1. The No 3 Commencement Order of the 2014 Act, SI 2014/2771, extends the new appeals provisions to identified persons, but the amendment of it in SI 2014/2928 further extends those provisions to identified decisions.
2. In consequence, a person against whom a deportation decision was made in the period 10 November 2014 – 5 April 2015 may have no right of appeal if the decisions actually made carry rights of appeal only under the new appeals provisions. (Note: A further change was made to the commencement provision with effect from 2 March 2015, which did not fall for consideration on the facts of this case.)
Fascinating. So glad that has been cleared up.
