Langford v Secretary of Defence

War pension – Claim. The appellant's claim for benefit under the Armed Forces (Compensation Scheme) Order 2011 as the long-term partner of the deceased, a serving member of the scheme, was refused on the grounds that, whilst an unmarried dependant could make a claim, the appellant had been unable as she had remained married to her long-time estranged husband. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowing the appeal, held that the discrimination in the instant case had not been reasonable.
