Ian Blackford MP has called on the Prime Minister to scrap the fees for young people who face losing their ‘lawfully resident’ status because they simply can’t afford the paperwork.

The SNP Westminster Leader said Home Office fees have increased by 148% since 2014, targeting people who have the right to be here and call the UK home.

Mr Blackford has previously raised the issue with Theresa May and has requested a meeting to resolve the injustice. 

Commenting, Ian Blackford MP said:

“This government is guilty of creating a generation of undocumented citizens, without the rights that many of us take for granted – yet for the second time, the Prime Minister seemingly failed to grasp the issue I was raising.

“We are talking about young people who live here, who have to wait ten years and pay up to £10,000 to achieve permanent right to remain.

“The Prime Minister must change her policies which target innocent young people, and I seek to meet with her to resolve this injustice.”
