Upper Tribunal Judge Macleman
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
For the Appellant: Mr Rea, of Rea Law, Solicitors
For the Respondent: Mr Howells, Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
DETERMINATION AND REASONS
1. On 4 December 2019, the respondent made a decision to deport the appellant under the Immigration (EEA) Regulations 2016. FtT Judge David C Clapham, SSC, dismissed his appeal by a decision promulgated on 17 April 2020. On 20 May 2020, the FtT granted permission to appeal to the UT, on the view that the judge arguably did not deal with the wide range of considerations in regulation 27 (5).
2. The hearing on 9 September 2020 was clerked from the tribunal hearings centre at George House, Edinburgh. I conducted it from a hearing room at the tribunals hearing centre, Aberdeen. Representatives attended remotely. No members of the public attended, either in person or remotely.
3. (The ground of appeal is as set out in regulation 36, not in section 82 of the 2002 Act, as stated by the FtT.)
4. Mr Howells conceded that the FtT erred by referring to Goralczyk,  CSIH 60,  SLT 1183, but failing to apply it; by failing to address proportionality in terms of regulation 27; by addressing the best interests of the appellant's three children in cursory terms; and by failing to consider whether the appellant's rehabilitation was more likely in the UK or in Poland.
5. Parties agreed that the outcome should be as follows.
6. The decision of the FtT is set aside, and stands only as a record of what was said at the hearing. Under section 12 of the 2007 Act, and under Practice Statement 7.2, the case is remitted to the FtT for a fresh hearing. The member(s) of the FtT chosen to consider the case are not to include Judge Clapham.
7. No anonymity direction has been requested or made.
