The nature of the PSED duty to have regard is informed by the particular function being exercised. See ZK v Redbridge LBC (2020);EWCA Civ 1597 at paras 82-84. In any case where a public authority’s functions under legislation are expressly directed at the needs of a protected group it may be/unnecessary to refer to the PSED, or to infer from an omission to do so a failure to have regard to that duty.
