Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of C) v SECRETARY OF STATE FOR JUSTICE (2008)

PUBLISHED July 28, 2008

[2008] EWCA Civ 882

The failure to produce a race equality impact assessment prior to laying the Secure Training Centre (Amendment) Rules 2007 before Parliament was a defect in the procedure that was of substantial, and not merely technical, importance and the rule of law and the proper administration of race relations law required the Rules to be quashed.
