, including the Court of Appeal judgment upholding the lawfulness of the minimum income threshold for sponsoring family migrants under the new rules. This ongoing review process will continue.
