Ibrahim v Redbridge London Borough Council: QBD 17 Dec 2002

The claimant had sought to be housed by the respondent for seven years. She had been temporarily rehoused, but because the council implemented a policy of rehousing according to current need, she lost her priority.
Held: The policy was lawful. The council faced overwhelming demand, and the selection between schemes was a political one. The scheme reflected the policy of the section in reflecting current need, however unfairly it affected the claimant.
