R (on the application of Alnuaimi) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

DATE: 04 Nov 2015

On a proper construction and by reference to the natural meaning of the Immigration Rules r.319E it applied only to a person who had been a dependant of a points based system migrant for five years. The secretary of state's refusal to grant indefinite leave to remain to an applicant who had spent five years lawfully in the UK with a mixture of leave to remain as a points based system migrant and leave to remain as a dependant was lawful and in accordance with the rule.
