Catherine there was a link, I don't know what has happened. I've highlighted he further information on this case below...

William Ford, solicitor for the Claimants, commented as follows:

“We are pursuing this legal challenge based on the proposition that the pandemic means those dependent upon basic allowances are facing higher basic living costs, and yet despite their very similar circumstances, only some of them receive a Covid-specific uplift to help meet those costs. This unfairness calls for a properly evidenced justification, particularly as almost 2 million disabled people are disproportionately affected by this decision and the pandemic generally. Thus far the Government has failed to provide any objectively verifiable reason for the difference in treatment of people in essentially identical circumstances.”

The final hearing will be held 28-29 September 2021. Further updates will be posted on the website
