Motion text

That this House notes that some Iraqi Kurds have been deprived of their British passports by the Home Office on the grounds that their names and birth dates are inaccurate; further notes that this is the case for those who fled from Saddam Hussein's dictatorship and who feared, in the event of their being returned to Iraq, a prison sentence or execution; and considers that the Home Office should recognise their original and understandable caution given real threats and fears and, as it has done with others in the past, adopt a policy of regularising the status of those affected by aligning such data between their Iraqi and British documents or an equivalent solution.
