Welcome to the October 2016 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This episode I start with the abortive increase in fees for immigration appeals and changes to appeals to the Court of Appeal, cover new types of online applications available and then some EU law issues, move on to review cases including one from the Supreme Court on discrimination in nationality law and end with some Home Office policy issues.
The material is all drawn from the October 2016 blog posts on Free Movement.
