Y, R (on the application of) v London Borough of Hillingdon [2011] EWHC 1477 (Admin)

Immigration – Age – Assessment – Children

15 June 2011
Administrative Court
Keith J
Determination of age quashed, but minor flaws in the decision making process of determining the age of the Claimant did not result in the process being so flawed that judicial review would succeed.
(1) The case concerned the assessment of the age of a young person, the Claimant. She was brought from Nigeria when she was around 5 years of age. She is now, by her own admission 18, but until aged 21 is entitled to support and assistance under Section 23C of the Children Act 1989. To obtain such assistance, determination of the Claimant’s date of birth was necessary.
