Summary There have been numerous significant developments in adminsitrative law since publication of the last edition in 1999. Legislative changes include the Local Government Acts 1999 and 2000, the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Regulatory Reform Act 2001. The impact of the Civil Procedure Rules on remedies is also assessed. The case law is discussed and analysed in detail, important examples being Alconbury and Runa Begum (on judicial review and process rights), R v A (on the interpretation of the Human Rights Act, s. 3), Daly (on the standard of review under the Human Rights Act), Leonard Cheshire (on the meaning of public authority under the Human Rights Act), and Barrett and Phelps (on negligence liability)
