R (on the application of AR) v Hammersmith and Fulham London Borough

Local government – Housing. On the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant local authority's decision that it did not have power to provide the claimant with accommodation, the Administrative Court dismissed the application on the basis that: (i) the authority's decision not to provide accommodation under the Care Act 2014 was lawful; (ii) the authority would not be able to provide accommodation to the claimant under s 1 of the Localism Act 2011; and (iii) the claimant was excluded from such provision pursuant to Sch 3 to the Nationality Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 on the ground that such support was not necessary for the purpose of avoiding a breach of his rights under the European Convention on Human Rights or his EU rights.
