Immigration Asylum seeker. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing in part the Secretary of State's appeal against a declaration of unlawful detention, held that where a person subject to a deportation order had not been removed from the UK, a subsequent decision by the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court in unrelated proceedings which made clear that the tribunal's decision to dismiss his appeal against the decision to make the order had been made on a flawed legal basis, would be a proper ground for an application to the Secretary of State to revoke the order, and for appealing against a decision to refuse to revoke the order, but it would not invalidate either the tribunal's decision finally determining the appeal, or the deportation order made in reliance upon that final determination.
