Welcome to the November 2015 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. In this episode I talk a little about the latest immigration statistics, some rule changes on EU nationals applying for British nationality and the latest batch of immigration rule changes, I do a quick review of Upper Tribunal cases covered on Free Movement in November and then end with some big cases from the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
The material is drawn from the November 2015 blog posts on Free Movement.
