This week In­dia’s Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi is on a visit to Bri­tain for high-level talks with David Cameron. An ideal op­por­tu­nity then to dis­cuss the plight of Con­nel fa­ther Billy Irv­ing, who has been stranded in In­dia since Oc­to­ber 2013.

His part­ner Yvonne Machugh has ap­pealed to Mr Cameron to raise the is­sue in the hope that the young fam­ily might fi­nally be re­united this Christ­mas.

It beg­gars be­lief that Billy has been stuck in limbo for the last two years, un­able to leave the coun­try or work so he can pay for bed and board and our gov­ern­ment has not pulled out all the stops to bring him home de­spite all charges against him be­ing dropped in July 2014.

Let’s re­mind Mr Cameron of his duty of care to­wards Billy and his col­leagues. Tweet him about rais­ing Billy’s plight with Naren­dra Modi at @David_Cameron
