Knights v Parole Board of England and Wales

Prison – Prisoner. The Deferrals and Adjournments, Guidance for Parole Board Members was not unlawful in its policy of not agreeing to defer parole reviews for a period of longer than four months, as it accommodated flexibility in individual cases. The Administrative Court further held that there had been no reason to direct an oral hearing to consider his parole review and no unfairness in the refusal of an oral hearing, and the defendant Parole Board's refusal to defer had not caused an unreasonable and unavoidable delay.
