Family migration amendment withdrawn but not lost

'Baroness Hamwee, the Liberal Democrat Peer who chaired the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration’s Family Migration Committee, tabled a new clause to the Immigration Bill that aimed to reduce the £18,600 income threshold to the national minimum wage. Hamwee withdrew the amendment but promised to bring it back at a later stage. '
