§ Dr. Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is planning to make any changes to the way in which he consults local government following the judgment in R. v. Secretary of State for Social Services; ex parte AMA.
§ Mr. Mellor
This was a case concerning housing benefit. We shall need to study the written judgment, which is not yet available, before we can decide what: the implications for the Department might be.
