“It seems to me there is an arguable case..”

The BBC reports that Mr Justice Weatherup has granted leave for a judicial review of the withdrawal of funding from the UPRG-negotiated CTI project following a legal challenge by an employee of Farset.

Granting leave for a judicial review, Mr Justice Weatherup referred to the challenge to the minister’s authority to make the decision on her own. He said: “It seems to me there is an arguable case she made the decision herself without referring it to the executive.”

Which would appear to point us back to those disputed minutes of that Executive meeting.. and, no doubt, there’ll now be renewed examination of what was said at the time.
