The Government remains committed to an immigration policy which welcomes and celebrates people to the UK through safe and legal routes but deters illegal immigration. The Immigration Rules already provide for undocumented migrants to regularise their status.

The Immigration Rules are kept under continuous review and adjusted where necessary in light of feedback, impact and the findings of the courts.
