Immigration - Appeal - Asylum and Immigration Tribunal

The Case

Immigration Appeal. In refusing the appellant an EEA card neither the Secretary of State or the First Tier Tribunal (Asylum and Immigration Chamber) had had regard to reg 21 of the Immigration (EEA) Regulations 2006. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division held that given that the matter was one of public policy, it was necessary to have had regard to that regulation and the failure to have done so was an error of law.
