Mr Mills has now been granted permission to appeal his case to the Supreme Court, although only on the single ground of,
“whether, provision having already been made for the respondent’s housing costs in the capital settlement, the Court of Appeal erred in taking these into account when raising her periodical payments.”
This is quite a narrow ground and it remains to be seen whether the Supreme Court will take the opportunity to make some more general comments about spousal maintenance. A date for the appeal hearing is awaited.
