The court was asked whether the judge was in error or not in refusing to set aside the decision of the respondent local authority, the London Borough of Brent that the appellant was not entitled to support under section 21(1) of the 1948 Act which enables a local authority to provide accommodation for a person in need of ‘care and attention’ for the purposes of that section.
