UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE KING TD
mr nouman rashid
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
For the Appellant: Mr W Malik, Solicitor instructed by WH Malik Solicitors
For the Respondent: Mr S Walker, Home Office Presenting Officer
DECISION AND REASONS
1. The appellant is a citizen of Pakistan. He seeks to appeal against a decision dated 3 December 2015 refusing to grant him an EEA residence card. For the purposes of such an appeal he is to be regarded as an extended family member.
2. The appeal came before Upper Tribunal Judge Martin, sitting as a judge of the First-tier Tribunal, on 4 May 2017. At that time the decision in Sala (EFMs: right of appeal)  UKUT 00411 (IAC) was then in existence. That provided that there was no right of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal for that category of member. Thus it was that the appeal was dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
3. The situation has now changed in that the decision of Sala has been overtaken by the decision in Khan v SSHD  EWCA Civ 1755. Thus it would appear that the First-tier Tribunal does indeed have the jurisdiction to determine such appeals.
4. In the circumstances the decision of Tribunal Judge Martin shall be set aside and the matter sent back to the First-tier Tribunal to determine the merits of the appeal. It will be for the First-tier Tribunal in those circumstances to give any such directions for hearing as it may determine.
Notice of Decision
The appeal is allowed to the extent that there is to be a substantive hearing.
No anonymity direction is made.
