Just before Declan is off to the High Court to file his claim against the Greater London Authority, we lose the internet at home (British Telecom) and on our smartphone (Vodafone)

Mayor of London Boris Johnson

Just before Declan left for the High Court this morning to file his claim against the Greater London Authority for our unlawful removal from the Mayor of London's Housing First Programme, we lost our internet connection at home (British Telecom) and on our smartphone (Vodafone). Declan had no sooner left the flat than our home access was restored, but he didn't get an internet connection on the smartphone until late this afternoon, and only after a technician in a Vodafone store restored a data access function on the phone that had been disabled.

According to the Administrative Court Office, it could take them up to two days to process Declan's claim against the Greater London Authority.

SECTION 5 Detailed statement of grounds

The Claimant challenges the decision of the Defendant to uphold his and his wife’s referral from the Mayor of London’s Housing First Programme to Clearing House/TST as unacceptable and unlawful because it contravenes the "secure exit plan" stipulated in the 2014/15 Pilot Funding Agreement between GLA and SHP at Schedule 2. Unlike Housing First, Clearing House/TST is "time-limited" in that eligibility for flats, issued on two-year renewable Assured Shorthold Tenancies, terminates when individuals are assessed as being able to live independently. By reason of upholding this referral, the Defendant is accountable and responsible for it. The Defendant has also failed to comply with its discovery obligations by not providing the Claimant with evidence that GLA Housing First has ended and will not be continued. The Defendant does not consider this matter suitable for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), and therefore the Claimant seeks permission to proceed with a claim for judicial review as a remedy of last resort on the said ground of illegality.
