R (on the application of AC and another) v Lambeth London Borough Council

Local authority – Child. The defendant local authority had failed to carry out an assessment of the first claimant as a child in need, despite the indications from his mother that he had needed support and the confirmation of those difficulties in an autism assessment. However, the Administrative Court held that it had not been unfair for authority not to have presented its provisional conclusions to the claimants' mother for her response.
