Neath and Port Talbot Council v Secretary of State for Health: Admn 31 Jul 2013

The court was asked which of two the local authorities should pay for the continuing care of a man now nearing 50 years of age who suffered severe brain injury in a road traffic accident in 2005. He lacked mental capacity and required 24 hours’ care. The issue of funding in turn depended upon the authority in whose area SM is ordinary resident within the meaning of the 1948 Act.
