R. (on the application of Mensah) v Salford City Council 2014


This case concerned the lawfulness of using the payment levels available to failed asylum seekers as a reference for how much the council should pay to families as support under section 17 of the Children Act 1989. The case illustrates the ability of the court to decide how much is enough and how far a council policy can rely on guidance used by another public body.
