Case No: CO/1663/2022
In the High Court of Justice
Queen’s Bench Division
31 May 2022
The Honourable Mr Justice Chamberlain
on the application of UK
Secretary of State for the Home Department
On the Claimant’s application for urgent consideration and interim relief
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 “UK”. Any report of these proceedings must not include the names, address or other information likely to identify the claimant, her partner or her child.
2. Pursuant to CPR 5.4C(4)(c), 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 edited so as to remove information likely to identify the claimant, her partner or her child.
3. The papers are to be referred to a High Court Judge or Deputy High Court Judge to consider (i) the application for permission and (ii) the application for permission as soon as possible in the week commencing 6 June 2022.
The claimant, her partner and baby daughter have been living in a single room for over 9 months. The defendant apparently accepts that they need to be moved to dispersal accommodation. Accommodation was identified and the family were due to move on 17 April 2022, but inadequate transport arrangements were made. Time for filing and serving the AoS expires tomorrow Wednesday 1 June 2022. The defendant would be well-advised to ensure that the judge considering permission and interim relief has detailed and specific evidence of the steps taken to secure accommodation and the associated transport arrangements.
