Section 65 of Immigration Act 2014 to commence 6 April 2015
Section 65, the one good bit of the Immigration Act 2014, is due to commence on 6 April 2015: see paragraph 4 of the Immigration Act 2014 (Commencement No. 4, Transitional and Saving Provisions and Amendment) Order 2015 (SI 2015/317). This provision more or less brings to an end the gender discrimination of the British Nationality Act 1981 and is very much to be welcomed. Updated Home Office guidance on section 65 can be found here.
More analysis on the commencement order to follow in a full post but I thought I’d highlight the good news on this bit straightaway.
