R (M) v London Borough of Hounslow

Citation[2013] EWHC 579

The Claimants were a group of disabled children who claimed that the legislation on school transport required that they were to be transported from door step to school gate. The authority held that where suitable, and putting in place appropriate risk assessments, it was not unreasonable or unlawful for them to utilise pick up points near at hand to save journey times and encourage independence.

Fiona Scolding acted for the London Borough of Hounslow.
