Example text

Cf traditional ultra vires model and common law model. Normative justification Normative justification of judicial review involves evaluation of the normative foundations of the supervisory jurisdiction in terms of its scope and the principles which it vindicates. The evaluation is directed towards the desirability of review in policy terms. Normative justification must be distinguished from constitutional justification. Glossary xxxi Passive artificiality The traditional ultra vires model suffers from passive artificiality because it provides an explanation of the derivation of the grounds of review which is implausible: Parliament’s intention is invoked as the foundation of review, yet Parliament, in reality, is usually silent, and hence appears to be passive, about this matter.

These important developments raise two particular questions. First, can the ultra vires doctrine provide a coherent constitutional justification for review of non-statutory powers? Secondly, if not, how may judicial control of such power be rationalised in constitutional terms? The answer to the former question is firmly, and self-evidently, in the negative. Even if the ultra vires principle is perceived as an adequate justification for review of statutory power, it is meaningless to refer to it outside that context.

4 It is the courts which have sought to fill this accountability deficit by requiring—through judicial review—that the executive exercises its power fairly, reasonably and consistently with the scheme which Parliament, in the first place, prescribed in U “‘ 1 H W R Wade and C F Forsyth, Administrative Law (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2000) at 1, quoting A J P Taylor, English History, 1914–1945 (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1965) at 1. 2 Wade and Forsyth, above n. 1, at 1. ), Administrative Law and Government Action (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1994); Sir Stephen Sedley, “The Sound of Silence: Constitutional Law Without a Constitution” (1994) 110 LQR 270.
