HM Courts & Tribunals Service Social Security and Child Support Tribunal THE BENCHBOOK Thirteenth Edition - November 2014

We're waiting for Anthony Collins to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service,

Please supply the Benchbook of the Social Security and Child Support Tribunal
titled "HM Courts & Tribunals Service Social Security and Child Support Tribunal THE BENCHBOOK"
Thirteenth Edition - November 2014

This had been requested previously but erroneously not released; the reasons given were wrong:

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request – 171231001
"The Social Security and Child Support (SSCS) Benchbook is information produced by
and for the Judiciary. It is not held by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service
(HMCTS)."

As attached cover of the benchbook shows

It is a HM Courts & Tribunals Service publication

It is therefore:
produced by HM Courts and Tribunal Service
and
is held by HM Courts and Tribunals Service

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Outcome of Internal Review – 18011605
"is not produced by HMCTS. It is also therefore not held by HMCTS"

It is produced by HMCTS as the logo on the cover shows
