Immigration – Leave to remain. The proceedings concerned individuals who had unsuccessfully claimed asylum in the United Kingdom and whose cases had been referred to the 'legacy' programme. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that there was no obligation, in the form of a commitment, on the part of the Secretary of State to 'conclude' cases that fell within the legacy programme that related to asylum cases, either by the grant of leave to remain or by effecting removal of the applicant from the UK. The various applications and appeal in respect of judicial review were all refused.
