Secretary of State for the Home Department v KG (India) [2016] EWCA Civ 477

DATE: 23 May 2016

It would be wrong to apply the concept of de minimis to an application for leave to remain under the points-based system where the applicant failed, by a very small margin, to meet the minimum salary requirements in the Immigration Rules Appendix A para.79. The rules about salary were very clear and the question whether they were satisfied was only capable of a "yes" or "no" answer.
