Abstract

The High Court in Northern Ireland has held that the denial of a widowed parent’s allowance on the death of the applicant’s partner, on the grounds that the couple were not married, unlawfully discriminated against her. The refusal of a bereavement payment to the same applicant because of her marital status was upheld.
