Abstract:A striking recent House of Lords decision (R v Immigration Officer at Prague Airport and Another ex p. European Roma Rights Centre and others UKHL 55,  2 W.L.R. 1) sees the House grappling with fundamental questions of public international law (including the relation between treaty interpretation and customary international law and the relation between English and international law) and holding an immigration scheme inherently and systematically discriminatory and unlawful. However, as this analysis indicates, their Lordships too often fail to heed the broader consequences of their decision.
