B v Harrow London Borough Council and Another: HL 8 Jan 1992

The claimant asked the education authority to provide education for a child with special needs. The parent expressed a preference for a school outside the authority’s area. The question at issue was, when deciding whether such a placement would be an effective use of the resources, the effect of the placement on both authorities was to be considered. It was held that the Act allowed only the circumstances of the placing authority to be taken into account.
