Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of ROBERT BYRNE) v PAROLE BOARD (2011)

PUBLISHED August 15, 2011

[2011] EWHC 2598 (Admin)

The court refused an application by a prisoner for judicial review of a parole board's decision not to grant him an oral hearing following an annual review. He had given the board no reasons why an oral hearing should take place, and fairness did not require such a hearing.
