Gravier v City of Liege


1985. this is freedom of movement

people cannot discriminate on fees on the grounds of nationality

Gravier a Frenchman moved to Belgium. He later enrolled on a course there. They attemoted to chareg him higher fees than a Belgian would pay because he was not Belgian

This is about fees and not about maintenance grants

Bidar v London Borough of Ealing – maintenance grants. A state can require someone to live there for over 5 years before getting a grant

tHe minerval was a registration fee. Gravier could not be obliged to pay this. That would fly in the face of the Treaty of Rome article 7
