SP v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (UC): [2018] UKUT 227 (AAC)

Upper Tribunal Administrative Appeals Chamber decision by Judge Jacobs on 10 July 2018.

Read the full decision in CUC/1067/2018.

Judicial Summary

The judge makes two points. First, without deciding the issue, it is inherent in the nature of a notification that can lead to a sanction for failure to comply that it does not take effect unless and until it is received. Second, he decides that the notion of good reason does not allow a person who was not aware of a letter of notification to be made subject to a sanction.
