(Un-named) (HB): SSCS 14 Dec 2005

‘appeal from a decision of the tribunal dismissing the claimant’s appeal against a decision that he was not entitled to housing benefit or council tax benefit in respect of a claim made in June 2001. The claim was withdrawn in the course of a fraud investigation by the respondent housing authority, but it has since become apparent that the claimant might have been entitled to benefit if he had not taken that action. The appeal therefore raises the question of whether, in those circumstances, an award can be made on the claim notwithstanding its withdrawal.’
