AND UPON the Defendant having agreed to pay the Claimant’s costs

1. The Claimant shall be referred to in these proceedings as “NA” and pursuant to CPR 39.2 there shall be no publication of the name or address of the Claimant or any particulars of the case likely to lead to the identification of the Claimant or her child without leave of the court.
2. The Claimant’s application for permission to withdraw the application for judicial review is granted.

2. An anonymity order was sought, which I have granted, as the Claimant is an asylum-seeker and has a child living with her.
