Regina (Stewart) v Wandsworth London Borough Council and Others: QBD 17 Sep 2001

The words ‘within their area’ in the section had to be read consistently with other parts of the Act, and therefore, the duty to carry out an assessment if a child had a physical connection with the area. A temporary housing in a homeless hostel within the authority district was sufficient.
