To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what the planned timescale is for the consultation period of the independent panel to look at judicial review.
The Independent Panel on Administrative Law commenced its work in July 2020 which is expected to run until the end of the year. The panel intends to gather evidence from a wide range of interested and representative parties including legal bodies, academia, professional associations, trade bodies, as well as from those who act for claimants and those who defend judicial reviews, amongst others. This will be a time limited exercise and anyone who wishes to submit comments or evidence may do so before the 19 October 2020. Details for how to submit are available on GOV.UK. A copy of the call for evidence will be deposited in the libraries of both Houses.
