DECISION TO SET ASIDE
1. By way of my decision granting permission signed on 15 February 2020 and sent to the parties under cover of a notice dated 25 February 2020, the Upper Tribunal notified the parties of its proposal to set aside the decision of Judge of the First-tier Tribunal Lucas in its entirety and remit the appeal to the First-tier Tribunal for a Judge of that Tribunal other than Judge Lucas to re-make the decision on the appellant's appeal. The reasons for the proposal were set out in the decision granting permission.
2. In my decision granting permission, the parties were informed that the Upper Tribunal will proceed to issue a decision to give effect to its proposal unless the parties objected, with reasons, by 4 pm on the 14th calendar day after the date of the Tribunal's notice.
3. To date, no response has been received from the appellant or from the respondent.
4. In the circumstances, I am satisfied that the decision of Judge Lucas involved the making of an error on a point of law such that it falls to be set aside in its entirety. I set it aside in its entirety. The reasons for my decision are given in the decision granting permission to appeal. For the reasons given in the same notice, this case is remitted to the First-tier Tribunal for a Judge of that Tribunal other than Judge Lucas to re-make the decision on the appellant's appeal.
