Practice - Injunction - Interlocutory - Variation - Offender applying for parole - Parole hearing being held in private - Second claimant providing evidence at hearing - Defendant newspaper company in possession of evidence - Offender in possession of that evidence - Injunction restraining defendant from divulging evidence - Secretary of State ordering enquiry - Secretary of State applying to vary injunction - Whether injunction should be varied.
Practice Injunction. In the instant case, an application by the Secretary of State to vary an injunction restraining the defendant newspaper company from publishing information relating to a parole board hearing would be allowed. The variation of the injunction enabling documents to be disclosed to a particular police force was for the purpose of police investigations and would not have damaged, but supported, the underlying injunction.
