R (Woods and Barrett) v SSWP CO/1552/2018
Permission to apply for judicial review was granted in this matter on 5 July 2018 and the claim has been joined with a similar case being brought by Leigh Day solicitors. The hearing will take place over 28 and 29 November 2018.
On 29 March 2018, CPAG filed a claim for permission to apply for judicial review to challenge the rigidity of the assessment period regime in universal credit which results in some people being treated as receiving two monthly wages in one assessment period, in turn affecting the amount of their UC award.
