Judicial Reviews in the Upper Tribunal

The House of Lords Committee debated an amendment to the Crime and Courts Bill in order to transfer all immigration, asylum and nationality judicial reviews from the High Court to the Upper Tribunal. Currently the Upper Tribunal is limited to judicial reviews in fresh claim matters. It was agreed that the amendment should proceed. From 02 July 2012 the judicial reviews will be transferred on a staggered basis. The full debate can be read here (column 494 onwards).
