To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the rationale behind their decision to appeal the judgment in R (on the application of ZAT and Others) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (Article 8 ECHR - Dublin Regulation - interface - proportionality) IJR [2016] UKUT 00061 (IAC).

The Secretary of State for the Home Department’s (SSHD) rationale for appealing the judgment is that the Tribunal erred in law in making its decision. The Tribunal accepted that the issues in dispute in the case should be considered by the Court of Appeal and so granted the SSHD permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal on 29th January 2016.
