Cash Bond Argument for UK Parliament

September 2013, 12
EMAIL  Print A+

UK Parliament Building
Vince Cable, the UK Liberal Democrats business secretary, has announced his view that forcing immigration bonds from various countries will cause outrage and damage relations between countries. He announced that conservative plans to make travelers visiting the UK from countries such as India, Pakistan and Nigeria pay £3000 bonds will not go down with anyone and are tantamount to discrimination.

Many people in the coalition have allegedly interpreted the bond conditions in a very negative way which looks like everyone will have to pay the bond who arrives into the country from these so-called high risk countries. Mr Cable suggests that he will attempt to urge the Conservative Home Secretary, Theresa May, to reconsider the planned bonds, as the Liberal Democrats feel that these plans will damage relations between these countries and the UK. 
Theresa May has put forward the proposal that all travellers visiting the UK, should pay a bond in cash of £3000 which the UK government will keep if the travellers should overstay their visa in the UK, and not return within the visa validity period back to their country of Origin. The policy is due to be piloted in November this year.
Mr. Cable however has stated that the approach should be a “sensible and flexible” approach to the policy and he is concerned about the reaction from the countries, particularly India, where he feels this was met with an outraged reaction.
When Mr. Cable was asked if Theresa May should review the new Bond policy, he stated. “Yes, I think so”
For the time being, the argument seems to be at a stalemate, although the Liberal Democrats will continue to fight for the policy rules to be relaxed. 
When polled, the UK public were surprised to hear that India was on the list for so-called high risk countries. Comments given by the UK public included “ this is outrageous, how can you say India is a high risk country given the amount of imports coming into the UK from their factories and mills” and “ This is going to impact tourism in a dreadful way, and it will make the UK’s warm welcome to visitors tarnished.” 
Many people are on the side of the Liberal Democrats, and feel that whilst there should be better ways of keeping track and finding over stayers, a bond forbidding anyone without a large amount of money from entering the country is counter-productive.
