English Language Requirements Ruling

16 December 2011 McGill & Co Solicitors Legal Posts

The High Court has today dismissed a challenge to laws that require immigrant spouses to be able to speak English in order to live in the UK. Three couples had challenged the rules which were introduced in November 2010.

But Mr Justice Beatson ruled the new language test was not a disproportionate interference with the couples' right to family life.

Immigration Minister Damian Green said: "We believe it is entirely reasonable that someone intending to live in the UK should understand English, so that they can integrate and participate fully in our society.

"We are very pleased that the courts agree with us."
