Client lives in a tent in receipt of IR ESA and DLA MRC/LRM. 

We think he has an arguable case for the Severe Disability Premium. For convenience we have listed sources below in case etc etc.

But just for completeness/pedantry would be really handy to have a copy of R(IS)23/98. Had a paper copy years ago upcountry, but not now. Has anyone got a copy they can share please?

DWP definition of accommodation sources CPAG handbook 2019/20 page 936 includes tents and Vol 9 Chapter 24 paragraphs 54159 - 60 DMG

edited because of bad link on my part and erm should read 24 instead of 54.
