Father of Steven Neary Seeks Legal Advice on Housing Benefit

Categories: News

The father of an autistic man who was unlawfully detained by a west London council is seeking legal advice after his housing benefit was revoked.

Hillingdon Council held Steven Neary, of Uxbridge, for almost a year after he was taken into a unit in December 2009. The 22-year-old’s father Mark now says his housing benefit has been stopped because he part-owns a property. You can find this story on the BBC website here.
