Fit for Purpose in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Re NRA, HR, ML, MJW, VS, EJG, MT, DPW, NR and LM
    • Court of Protection

    Firstly, this is because they are or are likely to be cases that will not require a hearing and so they do not satisfy the criteria for full or investigative legal aid and legal help will not be available or will not fill that gap. Secondly, it is because after any funded investigation they are likely not to satisfy the criteria for full representation because there will be no need for a hearing.

    In his letter to the court (and so before he put in place the procedure that has enabled him to accept appointment in the majority of the ten test cases before me) the Official Solicitor points out that the Convention guarantees rights of access to the court that are practical and effective not theoretical and illusory.

    The way in which he advanced this argument shows that he must recognise that if this was a practically available option it would replicate the input that I have decided can be provided by an appropriate family member or friend and so satisfy the procedural safeguards required by Article 5 and common law fairness in non-controversial cases, without joining P as a party.

  • Alan Bates and Others v Post Office Ltd
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 15 Mar 2019

    No single one of the above list is determinative, with the exception of the first one. This is because if the express terms prevent the implication of a duty of good faith, then that will be the end of the matter. However, many of these characteristics will be found to be present where a contract is a relational one. In other cases on entirely different facts, it may be that there are other features which I have not identified above which are relevant to those cases.

  • Egan v Motor Services (Bath) Ltd (Note)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 18 Oct 2007

    The purpose of the judge providing a draft of the judgment before hand down is to enable the parties to spot typographical, spelling and minor factual errors which have escaped the judge's eye. It is also to give the parties the opportunity to attempt to reach agreement on costs and to consider whether they wish to appeal. Consideration of such matters before hand down can save costs.

  • The Queen (on the applicant of EO, RA, CE, OE and RAN) v Secretary of State for the Home Department
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 17 May 2013

    However, there may be cases in which information available to the decision maker leads him to the firm conclusion that the torture claim is untrue, that is to say incredible or very unlikely to be true. It would be a perverse application of the policy to require the Secretary of State to release from custody someone in respect of whom there exists independent evidence of torture but also where it is clear that the claim is untrue.

  • Balmoral Group Ltd v Borealis (UK) Ltd
    • Queen's Bench Division (Commercial Court)
    • 25 Jul 2006

    Whether or not one party's standard terms are incorporated depends on whether that which each party says and does is such as to lead a reasonable person in their position to believe that those terms were to govern their legal relations.
