I have to give a massive amount of thanks to Baroness Hamwee and Dr. Julian Huppert MP, who both worked to have our situation resolved in the upcoming Crime and Courts Bill. The reasoning for the unusual placement was because the bill deals with immigration and nationality issues, and it was their hope that we could be included in one of the amendments. Unfortunately, our issue was considered too out of scope to be included in the bill, but it's great to know we have people trying their best to end the discrimination we are facing.
