Kanu v Southwark London Borough Council [2014] EWCA Civ 1085;  [2014] WLR (D) 344

‘Where an applicant with a disability sought housing assistance as homeless, section 149(1) of the Equality Act 2010 did not require a housing authority to do any more than was required by the Housing Act 1996. The public sector equality duty in section 149 of the 2010 Act could not extend to requiring a housing authority to secure accommodation for a disabled person in circumstances where his disability did not render him vulnerable.’
