Judicial Review and Courts Bill — Clause 1 — Quashing orders — 26 Apr 2022 at 14:15

The majority of MPs voted to allow courts quashing a decision by a public body to remove or limit any retrospective effect of the quashing.

MPs were considering the Judicial Review and Courts Bill.[1][2][3]

The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1.

Lords amendment 1 stated:[4][5]

  • Page 1, leave out line 9

Had it not been rejected this would have impacted Clause 1 of the Bill[2], and removed subsection (b) from the following:

  • (1) A quashing order may include provision—
  • (a) for the quashing not to take effect until a date specified in the order, or
  • (b) removing or limiting any retrospective effect of the quashing

The Explanatory Notes to the amendment stated:[5]

  • Amendment 1 removes new section 29A(1)(b), which was the subsection conferring the new power on the court to limit or remove the retrospective effect of quashing orders
