Gateshead Council v Crozier

Road traffic – Hackney carriage licence. The appellant local authority revoked the respondent's Hackney carriage licence. The respondent's appeal to the magistrates' court was allowed. The authority appealed by way of case stated. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the justices had been entitled to assess and evaluate each part of the evidence, including governmental guidance, and give such weight to each part as seemed to them fit. However, they had only been entitled to set aside the decision of the authority and substitute their own if they had come to the conclusion that the decision of the authority had been wrong.
