Synopsis

Report on the new immigration rules which are at the moment being considered by the Court Of Human Rights in Strasburg which mean that husbands of British women brought into the UK are still aliens whereas wives of men in a similar situation are not. Looks at the change to Britiains's immigration laws, by which husbands of immigrant women no longer have the automatic right to live in the U.K. even if their wives are British citizens. A group of immigrant women took their case to the European Commission of Human Rights in Strasburg, which decided that the British government had a case to answer.
