European Union - Freedom of movement - Persons
European Union Freedom of movement. The linked claims for judicial review of the three claimants had been selected as test cases in which to consider the lawfulness of the defendant Secretary of State for the Home Department's policy, and its application, to European Economic Area (EEA) nationals found sleeping rough in the UK. The Queen's Bench Division, in granting the claims for judicial review, held, amongst other things, that the policy was unlawful because to treat rough sleeping as an abuse of the right to freedom of movement and residence, as the defendant had done, was contrary to EU law.
