President of the Queen’s Bench Division at the Leeds Admin Court  

30/03/2010

The commitment of the court service and the judiciary to the regional administrative courts was emphasised last week by the attendance of the President of the Queen’s Bench Division at the High Court in Leeds.

The President was in attendance to convene a Divisional Court together with Mr Justice Langstaff, in what was a first for the Leeds District Registry.

The regional courts opened to much anticipation in April 2009 and have been well supported, particularly here in Manchester.

The Queen’s Bench Division is one of the three divisions of the High Court, and is responsible for all Administrative and Divisional Court work.

The President, Sir Anthony May, had a distinguished career at the Bar before becoming a member of the judiciary in 1991; he was appointed as the President of the QBD in 2008. The former President of the Queen’s Bench Division, Sir Igor Judge, is now the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales.

The Divisional Court was convened to dispose of an appeal by way of case stated, which turned upon the construction of section 7 (3) (c) of the Road Traffic Act 1988, the provision which requires a doctor to give his consent to the taking of blood from suspects thought to have committed an offence of driving whilst unfit through drugs.

The hearing, which was also attended by the High Sheriff of West Yorkshire, is a boost for the regional administrative courts, which continue to thrive.

The Appellant was represented by GCN's Matthew Stanbury , and Andrew Dalrymple of Grayson Willis Bennett, Sheffield.
