R (on the application of Hasan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. Against the background of the administration of immigration policy, it was to the highest degree unlikely that what the Secretary of State had intended by the use of the words 'receipt by the applicant' in para 34R of the Immigration Rules had been actual, physical receipt into the applicant's possession. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appellant Bangladeshi national's appeal, held that his application for an administrative review of an adverse decision on his application for further leave to remain had been made outside the 14-day time limit for applying.
