(5)The Secretary of State may certify that grounds contained in the notice of appeal were considered in the original appeal.

(6)On the issuing of a certificate by the Secretary of State under subsection (5), the appeal, so far as relating to those grounds, is to be treated as finally determined.

(7)Subsection (8) applies if, on the application of the appellant, an immigration officer or the Secretary of State makes a decision in relation to the appellant.

(8)The immigration officer or, as the case may be, the Secretary of State may certify that in his opinion—

(b)the appellant had no other legitimate purpose for making the application.

(9)No appeal may be brought under the [1997 c. 68.] Special Immigration Appeals Commission Act 1997 or this Act against a decision on an application in respect of which a certificate has been issued under subsection (8).
