*YM (Uganda) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Deportation. The appellant appealed against the decision of the Upper Tribunal (Asylum and Immigration Chamber) to allow the respondent Secretary of State's appeal against a decision of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, allowing the appellant's appeal against an order to deport him to Uganda. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the appeal on the ground concerning art 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights, considered whether the provisions of the Immigration Act 2014 and the new 2014 Immigration Rules (the 2014 Rules) would have any relevance to the appeal and, assuming that the appeal had to be decided by reference to the statutory provisions prevailing before the Act and 2014 Rules had applied, how the Immigration Rules in force in 2012 were to be applied.
