Welcome to the October 2014 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. As normal, the material for the podcast is drawn from blog posts on Free Movement for the month of October.

I start this month by going through some asylum updates, move on to some other important cases and then finish with important changes to immigration appeals and a few policy updates from the Home Office and some thoughts on the significance of the 7 year residence period for children set out in the rules.
