Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill — Right of Appeal to a Judge in Respect of Judicial Decisions Taken by Staff — 12 Dec 2018 at 15:00
The majority of MPs voted not to give a right of appeal to a judge in respect of a judicial decision taken by an authorised member of staff.
MPs were considering the Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment 5, in the schedule, page 11, line 32, leave out subsection 67C and insert—
- “67C Right to judicial reconsideration of decision made by an authorised person
- A party to any decision made by an authorised person in the execution of the person’s duty as an authorised person exercising a relevant judicial function, by virtue of section 67B(1), may apply in writing, within 14 days of the service of the order, to have the decision reconsidered by a judge of the relevant court within 14 days from the date of application.”
- This amendment would grant people subject to a decision made under delegated powers a statutory right to judicial reconsideration.
Had it not been rejected the amendment would have impacted paragraph 32 of the schedule to the Bill.
