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

Immigration – Leave to remain. The Secretary of State sent the claimant applicant for judicial review a draft consent order, agreeing to reconsider her decision refusing him leave to remain and making an unappealable removal decision within three months, if the claimant withdrew the proceedings and paid her costs. At the hearing, she sought the dismissal of the judicial review proceedings and further costs. The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) approved a modified draft consent order, reducing to four weeks the reconsideration period and making no order as to costs inter partes. It further promulgated general guidance on recurring unsatisfactory practices and trends in the tribunal.
