Having regard to Article 25 (art. 25) of the Convention for the

Having regard to the application introduced on 8 November 1983 by
Z.M. against the United Kingdom and registered on 17 November
1983 under file No. 10645/83;

Having regard to

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

- the Commission's decision of 7 May 1984 to bring the application to
the notice of the respondent Government without requesting the
parties' observations at that stage pending the outcome of the test
case of Mmes Abdulaziz, Cabales and Balkandali v. the United Kingdom;

- the information provided by the Government on 8 January 1986;

- the applicant's failure to keep the Commission informed of her
intentions regarding the present application;

Having deliberated;

Decides as follows:


The applicant is a Moroccan citizen, born in 1963, who is lawfully
settled in the United Kingdom.  She is represented before the
Commission by the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, London.

The applicant originally complained to the Commission of the refusal
by the British immigration authorities to allow her Moroccan husband
to remain with her in the United Kingdom.  She had invoked
Articles 3, 8, 13 and 14 (art. 3, art. 8, art. 13, art. 14) of the

Following the communication of the application to the respondent
Government, pursuant to Rule 42 para. 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
Government reviewed the applicant's case.  On 8 January 1986 the
Government informed the Commission that the applicant's husband has
been granted twelve months' leave to remain in the United Kingdom
(renewable indefinitely).

The applicant's representatives were then asked whether, in view of
this development, the applicant wished to maintain her application to
the Commission.  No reply has been received to this inquiry, despite


The Commission notes that the applicant's complaint has been resolved
by the leave granted to her husband to remain in the United Kingdom
and that the applicant has not kept the Commission informed, through
her legal representatives, of her intentions regarding her case.  In
these circumstances, the Commission finds that the applicant has lost
interest in her application, and that there are no reasons of a
general character affecting the observance of the Convention which
require its further examination.

For these reasons, the Commission


Secretary to the Commission          President of the Commission
