R (on the application of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and another) v Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills

European Union – State aids. The claimant local authorities sought judicial review of decisions of the defendant Secretary of State in relation to the allocation of European Union structural funds for the period 2014 to 2020. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the allocation had been rational, proportionate and permissible. However, the Secretary of State had breached the public sector equality duty, as the allocation had not been preliminary or provisional.
