SSHD v Pankina & Ors  EWCA Civ 719<br />Held that Policy Guidance is not binding, only the Imm Rules themselves. Overturns NA and Ors<br />Otherwise found that the Imm Rules had to be satisfied at the date of the application not at the date of the appeal hearing in PBS cases [§ 38-39].<br />
On Article 8 ECHR:<br /> “The Home Secretary must have regard and give effect to applicants' Convention rights. This will mean in most cases evaluating the extent and quality of their family and private life in the United Kingdom and the implications, both for them and for the United Kingdom, of truncating their careers here.” [§41 onwards]<br /> => Context of an applicant who falls marginally or momentarily short of a financial criterion which in itself has no meaning<br /> => SSHD to adopt a common sense approach<br />
