A legal wrangle between Camden LBC and the government over a£21m housing subsidy will be fought out in a high court judicial review, reported The Hampstead and Highgate Express (p8).

The move follows a decision by John Prescott, the environment secretary, that Camden is not entitled to money it claimed it lost when changes to housing accounting systems were introduced in the early 1990s.

The hearing will take place in September and the council's case will be backed by eight other local authorities who say they are similarly affected by the government's decision.

They have all pledged to contribute to Camden's legal costs, which could be up to£30,000 should its case fail.
