Full Hearing on Thursday
It looks like the hearing on Thursday is the Full Hearing
not the permission stage. That is a good idea taking into account the timing issues.
For those who are interested. As far as Judicial Reviews go there are three stages:
- The "pre-action protocol". This started on 5th April, but was not responded to by the government.
- The permission stage, where a judge decides whether there is an arguable case
- The final hearing.
It appears (on the basis of phone calls I have just had) that we are now going for the full hearing on Thurday.
Further Comment (20/4): It turns out it is actually the Permission stage.
