Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Section 74: “One-stop” procedure: duty to disclose grounds for appeal etc

219.Section 74 requires the decision-maker to serve on persons who have a right of appeal exercisable in the United Kingdom against a decision, a notice inviting submission of additional grounds. The notice must also be served on any family member. Additional grounds might be immigration, asylum or human rights matters, compassionate circumstances or a mixture of these. These additional grounds will then be considered. If these new grounds for remaining are also refused, and the refusal attracts a right of appeal, the refusal will be dealt with at a single appeal along with the original refusal. Adjudicators will not necessarily have powers to consider every matter which has been raised in additional grounds (see also notes on section 77 and Schedule 4, paragraph 21). Subsections (8) and (9) provide for regulations to prescribe who are relevant family members and the procedures to be followed in respect of notices and statements.
