Excellent news! Makes such a lot of sense that the wider challenge to the cap for all lone parents and their children is heard at the same time as the challenge relating to lone parents of children aged under two.

No update on this I am afraid. Given it is a 7 member Supreme Court and it was heard slightly before the summer recess I think realistically it will take some time. We are all hopeful that a decision is made by end of next term (ie before Christmas). We will update as soon as we are able to (although judgment will be on Supreme Court website on the day of handing down in any event and we can’t be any quicker than that….).
