The decision will keep this reference unless it is published on the Tribunals Service website or is reported. If a decision is thought to be of importance it is published on the Tribunals Service website.
Decisions published on the website carry no more legal weight than any other decision. If a decision goes on to be reported, an additional reference is added. The first time the decision is referred to it should be cited in full.
Older systems to watch out for Older decisions made by a Tribunal of Commissioners, rather than by a single Commissioner; would have the suffix T at the end e.
To confuse matters they were also given a separate "star number" for the year in which they were starred e. The system of starring has now been discontinued.
The old system for reporting decisions gave them a different numbering system. The test involves looking at the whole nine months for DLA, 6 months for AA and saying whether, in a more general sense, the person has sufficient needs to satisfy one of the rules for the care or mobility component.
It is an exercise in judgment rather than an arithmetical calculation of frequency. It cannot be used to refuse an award if a claim ceases earlier, such as if a new claim is made. In such cases it is legitimate for a tribunal to look to see whether or not there was a diagnosis of any physical or mental condition in relation to the claimant which could give rise to his behaviour as a starting point.
The test says nothing about how often the person should be able to cook. The fact, for example, that a claimant might sit on a stool to perform operations that an able-bodied person would perform while standing would not necessarily qualify him for the care component.
This case concerned a girl who was under age 16 when the decision was made but was about to become 16 when the cooking test would apply.
This appeal failed because the lack of these senses, in themselves, were insufficient to prevent the claimant from cooking a main meal. If considerations of safety render the claimant incapable of preparing a meal, then he cannot do so.
Reasonable is what is reasonable for a member of the community to which the claimant belongs but a "cooked main meal" is not a snack. The test includes all activities associated with cooking such as reaching for a saucepan, lifting it and filling it with water.
Because the test is objective it is irrelevant that a claimant may never wish to cook such a meal or that it is considered financially impossible. Heavy pans or dishes are not necessary when preparing this meal.
The main issue is not whether help was provided but whether it was needed. By this definition, selecting clothes to wear and applying Braille labels is attention but the sorting of clothes for laundering or checking food labels for sell by dates was not.
