R (on the application of Robson and another) v Salford City Council

Local authority – Transport. The claimant adults with severe disabilities sought judicial review of the defendant local authority's decision to cease providing directly a transportation service for eligible adults living in its area to enable them to attend adult day centres. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the authority had not breached its statutory duty, under s 2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970. Further, the consultation had been fair and the authority had complied with its public sector equality duty.
