R (Clift) v SS Home Department, 29 April 2004.

Sunday 9 May 2004 at 8:05 pm | In News | Post Comment

The role of the Secretary of State for the Home Department in determining when offenders should be released from prison on licence has been progressively reduced.
This case decided that the Home Secretary’s power to determine the release on licence of prisoners who were serving determinate sentences of 15 years or more was reasonable and did not contravene art 5, when read with art 14, of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.

Whole case here
