R (on the application of Drax Power Ltd and another) v Her Majesty's Treasury and another

Environment – Protection. The Administrative Court dismissed the claimants' application for judicial review of the removal of the exemption for renewable source electricity from the climate change levy. The defendants had not promoted any legitimate expectation in the claimants to the effect that the exemption would not be withdrawn without providing a lead time of two years or equivalent value and the decision had been proportionate.
