R (on the application of McDonagh) v London Borough of Enfield

Housing – Homeless person. The defendant local authority was in breach of its statutory duty under the Housing Act 1996 s 188 from December 2015 to February 2018, as it had not taken all reasonable steps to meet the duty to secure the availability of suitable accommodation pending a decision as to its duties. However, the Administrative Court held that it did not act incompatibly with the claimant's rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
