R v SS Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs ex parte World Development Movement

[1995] 1 All ER 611:

Case summary last updated at 05/01/2020 18:20 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case R v SS Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs ex parte World Development Movement

Legislation granted the secretary of state power to make grants in support of overseas development projects. He decided to make a grant in support of one that was clearly not economically viable, but where the grant would have protected the UK government’s credibility, and the QBD held that his decision was unlawful and contrary to the purpose of the statutory scheme, which, in the absence of the word “unsound” must be taken to relate only to viable overseas projects.
