Secretary of State for the Home Department

In the matter of an application for judicial review:

On the Claimant’s application for urgent consideration
Following consideration of the documents lodged by the Claimant

ORDER by the Honourable Mr Justice Chamberlain
1. Pursuant to CPR 39.2(4), the Claimant is to be referred to in these proceedings as “HA”. No-one may publish information likely to disclose the identity of the Claimant or her children. Pursuant to CPR 5.4C, a person who is not a party to these proceedings may not obtain a copy of a statement of case, judgment or order unless it has been anonymised.
2. The Defendant may respond in writing to the application for interim relief by Friday 13 May 2022.
3. The papers are to be placed before a judge or deputy judge of the Administrative Court immediately thereafter for a decision on interim relief on the papers.
4. Any person may apply to the Court, on notice to the Claimant, to vary or discharge para. 1 of this Order. If such an application is made, it is to be referred to a judge no less than 3 working days after it is made.


The first letter before claim is dated 21 March 2022. It explains why it is said that the Defendant is acting unlawfully in failing to provide suitable accommodation for the claimant and her children.
The response of 26 April 2022 is generic and provides no answer to the specific points made.
In the circumstances, it is appropriate to abridge time for a response to the interim relief application.
