R (on the application of the Welsh Language Commissioner) v National Savings and Investments

Wales – Welsh language. National Savings and Investments decided to withdraw its Welsh language scheme. In judicial review proceedings, the Divisional Court held that NS&I had had the power to revoke the scheme. However, the Welsh Language Commissioner had had a legitimate expectation that the defendant would not make any changes to the scheme before consulting her and the consultation that had taken place had fallen short of that expectation. NS&I's decision had, therefore, been unlawful.
