Consultation on judicial review reforms

printer Mail

The Ministry of Justice has launched a brief consultation on proposed reforms to the law of judicial review in England and Wales. This follows the conclusion of the Faulk’s independent review of administrative law (IRAL), which was established in July 2020 to examine trends in judicial review and to consider recommendations for reform including codification of key grounds and principles, clarification of the principles of non-justiciability, grounds and remedies available in claims against the government and judicial review procedure.

The consultation sets out the government’s response to the IRAL report, its understanding of the constitution, its aims with regard to judicial review, and specific proposals for reform. The consultation includes specific questions, but also invites general feedback on the subject of judicial review more broadly. The consultation closes on 29 April 2021.
