39 Essex Chambers blog:  High court finds government’s national disability strategy unlawful

The piece reports that a claim for judicial review brought by four disabled people has been allowed.

The claim challenges the government’s recently published National Disability Strategy on the basis that:

  • the Defendant’s “Survey” carried out prior to the publication of the Strategy amounted to a consultation at common law,
  • the consultation failed to comply with the requirement that the proposer must give sufficient reasons for any proposal to permit of intelligent consideration and response.
