Administrative law - Judicial review - Application - Delay - Proceedings capable of having detrimental effect on third party - Effect of delay.
The court dismissed a judicial review action of a decision of the justices to accept jurisdiction to sentence the defendant for an offence of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, on the basis that the prosecution had failed to act sufficiently promptly in bringing the review action; litigants bringing judicial review proceedings which might detrimentally affect the rights of third parties being under a duty to act with the utmost promptitude.
