Detention Action v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Detention. Following the court's decision concerning the defendant Secretary of State's policy and practice in operation of the detained fast track (DFT) for determining asylum applications (see [2014] All ER (D) 113 (Jul)), the claimant sought declaratory and other relief. The Administrative Court was satisfied that declaratory relief was necessary and should refer to what was unlawful in the operation of the DFT. However, no other substantive orders on the relief sought would be made, as they were unnecessary.
