Motion text

That this House expresses grave concern with the actions of the UK Visas and Immigration service in respect of threatening Canadian national Marleen Baldwin, a 73 year-old woman who is recovering from surgery, with forcible removal from the UK; notes that the Home Office has decided to arbitrarily advance curtailment of her leave to remain to the extent that she is now effectively required to leave the UK immediately; further notes that this elderly lady is a home owner of independent means settled in Scotland and widely recognised to be an upstanding member of her community; and utterly condemns the callous, uncaring and egregious manner in which this genteel lady is being treated by the UK Government despite her having done everything possible to categorically demonstrate her legitimate right to remain indefinitely in the UK.
