Welcome to the February 2017 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This episode I start with two major developments, namely the coming into force of new EEA immigration regulations and the judgment of the Supreme Court in the MM case. I run through some Home Office and enforcement news, cover some bits of immigration rule analysis we added in Febrary and end with a few tribunal cases.
The material is all drawn from the February 2017 blog posts on Free Movement.
