Shkembi v SSHD [2006] INLR 512

DATE: 01 Jan 2006

Court of Appeal in overturning the Immigration Appeal Tribunal held that comments made by the then SSHD, Mr Blunkett, on BBC Radio 4's 'Start the Week' concerning an amnesty for asylum-seeking families could be considered to be a 'gloss' on that policy whereby a family who didn't fall within the precise terms of the policy might nonetheless succeed under Article 8.
