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

Immigration – Leave to remain. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's grant of leave to remain on the condition that she have no recourse to public funds. The Secretary of State subsequently agreed to remove the condition, such that there was no live issue directly between the parties. The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), in dismissing the application, held that it was not appropriate to proceed to hear the application for judicial review substantively, as its resolution would be unlikely to be of any real assistance to a significant number of cases, if at all.
