Case Law Update 39 – Hollow v Surrey – Unsuccessful challenge to local authority budget which included savings on SEND provision

In this update, the court ruled that there was nothing unlawful about the decision by Surrey council to set a budget which provided for significant savings in expenditure on SEND services. The savings were not set in stone and the council could not know what the impact of cuts might be or consult upon them as at the time the decision was taken, no cuts had been decided upon.
