R (on the application of Dixon) v Secretary of State for Justice

Human rights – Right to liberty and security. The judge's conclusion, that there had been no breach of the ancillary duty as explained in R (on the application of Haney) v Secretary of State for Justice and associated appeals ([2015] 2 All ER 822), could not be faulted. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the claimant's appeal against the judge's dismissal of his judicial review proceedings, seeking a declaration that the defendant Secretary of State had acted in breach of duty under public law and/or under art 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights in having failed to provide a timely psychological report.
