*R (on the application of HC) v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and others

Social security – Benefit. The principle in Zambrano v Office National de l'Emploi turned specifically and solely on the risk of the carer and children being obliged to leave the territory of the European Union. The Supreme Court, in dismissing the claimant's appeal, held that there was no authority to extend the Zambrano rights to include non-contributory benefits, nor could the claimant rely on the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in order to establish a right to further financial assistance.
