3rd Session of the 8th Republican Parliament

The Judicial Review (Amendment) Bill, 2005

An Act to amend the Judicial Review Act, No. 60 of 2000

The purpose of this Bill is to limit the categories of persons who may apply to the High Court for relief respecting a decision of an inferior court, tribunal, public body, public authority or person acting in the exercise of a public duty or function in accordance with any law.

The Bill seeks to accomplish its purpose by repealing the provision permitting persons to apply for judicial review under the Judicial Review Act, 2000 where the relief sought would be justifiable in the public interest and by making the consequential amendments.

The Bill lapsed upon the prorogation of the Third Session of the Eighth Parliament on 08 September 2005.
