Regina v Secretary of State for Home Department and Governor of Her Majesty’s Prison Risley ex parte Hargreaves, Briggs and Green: CA 20 Nov 1996

The only legitimate expectation of the prisoners was to have their applications individually considered in light of whatever policy was in force at the time.
