R (Association of British Civilian Internees: Far East Region) v Secretary of State for Defence 
- A scheme to compensate Japanese internees was put in place
- It required the claimant to show that at least one parent or grandparent had been born in the UK
- An award of £10,000 would then be made
- Could this requirement be set aside on the grounds of proportionality?
- Not disproportional as shows a connection
- Proportionality is not part of UK law, so the claim would fail anyway
