R (on the application of WEDDLE) v SECRETARY OF STATE FOR JUSTICE (2013)

PUBLISHED July 30, 2013

[2013] EWHC 2323 (Admin)

In failing to provide a life prisoner with the means by which he could demonstrate that he constituted a reduced risk such as to enable him to progress to a lower security prison category and to become suitable for release, the Secretary of State for Justice had breached his public law duty to act rationally.
