Immigration Asylum seeker. It was contrived and unreal to regard the Secretary of State for the Home Department's one off policy to clear some long-standing asylum cases off the books, under which families with dependent children aged under 18, either on 2 October 2000 or on 24 October 2003, were given indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom, as a violation of art14 or of the common law principle of non-discrimination, either on grounds of proportionality or for want of justification. Therefore, the appellants, who had come to the United Kingdom within the appropriate dates, but without their families, could not benefit from the policy.
