The Law Society and Others, Regina (on The Application of) v The Lord Chancellor: CA 25 Mar 2015

Appeal against rejection of request for judicial review of respondent’s decisions introducing contracts for solicitors to provide Duty Provider Work (DPW) across England and Wales, to advise criminal suspects at local police stations and, in certain circumstances, at magistrates’ courts.
Held: The appeal failed. In view of the rational and lawful evaluation of the consultation responses made by the Lord Chancellor, it was not incumbent on him to investigate the current underlying facts in any greater detail than he did.
