HA, R (on the application of) v London Borough of Hillingdon & Anor [2012] EWHC 291 (Admin)

Immigration – Age assessment – Accommodation – Duty of authorities

Accommodation and support was to be provided to the Claimant until his age had been determined by the Upper Tribunal. Determination of which authority owed the duty to provide care was not merely a geographical test.
17 February 2012
Administrative Court
Bean J
(i) The Claimant, an asylum seeker from Afghanistan, challenged a decision of 14th June 2011 that determined that he was over 18 years of age.  The Claimant submitted that the age assessment was erroneous and unlawful and that he was 14 years old. Both parties agreed that the issue of determination of age was appropriate for trial in the Upper Tribunal.
