Having regard to the application introduced on 27 April 1983 by M.

3 May 1983 under file No. 10737/83;

Having regard to

- reports provided for in Rule 40 of the Rules of Procedure of the
Commission;

- the Commission's decision of 7 December 1983 to bring the
application to the notice of the respondent Government without
requesting the parties' written observations at that stage pending the
outcome of the cases of Mmes Abdulaziz, Cabales and Balkandali v. the
United Kingdom;

- the information provided by the applicant on 15 November 1985
and 27 May 1986;

Having deliberated;

Decides as follows:

THE FACTS

The applicant is a citizen of Colombia, born in 1952.  She was
represented before the Commission by the Paddington Advice and Law
Centre and Ms M. Davidson.

The applicant originally complained to the Commission of the refusal
of British immigration authorities to allow her husband to remain with
her in the United Kingdom.  She invoked Articles 3, 8 and 14
Art. 3, art. 8, art. 14) of the Convention.

Following the communication of the application to the respondent
Government, pursuant to Rule 42 (2)(b) of the Commission's Rules of
Procedure, and the Commission's Report (12.5.83) and the judgment
(28.5.85) of the European Court of Human Rights in the test case of
Mmes Abdulaziz, Cabales and Balkandali v. the United Kingdom, the
respondent Government reviewed the applicant's case.  On 14 February
1986 the Government informed the Commission that the applicant's
husband had been given twelve months' leave (renewable indefinitely)
to remain in the United Kingdom.  On 27 May 1986 the applicant
requested the withdrawal of her application to the Commission.

REASONS FOR THE DECISION

The Commission notes that the applicant's complaint has now been
resolved by the leave granted to the applicant's husband to remain
with her in the United Kingdom.  It considers that there are no
reasons of a general character affecting the observance of the
Convention which necessitate the further retention of this case.  The
Commission, therefore, accedes to the applicant's request to withdraw
her application.

For these reasons, the Commission

DECIDES TO STRIKE THE APPLICATION OFF ITS LIST OF CASES.
