  1. The Claimant’s application for interim relief is to be determined at a hearing, to be listed on the first available date after 15.3.24 with a time estimate of 1½ hours (the parties should urgently contact the List Office if they disagree with that time estimate).
  2. The Defendant and (if so advised) the Interested Party are to file and serve submissions setting out their position on interim relief no later than 4 working days before the hearing.

  2. Pending the interim relief hearing it is in the interests of justice to anonymise the Claimant in view of his refugee status but the need for anonymity can be more fully considered at that hearing.
