R (on the application of SB (Jamaica) and another) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed an appeal against a decision to grant the appellant leave to remain in the United Kingdom for 30 months with a condition that there be no recourse to public funds (NRPF). The appellant's application had been correctly assessed by reference to the transitional provisions and a grant of leave to remain under the Immigration Rules, rather than discretionary leave, had been correct on the facts. There had been no infringement of s 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009 so far as the appellant's child had been concerned. The imposition of the NRPF condition had not been irrational or unfair.
