stuck on how to answer this problem question on judicial review, can anyone help?Watch
Darcy’s solicitor, Jason, is a member of the Council. Fiona is Jason’s daughter. Darcy grants Fiona a tenancy at a reduced rent so that at least one of the flats will be occupied. Immediately on moving into the flat, Fiona makes a complaint to the Council about excessive noise from the Braveheart Pub at 10.30 p.m. on a Saturday night. The Council’s licensing committee meet to consider Fiona’s complaint, and decide to revoke McGregor’s music licence. They make this decision in exercise of a statutory power to revoke music licences ‘in the event of persistent infringements of the conditions of the licence’. McGregor has been given no notice of the complaint, and has not been given the opportunity to make representations in his defence. Jason is a member of the Council committee. Although he was present at the meeting, he did not participate in the discussion, nor did he vote. He did not, however, declare an interest. McGregor is bewildered by the decision and asks for the committee’s reasons. He is told that the committee does not have to give reasons. He asks if he has any right of appeal, and is told that there is none.
