As set out in our manifesto, the Government will ensure that judicial review is available to protect the rights of the individuals against an overbearing state, while ensuring that it is not abused to conduct politics by another means or to create needless delays.

Discussions on how to meet this commitment are continuing within Government and further details will be announced in due course.
