Where a party applying for judicial review had received the practical decision he sought from the defendant, but wished the review to go ahead as a test case, it was necessary and appropriate for him to seek the agreement first of the defendant, and then of the court. The court should proceed with such academic investigations only with great care, and in this case, had the claimant done as suggested, his leave to apply would have been revoked.
