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

Immigration – Workers. The claimant residential care home for the elderly sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision, removing it from the Tier 2 register of licensed sponsors on the basis that K had not had the role of public relations officer stated in his certificate of sponsorship. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the Secretary of State had been entitled to rely upon interview records with the claimant's staff. Accordingly, the Secretary of State had been entitled to conclude that K's role had been substantially that of a senior care worker and not a public relations officer.
