Episode details

The Byline Times podcast can reveal that children are being charged more than £1,000 to register their right to become British citizens - even though the cost of administering their applications costs just £416.

Although these are kids are born in the UK and their status isn't disputed, they still have to go through a costly - and alienating - registration process.

Adrian Goldberg hears from Susan, who faces paying the fee for her three youngsters; along with Solange Valdez Symonds from the Project for the Registration of Children as British Citizens; and Steve Valdez Symonds from Amnesty International.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg.
