Constance Salgado & her son Alvaro

Constance is a British citizen who married a Colombian and lives in Bogota. Her son Alvaro isn't entitled to British citizenship, because he was born before February 7, 1961. Her other son, who ws born after the cut-ooff date, has British citizenship. Mrs Salgado was prevented from applying to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Wiomen, because the UK entered a reservation to the CEDAW, that it shouldn't apply to our immigratiion and nationality law. See the following web address for the most recent discussion of the problem in Parliament:
