The Attorney-General of The Gambia v N’Jie: PC 3 May 1961

(West Africa) Lord Denning said: ‘The words ‘person aggrieved’ are of wide import and should not be subjected to a restrictive interpretation. They do not include, of course, a mere busybody who is interfering in things which do not concern him; but they do include a person who has a genuine grievance because an order has been made which prejudicially affects his interests.’
