Policy on removal during ongoing family proceedings

Colin Yeo made this Freedom of Information request to UK Border Agency

The request was successful.

From: Colin Yeo

21 November 2009

Dear Sir or Madam,

I write to request disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act
the UK Border Agency policy referred to at paragraphs 24 and 27 of
the judgment of the Court of Appeal in MS (Ivory Coast) v Secretary
of State for the Home Department [2007] EWCA Civ 133. I have looked
carefully through the various policy documents on the UKBA website,
including the Immigration Directorate Instructions, but can find no
reference to this policy.

For clarity, the policy appears to be that removal action will not
be pursued while a person is pursuing family proceedings relating
to children.

I request disclosure of the exact terms of the policy and the
circular or other document that sets out the precise details of the
policy.

Yours faithfully,

Colin Yeo
