Wheeler v Office of the Prime Minister and another

Extradition – European arrest warrant. The claimant sought permission to bring a claim for judicial review of a proposed decision by the government to give notice to the European Council that the United Kingdom wished to participate in the Council Framework Decision (JHA) 2002/584. The Divisional Court, in refusing permission, held that the claimant's contention that the government could not give such notice without first holding a referendum was not arguable and that the alleged promises that there would be a vote in Parliament before such notice were not capable of giving rise to an enforceable legitimate expectation.
