Can any kind reader provide a copy of this decision? Can’t find at usual sources or online search.

It is referred to in CPAGs HB& CTR legislation 33rd ed. on p600 (2nd para) re Reg 100 “official error” and advice from LA that certain income is disregarded.

It’s CH/4838/2002 you are after I think.  A one-pager on failure to address an argument submitted by the claimant (which was that he had been told REA didn’t count as income and so apparently did not disclose it) - remitted for rehearing.

Thanks Peter
Yes this would appear to be the case - 2001 a misprint in CPAGs HB vol.

My case involves info. on HB decision notices (over many years - by Capita) that certain income is disregarded. What they actually mean is the application of the childcare charges disregard. But that is not what it is called nor does it, arguably, make clear how the disregard is applied to earnings:

“The Childcare Payment (CCP) of £X is not used in the calculation. The disregarded amount is deducted from your income. Amount of CCP disregarded from your income - £X”
