DWP v Yates  EWCA Civ 479, Court of Appeal on 10th June 2009
The issue in this case concerned the circumstances in which a recipient of a "Category B" retirement pension who is resident abroad can take advantage of increases in rates arising under up-rating orders. A category B pension is one which is payable by reference to a spouse's contributions. The normal position is that those who are ordinarily resident abroad are disqualified from the benefit of annual increases. However there are exceptions.
