Welcome to the August 2014 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. As normal, the material for the podcast is drawn from blog posts on Free Movement. There was a huge amount of important new material on the blog in August so I’ve had to be selective in what to cover this month.

I concentrate on the commencement of the statutory human rights considerations and accompanying immigration rule and Home Office policy changes. There are a few other things I mention at the end as well, including the likely date for the commencement of the new highly restricted appeals regime. The material follows the order of links to content below.
