Update 24/Feb/2012 : The provenance of Surinder Singh - http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/european-ruling-challenges-uk-immigration-law-1531867.html
(8/July/1992) A RULING by the European Community's highest court yesterday has questioned the legality of a key principle of British immigration law.
It has undermined the 'primary purpose rule' enshrined 10 years ago in the Immigration Act, which lays down that when foreigners married to British citizens come to live in this country, they must prove that the marriage's primary purpose was not just to win the right of residence.
This controversial rule is much stricter than the equivalent European Community principle, which allows all EC citizens to bring spouse and children with them when they move to another EC country, no matter what the primary purpose of the marriage.
