Mr Justice Julian Knowles,


The King on the application of


Secretary of State for the Home Department


On an application by the Claimant for urgent consideration and interim relief
Following consideration of the documents lodged by the Claimant and the Defendant

  1. Pursuant to CPR 39.2(4), the Claimant shall hereinafter be referred to in these proceedings as QXR.
  2. Pursuant to CPR rule 39.2(4) there shall not be disclosed in any report of the proceedings the name or address of the Claimant or any details leading to the identification of the Claimant. The Claimant, if referred to, shall only be referred to as QXR.
  3. The Defendant is to file and serve a response to the Applicant’s application for interim relief within ten days of the date of this order.
  4. Costs reserved.


  1. I decline at this stage to make any substantive order on interim relief, eg, by requiring the Claimant to be relocated to Southampton.
  2. The Defendant is positively engaging with the Claimant’s solicitors, and there is doctor to doctor interaction, and the Defendant obviously recognises the urgency of the situation.
  3. Matters will take their course and from what I have read there is every chance the Defendant will agree to move the Claimant. If not, once the medical investigations have been completed, a further application for interim relief can be made if necessary
  4. Anonymity is appropriate.
