Judicial Summary

The analysis of mandatory reconsideration in R(CJ) and SG v SoSWP [2017] UKUT 324 (AAC) applies to child support as it does to social security. It applies if the Secretary of State has overlooked or ignored the lateness of the application - there has still been a consideration to found an appeal.
