Hurley and others v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (Equality and Human Rights Commission intervening)

Social Security – Benefit. The Administrative Court held that the failure to exempt at least individual family carers from the benefit cap on some who received carer's allowance, under Pt 8A of the Housing Benefit Regulations 2006, SI 2006/213, was unlawful because it amounted to indirect discrimination which was not objectively justifiable. However, the Regulations were not unlawful as disproportionate or unreasonable.
