The Court was required to determine whether there was an obligation on the respondent to conclude cases falling within the “legacy programme” either by the grant of leave to remain or by effecting the removal of the applicant from the UK. Held: dismissing the applications, the “legacy” scheme placed no new obligations on the respondent.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
