R (on the application of JA and others) v Bexley London Borough

Local authority – Accommodation. The Administrative Court allowed the claimant children's application for judicial review of a decision of the defendant local authority that their carer was not destitute. Given the evidence and materials before the authority at the time of the decision or which reasonably could have been available to the authority if appropriate enquiries had been made, the decision to find that the carer was not destitute and that the claimants were not children in need had been Wednesbury unreasonable.
