    Bedroom tax judgment was released today – 30.07.2013.
    The challenge has not failed on everything as we won on the need for new regulations to cover disabled children unable to share a room.

      Although the judgment seems to say that the “regs/guidance” argument as mainly advanced by Birmingham CC, rather than any of the claimants. Not that it really matters. Good to win on one point at least.

      Was permission to appeal granted?
