29.04.10 - Local authority wrong to deny assistance to a family awaiting decision on application for indefinite leave to remain in the UK

 
Public Law Solicitors acted for Ms Clue in a challenge to the decision to refuse to provide Ms Clue and her family with essential support pending the UK Border Agency’s determination of her application for indefinite leave to remain in the UK. In a ground breaking decision of the Court of Appeal, the judgment extends the scope of community care provision for families subject to immigration control who seek to remain in the UK on Article 8 ECHR grounds.
