Cautionary Tales 3: Immigration
DVD1984 30 Minutes
Refusal of visas by the Home Office in 1984
The Home Office exercises extraordinary power over people’s lives by granting or refusing visas. Dr Patel was refused a visa to visit his very ill father. Mrs McLean’s daughter was unable to get permission to visit her from Jamaica, and it took Mr Ali ten years to get permission for his family to join him in England.
Part of a series explaining aspects of the law as it was in 1984 in popular terms, with examples so that people could be aware of their rights and know what to do in certain situations. Very useful to compare with the same situations today.
