“The management and allocation of housing stock by a housing trust which was a registered social landlord under the Housing Act 1996, including decisions concerning the termination of a tenancy, was a function of a public nature, with the effect that the registered social landlord was to regarded as a public authority in that respect for the purposes of s 6(3)(b) of the Human Rights Act 1998. The registered social landlord was accordingly amenable to judicial review on conventional public law grounds in respect of its performance of that function.”
