Judicial Review

This has been posted in the goverment section but as it is a right or power more closely associated with the Judiciary I thought it worth posting here too.

Judicial review is a power of the High Court to review how a given decision by the state was made to confirm that it was done so properly and in accordance with the law.

Important to note the following are beyond the Scope of Judicial review:

Proceedings in Parliment

National Security decisions

Any Court above the High Court and the Crown Court only very rarely. The Magistrates courts and County Courts however can be subject to Judicial Review.

Dear Contributors,

We are now halfway through the refining phase and would like to remind you of the new features available to every contributor at this stage. Now, you can add, amend or withdraw votes already cast, and this is very important for us to ensure ideas truly reflect your preferences.

We would like contributors to please suggest ways that the idea owner can improve and refine this idea and would invite the idea author to think about how they wish to incorporate the comments made (including those in the previous stage) into their idea. Don't hesitate to message the facilitators (myself and Suki) if you have any questions about this stage of refining the idea.
