*Traveller Movement v Ofcom

Broadcasting – Content of programs. The defendant Ofcom dismissed the claimant registered charity's complaint about a broadcast of the interested party (Channel 4). The claimant challenged the decision. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the applicable procedure had not been unfair and had not lacked rational justification by virtue of the fact that only Channel 4 had had the opportunity to make representations on Ofcom's preliminary view. Further, Ofcom had not failed to obtain further information or assistance from the Equality and Human Rights Commission and had not irrationally concluded that there had been insufficient evidence that harm had been caused to children.
