British Nationality: Children

Question for Home Office

UIN 74736, tabled on 15 July 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 20 January 2020 to Question 3311, what steps she is taking in response to the High Court judgement in Project for the Registration of British Citizens as Children and others v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019] EWHC 3536 (Admin) of 19 December 2019.

The Secretary of State for the Home Department has been granted

permission to appeal against the Court’s finding which means the case

remains on-going and we will therefore continue to charge Child Registration fees as set out in the Fees Regulations.

While this court case remains active it would not be right to speculate on next steps and potential courses of action.
