Powys CC, ex p Hambidge (No 2) [2000] 54 BMLR 133 (CA)

Charging – disability – discrimination

A charging policy imposing different charges on service users, which required those in receipt of income support and disability living allowance/attendance allowance to pay more than those in receipt of income support only was not in breach of s20(1) Disability Discrimination Act 1995, as the difference in charges depended on the amount of a person’s income and not on a reason related to disability.
