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

Housing – Local authority houses. In possession proceedings brought by the claimant local authority where the one succession rule was at issue, it was held that section 88(2) of the Housing Act 1985 was objectively justified, and there was no unlawful discrimination engaging the defendant's art 14 and art 8 rights under the European Convention on Human Rights. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division dismissed the defendant's application for declaratory relief.
