The Government promised it was "taking tougher action" against sham marriages as part of plans to curb the overall numbers of immigrants entering the UK.
A Home Office spokesman said:
We are taking ever tougher action, including through the new Immigration Act, to crack down on those who try to cheat our immigration system by abusing marriage laws.
We are also focusing on cutting out the abuse of free movement between EU member states and addressing the factors that drive European immigration to Britain.
