I acted for the Secretary of State in this Court of Appeal case which clarifies the relationship between insolvency legislation and the Secretary of State’s right to recover overpaid benefits. It concerns the circumstances in which the discharge of bankruptcy discharges unrecovered benefits.

It is the sequel to the case R (Steele) v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions [2006] 1 W.L.R. 2380 (CA) in which I also appeared.
