Welcome to the March 2017 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This episode I start with the some general news and updates, I then run through a whole load of cases, most of which I think are Court of Appeal authorities, and then end with a look at Statement of Changes HC1078 and then a few of the new style of more detailed blog posts on the Immigration Rules, this time covering several more of the general grounds for refusal. These have now been collected together into a training course for those who are interested.
The material is all drawn from the March 2017 blog posts on Free Movement.
