*Mayor and Burgesses of the London Borough of Haringey v Simawi

Housing – Local authority houses. The issue of whether the Housing Act 1988 ss87-88 was incompatible with the Human Rights Act 1998, schedule 1, art 8 and 14 was exceptional. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division granted the order to exercise its discretion to determine an issue even if its resolution in the particular case was rendered academic.
