Banger Update

Speaker: Anthony Metzer QC
Chambers: Goldsmith Chambers

In this in-depth review and update, Law Friends regular Anthony Metzer QC, Head of Chambers at Goldsmith Chambers, explores SSHD v Banger and its implications for the rights of extended family members of UK citizens (who have been exercising treaty rights in an EU country) to return to the United Kingdom with the UK citizen and to enter the United Kingdom on the basis of the EU Regulations rather than the British Immigration Rules. In particular, the seminar looks at:

  • Factual summary background
  • Procedural background
  • The judgment of the CJEU
  • The resumed hearing of the UT on 20 March 2019
  • Appeal rights
  • Regulation 9 and EFMs
  • P: A Minor EFM: A judicial review challenge
  • Brexit and beyond: Appendix EU and the settlement scheme
