Regina (O by her litigation friend the Official Solicitor) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2014] EWCA Civ 990 ;  [2014] WLR (D)  327

‘When determining the lawfulness of the continued immigration detention of a person with mental illness the court’s role was to supervise the decisions made by the Home Secretary for their compliance with the law, applying the Wednesbury test of unreasonableness, and was not that of a primary decision-maker such that it had to make its own choice between medical experts.’

In re M-F (Children) (Appeal: Case Management: Necessary Delay) [2014] EWCA Civ 991;  [2014] WLR (D)  326

‘Section 32(1)(a)(ii) of the Children Act 1989, as amended, required that care cases be concluded within 26 weeks. However, that time limit could be extended if it was necessary to enable the court to resolve the proceedings justly since the 26 weeks rule was not, and must never be allowed to become, a straightjacket, least of all if rigorous adherence to an inflexible timetable risked putting justice in jeopardy.’

‘The conditions in article 7(1) of Parliament and Council Directive 2004/38/EC, as implemented by the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, were to be strictly interpreted on the basis that the right to a permanent residence card was a privilege which was not conferred unless there was strict and literal compliance with the conditions therein. They were not to be interpreted under European Union law in a dynamic way such that it was enough if they were substantially or functionally fulfilled.’

‘Article 2(a) of Parliament and Council Directive 95/46/EC meant that data relating to an applicant for a residence permit contained in an administrative document amounted to “personal data”. Article 12(a) of Directive 95/46 and article 8(2) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union meant that an applicant for a residence permit had a right of access to all personal data concerning him which were processed by the national administrative authorities within the meaning of article 2(b). For that right to be complied with, it was sufficient that the applicant was in possession of a full summary of those data in an intelligible form, which allowed the applicant to become aware of those data and to check that they were accurate and processed in compliance with that Directive, so that he could, where relevant, exercise the rights conferred on him by that Directive. Article 41(2)(b) of the Charter meant that the applicant for a residence permit could not rely on that provision against the national authorities.’
