Supreme Court rules on DLA for children in hospital

Advisers may be interested to hear about this GB case which, according to the Supreme Court, 'may pave the way for many other disabled children to establish the same entitlement'.

The Supreme Court ruled that the withdrawal of Disability Living Allowance following a child being in hospital in excess of 84 days can be a breach of human rights. The Court did not strike down the rule as a whole but stated that there is a potential breach and that each case should be assessed on its facts.
