Non Contributory Benefit in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • R v National Insurance Commissioner.ex parte Secretary of State for Social Services
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 14 Abr 1981

    To my mind the word "functions" in its physiological or bodily sense connotes the normal actions of any organs or set of organs of the body, and so the attention must be in connection with such normal actions. The word "attention" itself indicates something more than personal service, something involving care, consideration and vigilance for the person being attended. The very word suggests a service of a close and intimate nature.

  • Insurance Officer v McCaffrey
    • House of Lords
    • 22 Nov 1984

    Accordingly, I read the subsection as having this effect: a claimant not only has to show the existence of an entitlement but has also to make a claim in the prescribed manner and within the prescribed time in order that he may be paid. This construction avoids introducing a restriction upon entitlement not to be found in section 36 and makes sense of section 79(1) as a provision dealing with the administration of benefit.

    Secondly, the phrase "bodily functions" is a restricted and precise one, narrower than, for example, "bodily needs". Thirdly, the phrase "attention … in connection with bodily functions", which must, I think, be read as a whole, connotes a high degree of physical intimacy between the person giving and the person receiving the attention. I would add that I fully agree with the observations of Dunn L.J. in Packer's case at page 1023 in the paragraph between letters E and G.

  • Cockburn v Chief Adjudication Officer
    • House of Lords
    • 21 May 1997

    Here again I would stress that the attention which is desiderated in connection with the bodily function must be some close and intimate service to the person of the claimant. The personal nature of what is comprised in attention prompts the observation made by Dunn L.J. in the passage in his judgment in Packer [1981] 1 W.L.R. 1017, 1023F that the attention must be a service involving personal contact carried out in the presence of the disabled person.

  • Steven Sumpter v The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 22 Jul 2014

    In respect of this ground, Mr Westgate's submissions founder on the evidence. It is unfortunate that the terms of the 2012 proposals were not clearer. It is unfortunate that the 2013 Consultation did not take place prior to the adoption of the Moving around criteria in the 2013 Regulations. And the Secretary of State was entitled to come to the same view, having considered all of the options, the evidence and the consultation responses, with an open mind.

  • R v Secretary of State for Social Services, ex parte Connolly
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 19 Dic 1985

    In a case where a Commissioner has refused leave to appeal without giving reasons and an applicant seeks to challenge such refusal by way of judicial review, the onus must, in my judgment, lie on the applicant to show either (a) that the reasons which in fact caused the Commissioner to refuse leave were improper or insufficient, or (b) that there were no good grounds upon which such leave could have been refused in the proper exercise of the Commissioner's discretion.

  • Mallinson (A.P.) v Secretary of State for Social Security
    • House of Lords
    • 21 Abr 1994

    I confess that initially I was attracted by this approach but on further consideration I am satisfied it is mistaken. The only attention which can be given to a person "in connection with" a sight handicap is to provide the assistance to enable that person to do what he could physically do for himself if he had sight. That I would regard as being the active personal assistance which constitutes the attention which a normal person does not require which the subsection demands.
