June 16th, 2020 by James Goudie KC

Amongst the issues considered by a Divisional Court (Bean LJ and Cavanagh J) in a 55 page Judgment in Adiatu v HMT (2020) EWHC 1554 Admin was, from para 195, the scope of the PSED, including, from para 239, the question, which the Court answered in the affirmative, whether the public authority’s duty is to have regard to the equalities implications of the decision that is actually taken. The Court rules that it does not have to consider the equalities implications of other decisions that might have been taken instead : paras 242-245.
