Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of CHURCHMAN) v WEST MIDLANDS PROBATION BOARD (2007)

PUBLISHED June 13, 2007

[2007] EWHC 1521 (Admin)

A probation board had not usurped the functions of the Parole Board by not implementing a plan for the release of a life prisoner into the community, as the Parole Board had made no decision or recommendation that the prisoner should be released into the community and there was nothing to circumscribe the probation board's discretion.
