R (on the application of Vigrass) v Parole Board of England and Wales

Prison – Prison conditions. The defendant Parole Board had fallen into error by failing to comply with the Secretary of State's request for an opinion on whether the claimant had been ready to move to open conditions. However, the Administrative Court held that a quashing order would be inappropriate so far as the Parole Board had determined that the claimant should not be released on licence and mandatory order was made, requiring the Parole Board to produce a further decision letter addressing whether the claimant was ready to be moved to open prison conditions.
