The DWP is using a bedroom tax case to challenge future welfare appeals. The government is back in court today in a second attempt to block a legal route used by many people to appeal against discriminatory benefit decisions.
Last year, it was reported that the DWP was using the case of Jayson and Charlotte Carmichael, who successfully challenged the bedroom tax at the Supreme Court, to try to stop other people from relying on the Human Rights Act when bringing a similar appeal. The department lost that case but it is now dragging the Carmichaels back to court to appeal the decision.
"If we beat them this time, we hope the route that we used will be protected," Jayson Carmichael told Politics.co.uk.SOURCE
