Welcome to the January 2017 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This episode I start with a few EU law issues, including whether the Home Office can force EU citizens and family members to use the official application forms and the position of EU citizen spouses of British citizens, cover a few Home Office policy issues and then end by reviewing the most important cases for the month.
The material is all drawn from the January 2017 blog posts on Free Movement.
