Zar Begum v Social Security Commissioners and Another: Admn 6 Nov 2003

The applicant sought judicial review of the respondent’s refusal of income support. She had entered the UK on the basis of an undertaking given that she would be supported without recourse to public funds. The legislation provided no standard form for such an undertaking, but the absence of such an undertaking was not fatal to prevent excusing payment of benefits.
