UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: review of immigration reservation (March to June 2011)5 Apr 2011
When the UK ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, it lodged a reservation in relation to immigration functions. It agreed to review the reservation 12 months after ratification to assess whether there was a continued need for it in practice. The review has now begun. As part of the review, the government wants to hear the views of disabled people and of external partners with an interest in these issues, so that it is able to take these views into account. The deadline for responses is 13 June 2011.
