R (on the application of NS and others) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave for indefinite stay. The first claimant Thai national and her four children sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decisions to grant her leave to remain (LTR) for 30 months on the condition that she should have no recourse to public funds (NRPF). The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that, having regard to s 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009, it was not unlawful to grant the first claimant LTR, rather than indefinite leave to remain and it was not unlawful, in principle and in the circumstances, to impose the NRPF condition.
