R (on the application of Palestine Solidarity Campaign Ltd and another) v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Pension – Pension scheme. The Administrative Court allowed the claimants' challenge to part of the defendant Secretary of State's statutory guidance, 'Guidance on preparing and maintaining an investment strategy statement'. The Secretary of State had not acted for the required pensions purpose in having made guidance that singled out certain types of non-financial factors, concerned with foreign/defence and other matters, and having stated that administering authorities could not base investment decisions upon them.
