Regina (G) v Immigration Appeal Tribunal; Regina (M) v Immigration Appeal Tribunal: Admn 25 Mar 2004

The applicants sought judicial review of the Immigration Appeal Tribunal’s refusal of leave to appeal. The court had to decide whether such a right survived section 101 of the 2001 Act.
Held: The right to have a judicial review could only be removed by the clearest of words. A right remained, but it was severely circumscribed because of the alternative and preferred forms of challenge. The procedure was not discriminatory because by its nature it could only apply to non-nationals.
