Assurance of Support: Disallowance Motion Scheduled for Senate Business

The Disallowance Motion discussed in our earlier post which seeks to strike out the retrospective changes to the Assurance of Support income requirement has been introduced to the Senate.

The Motion is scheduled to be discussed after 2pm today, Wednesday the 9th of May, as per Senate Business discussed here (see page 2; you will need a pdf viewer).

For those who want to follow proceedings live you can watch the Senate at this web link.

We will report the result of the Motion when we have it to hand.

Update: The changes to the AoS requirements are to be withdrawn, with the old rules to be reintroduced: see the blog post here.
