Discusses the courts' treatment of local authority discretionary housing payments (DHPs), and their role in the ongoing welfare reform agenda. Reviews the regulatory regime underpinning DHPs, and case law concerning their proportionality and their use to justify welfare reforms that would otherwise be unlawfully discriminatory. Examines potentially problematic assumptions about DHPs and anticipates future developments in their judicial treatment.
