It would set JR back to the years before the reforms of the s, when public bodies and the courts were struggling to cope with a system bogged down by sterile technical jurisdictional distinctions. In other words, the judge considers whether the person challenging the decision appears to have a viable case, and if so, gives permission for it to continue. Indeed, it is increasingly clear that for at least some senior judges — consider, for instance, the by now well-known dicta in Jackson — the absence of such respect for the courts might trigger a wider breakdown in institutional comity. Delay in the conclusion of judicial review proceedings can significantly affect the public, by effectively "freezing" public bodies from acting in relation to the decision being challenged, for example, in long planned road building schemes or the granting of licences to mobile phone companies. As we will see below these cases were spread unevenly among 26 government departments.

Conventional judicial review proceedings have always been part of the law in this country. First, we looked at cases brought by NGOs and interest groups. Finally, the objection to imposing a new fee is that it may inhibit access to justice. This paper is intended to contribute to discussions by providing evidence drawn from our current research which indicates that broad reform of standing is a disproportionate response given the current ability of the judges to control the caseload and the small number of cases which appear to fall within the category about which the government is concerned. In particular, in cases where permission is initially refused and then reconsidered at an oral hearing, a fee will have to paid by the person challenging the decision at that stage whereas at present, there is no additional fee at that point. Why have these proposals attracted so much criticism?

The consultation process ends today, and the Government will then decide whether to press ahead with its proposals, amend them, or abandon them. Notes to editors: View the consultation and response document. Other matters the Commission considers in relation to both conventional and statutory judicial review are the appropriate tests to be applied to the application for leave, and the important issue of the time limits to be applied in judicial review proceedings.

The Government argues that judicial review gets in the way of efficient decision-making: that Ministers are doing their best to make decisions and get things done, but that nitpicking judges are constantly holding things up by picking holes in the procedures that have been followed.

There is some concern that the fear of Judicial Review is leading public authorities to be overly cautious in the way they make decisions, making them too concerned about minimising, or eliminating, the risk of a legal challenge.

Meanwhile, reducing the scope for challenging initial refusals of permission to seek judicial review arguably assumes that the initial stage is more robust than it actually is.

The changes announced today have been designed to drive out meritless applications to speed up the court system for people with genuine cases.
