Social security - Housing benefit - Review of determination - Compatibility of housing benefit review board's decision with claimant's Convention rights - European Convention on Human Rights, art 6.
Although a housing benefit review board was constituted of members of the local housing authority that had initially refused the claimant's application for housing benefit, and notwithstanding that there were factual disputes between the authority and the claimant, there was no risk that the board's judgment of fact had been infected by a lack of impartiality because the decision to refuse housing benefit was reasonable on facts that were not disputed. Accordingly, there had been no breach of art6 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
