THE IMMIGRATION ACTS
Heard at Field House

On 13 September 2013
Lord Bannatyne sitting as Judge of the Upper Tribunal
Upper Tribunal Judge Kekić
Stella Ololade Olufon
Entry Clearance Officer
For the appellant: Mr A O Modupe, Legal Representative
For the respondent: Mr T Wilding, Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
1. The appellant is a national of Nigeria born on 10 October 1950. Her appeal against the refusal of entry clearance as a visitor was allowed by First-tier Tribunal Judge Raymond on 17 July 2013. The ECO (whom we continue to refer to as the respondent for ease of reference) challenged the determination only on maintenance and accommodation grounds and permission to appeal was granted by First-tier Tribunal Judge Nicholson on the basis that it was arguable that the judge had erred in failing to consider those matters.
2. At the hearing of the appeal on 10 September, Mr Wilding sought permission to withdraw the respondentís challenge to the determination. He acknowledged that in the review by the EC Manager, maintenance and accommodation had been conceded and explained that his colleague who drafted the grounds had not seen that concession. Mr Modupe was content with the withdrawal which we agreed to.
3. As there is no longer any challenge to the decision of the First-tier Tribunal, the determination allowing the appeal remains effective.
