[2007] EWHC 1495 (Admin)

The secretary of state had not acted unfairly or in breach of legitimate expectation in deciding to abolish a discretionary ex gratia scheme, under which compensation was paid to those who had suffered miscarriages of justice, without notice or prior consultation. There was nothing amounting to a representation or promise either that the scheme would continue indefinitely or that the secretary of state would consult or give notice before withdrawing it.

DC (May LJ, Gray J)
