‘There are broadly two questions before the court in this appeal. The first concerns the application of the Secretary of State for the Home Department’s policy governing the detention under the Immigration Act 1971 (‘the 1971 Act’) of persons who have a mental illness, and the consequences if she is found not to have applied that policy correctly. The second concerns the adequacy at common law and under the Equality Act 2010 (‘the Equality Act’) of the procedures under which mentally ill detainees can make representations on matters relating to their detention.’
