Robert Buckland – 2020 Comments on the Judicial Review Process

Comments made by Robert Buckland, the Lord Chancellor, on 31 July 2020.

Judicial review will always be an essential part of our democratic constitution – protecting citizens from an overbearing state.

This review will ensure this precious check on government power is maintained, while making sure the process is not abused or used to conduct politics by another means.

I’d like to thank Lord Faulks and the other panel members for undertaking this important piece of work and look forward to their recommendations.
