BENEFITS: R (KR) v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions [2008] EWHC 1881 (Admin)
Date:30 JUL 2008

(Queen's Bench Division (Admin); Bean J; 30 July 2008)

The financing of a handover journey was consistent with the purposes of the social fund, and it was common sense that, while an ordinary school journey was excluded, a journey to facilitate the children's change of residence form one parent to another was not excluded simply because it began or ended at the child's school on a day when the school was open.
