Singhroute.info - Surinder Singh route information :

On the 7th July 1992, in the case of Surinder Singh Case C-370/90, the ruling was passed that if an EU national works and lives in another member state, along with their spouse (or as the case may be other family member), then upon return to ‘his’ country of nationality, that country cannot refuse to grant entry, and a right of residence upon that persons spouse (or other family member as the case may be).

Some people have called this a “loophole” in the law.  However, let us make this clear: THIS IS NOT A LOOPHOLE.  This is a right that is bestowed upon any citizen of the EU/EEA.  Under Section 3(2) of the European Communities Act 1972, judgments of the EU Court of Justice must be given effect in the UK.

Backbench rebel Conservative MPs launch devastating attack on immigration.


The Conservative half of the Coalition has been pushing hard on the need for ever-more draconian measures on immigration, to be reflected in the upcoming Immigration Bill. While we wait for the Bill to be laid before Parliament, some Conservative backbenchers, who have rebelled against their party whip on a number of occasions in the past, have put forward 8 bills aimed at dramatically reducing immigration. All these bills are set to be read for a second time in October.
