I did a talk at a conference on the topic of legal issues about the bedroom tax, it was basically a critical overview of the higher courts and tribunal (FTT and UT) cases. In case they are useful or vaguely interesting, my notes are here. (No jokes though. All the jokes were in the powerpoint, and I’m not putting that up.)
The notes are out of date already, though only a week old (though bits are recycled from my earlier notes).
A Scottish Upper Tribunal is to hear a room size case appeal on 18 September, while such appeals in England and Wales are stayed pending a test case. So we will see…
It also appears that article 8 separated family based cases appealed to the Upper Tribunal in England and Wales are also stayed or to be stayed, pending the hearing of the Liberty backed Judicial Review. And article 14 disability discrimination cases may perhaps be stayed pending the Supreme Court deciding whether to hear MA & Ors. The Scottish UT may well go right ahead, though.
