Reasons for Apparent Eind Reversal in 2016 Regulations

The request was successful.

Dear Home Office,

I note as per the FOI request below:

that on previous occasion the Home Office had amended the regulations to correctly reflect and apply the case of Eind.

However, the 2016 regulations, and in particular the guidance for 'Family members of British citizens' once again erroneously requires British citizens to also show they are qualified people since 25 November 2016.

Please send me the reasons for this reversal, perhaps included in internal guidance, policies, or other such communications.

Yours faithfully,
