Government proposes further curtailing of judicial review

The government has recently published proposals for further changes to the potential availability of judicial review as a mechanism to hold public bodies to account. The additional proposals include considering changes to the rules on standing, limitations to the costs that can be claimed (particularly at the leave stage) and changes to the definition of procedural impropriety.

The UK Human Rights Blog discusses issues surrounding judicial review here. Another article from the same blog contains useful links to other discussions around the issue.
