Starbones Ltd [2020] EWHC 526 (Admin), Lang J
Richard Turney appeared for the Claimant
Gwion Lewis appeared for the Secretary of State
James Maurici QC appeared for the Third Defendant

“85.      At DL 16, the Secretary of State applied paragraph 48 of the Framework to these facts, and decided that, as the DRLP [emerging policy] was still at a relatively early stage, any objections were not yet fully resolved and its policies might still be subject to change, the DRLP policies carried limited weight.  This was an exercise of judgment on the part of the Secretary of State, not a misinterpretation of the Framework.”
