HCA International Ltd v Competition and Markets Authority and another

Practice – Order. The appellant appealed against the decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal, upholding its appeal against the respondent Competition and Markets Authority's decisions, but remitting them to the original inquiry group. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, gave guidance on the circumstances in which a court or tribunal quashing a decision by an administrative body should remit that decision to be remade by a freshly constituted decision-making body. It held that the matter should be remitted to the original inquiry group as a fair-minded and informed observer would not find a real possibility of bias and absent reasonably perceived unfairness.
