Our solicitor Laura Banks has spoken to the media about landmark Supreme Court judgement in Siobhan McLaughlin’s challenge to eligibility for widowed parent’s allowance. The decision held that refusing benefits to unmarried parents represents unjustifiable discrimination against children and is incompatible with Human Rights law. It is expected to benefit thousands of children throughout the UK.

Laura spoke to BBC’s Talk Back, BBC News , Radio 5 Live, Sky News and ITV. Francis Hanna held a press conference at Law Society House on 30th August 2018 which was widely reported on up by a range of media outlets and print newspapers, both locally and nationally including The Newsletter, The Telegraph, The Independent, The Guardian and The Times.
