Jagoo v Bristol City Council

Local government – Council tax. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeal, held that in determining whether the fiscal advantage of an exemption from council tax should be afforded to a student, attention should be directed to the normal requirements of the course which the student was undertaking and not the study undertaken by an individual student. Accordingly, the appellant had been unable to bring herself within the definition of a person undertaking a full-time course of education because her studies required additional hours due to her dyslexia.
