Who will still fail the residence test? People who are not accepted as victims of trafficking before getting legal representation.

Post 74

“Today I met a woman who trafficked to the UK and forced into prostitution for 2 years. She was imprisoned for using a false passport. UK authorities didn’t accept she was trafficked. She was to be deported. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I successfully challenged the decision in court. She was accepted as a victim of trafficking and now has refugee status.

THIS CASE WOULD BE BARRED BY THE “RESIDENCE TEST”.

EXCEPTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH.”
