AS (Somalia) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2009] UKHL 32; [2009] WLR (D) 194

“The provisions of s 85(5) of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, which provided that an immigration judge hearing an appeal against a refusal of entry clearance could only have regard to the circumstances appertaining at the time the decision to refuse was made, were not in themselves incompatible with art 8 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, even though their effect could be to cause unreasonable delay in bringing a family together in the United Kingdom.”
