European Union – Freedom of movement. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling deciding that art 45 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and art 7(2) of Regulation (EU) No 492/2011 should be interpreted as meaning that a child of a frontier worker, who was able to benefit indirectly from the social advantages referred to in the latter provision, such as study finance granted by a member state to the children of workers pursuing or who had pursued an activity in that member state, meant not only a child who had a child-parent relationship with that worker, but also a child of the spouse or registered partner of that worker, where that worker supported that child.
