Government acted unlawfully in barring EU citizens




Court of Appeal on 18th December 2020: The UK Government acted unlawfully in barring EU nations in the UK from relying on ‘pre-settled status’ to access benefits, housing.
Fratila v Secretary of State for Work and Pension [2020] EWCA 1741 (18th December 2020).

In 2019 the UK Government made emergency regulations, which sought to block EU nationals who had been granted a right to remain in the UK from relying on their ‘pre-settled status’ to claim social housing, homelessness assistance, and access to benefits.

The decision decides that the government had acted unlawfully thus quashing parts of the 2019 regulations.
The Court of Appeal interestingly, in this case, refused the government permission to the Supreme Court.
