The Home Secretary’s statement that he had no intention to seek the removal from this country of an asylum seeker did not operate to remove his right to persist with an appeal against refusal of refugee status. In the light of the Sad case, the appeal must be allowed to go ahead. The asylum claimant was entitled to have the question whether he was a refugee determined by the appellate authorities. In those circumstances, the argument in favour of adjourning the case indefinitely disappeared.
