Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.

On Tuesday 20, Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 October, the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of SC, CB and 8 children v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Ors. This appeal will consider whether the ‘two child limit’, a provision of primary legislation which restricts payment of amounts of subsistence benefit for children to the first two children in a family, is incompatible with the Appellants’ rights under the European Convention on Human Rights.

On Friday 23 October, the Supreme Court will hand down the judgment of R (on the application of Pathan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department. The proposed panel for hand down is Lord Kerr, Lord Wilson, Lady Black, Lord Briggs, and Lady Arden. The appeal considered whether notice to an applicant of revocation of a sponsor’s licence in respect of his or her Tier 2 (General) Migrant application is required as a matter of procedural fairness.

The hand-downs will be streamed on Supreme Court Live and will then be made available on the Supreme Court’s video on demand service.
