Court of Appeal dismisses appeal of High Court rejection of judicial review proceedings which sought to quash a decision to remove the applicant from a work programme for misbehaviour, finding that: a) the decision sought to be challenged was not a decision of the Minister for Social Protection but, rather, a separate entity that was not party to the proceedings; b) it was a matter of private law and not public law; and c) the impugned decision cannot be imputed to the Minister.

Judicial review – application to quash a decision to remove the applicant from a work programme for misbehaviour – decision sought to be challenged was not a decision of the Minister for Social Protection but rather a separate entity who was not party to the proceedings – reliefs sought refused.
