Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of SMITH) v PAROLE BOARD : R (on the application of WEST) v PAROLE BOARD (2005)

PUBLISHED January 27, 2005

While the common law duty of procedural fairness did not require the Parole Board to hold an oral hearing in every case where a determinate sentence prisoner released on licence resisted his recall to prison, the Parole Board's duty was not as constricted as had hitherto been held and assumed.
