UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE SHERIDAN
(ANONYMITY DIRECTIOn not made)
SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
For the Appellants: Not represented
For the Respondent: J Isherwood, Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
DECISION AND REASONS
1. The appellants are appealing against a decision of Judge of the First-tier Tribunal Young-Harry ("the judge") promulgated on 14 October 2019 dismissing their human rights claim. Permission to appeal was granted on 7 February 2020 on the basis that the judge had not assessed the best interests of the first appellant's children.
2. In the light of the covid-19 pandemic, directions were issued by the Upper Tribunal expressing the preliminary view that the error of law issue in this appeal could be determined without a hearing.
3. On 11 May 2020 Ms Isherwood, on behalf of respondent, wrote to the Upper Tribunal stating that it was accepted that the judge materially erred in law for the reasons given in the grant of permission. On 21 July 2020 she wrote again to the Upper Tribunal stating that the respondent accepts that the circumstances as they now exist (where the first appellant's husband has been granted indefinite leave to remain and they have a British citizen child) establish that removal would be unlawful under section 6(1) of the Human Rights Act.
4. In the light of the position of (and for the reasons given by) the respondent, I set aside the decision of the First-tier Tribunal and remake the decision by allowing the appeal.
