Immigrants ‘should sign FGM declaration before entering UK’

Campaigners called for immigrants to be required to sign a declaration promising not to subject their daughters to genital mutilation before being allowed into Britain.

Leading figures in the fight against FGM called for a special pledge to be brought in to ensure everybody is clear that the practice is against the law.

London MEP Marina Yannakoudakis said she will raise the issue with the government and called for more research to identify other countries that have introduced declarations.
