(ANONYMITY DIRECTION MADE)
SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
DECISION PURSUANT TO RULE 40(3)(a) OF THE TRIBUNAL PROCEDURE (UPPER TRIBUNAL) RULES 2008
1. After a hearing before me on 5 December 2019, I set aside a decision of the First-tier Tribunal ("FtT") which dismissed the appellant's appeal against a decision dated 7 September 2018 to refuse leave to remain on Article 8 grounds.
2. In further directions sent on 19 February 2020, I said as follows:
"1. In the light of the email dated 28 January 2020 from Ms Isherwood for the respondent (copied to the appellant's solicitors), the Upper Tribunal's provisional view is that the decision in the appeal should be re-made, allowing the appeal under Article 8 with reference to paragraph GEN 3.2 of the Immigration Rules and s.117B(6) of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002. The decision may be made under rule 40(3)(a) or (b) of the Tribunal Procedure (Upper Tribunal) Rules 2008 (decision by consent).
2. Unless within 7 days of this decision being sent, either party notifies the Upper Tribunal that it objects to what is provisionally proposed in paragraph 1 above, the Upper Tribunal will proceed to re-make the decision as set out above."
3. Neither party has expressed any dissent from the course proposed in those directions.
4. Accordingly, the decision is re-made and the appeal is allowed in the terms set out in the directions quoted above. Pursuant to rule 40(3)(a) of the Tribunal Procedure (Upper Tribunal) Rules 2008, no reasons (or further reasons) are required, the decision being made with the consent of the parties.
Direction Regarding Anonymity - Rule 14 of the Tribunal Procedure (Upper Tribunal) Rules 2008
Unless and until a Tribunal or court directs otherwise, the appellant is granted anonymity. No report of these proceedings shall directly or indirectly identify him or any member of his family. This direction applies both to the appellant and to the respondent. Failure to comply with this direction could lead to contempt of court proceedings.
