Carltona Ltd v Commissioners of Works

[1943] ER 560

Case summary last updated at 05/02/2020 09:34 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Carltona Ltd v Commissioners of Works

A requisition order was challenged on the grounds that a civil servant had ordered it and the minister hadn’t considered the order. The court dismissed this challenge since government couldn’t work unless the civil servants were able to take decisions on a minister’s behalf. The minister himself, it was stated, is still responsible for the decision and is accountable to parliament for it (despite not issuing it personally)
