R (Friends of the Earth and another) v Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change – WLR Daily

R (Friends of the Earth and another) v Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change [2009] EWCA Civ 810; [2009] WLR (D) 276

“On an application for judicial review of the Secretary of State’s alleged failure to take steps to implement targets specified in the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000 and the UK Fuel Poverty Strategy, and in particular for eliminating fuel poverty ‘as far as reasonably practicable’, where the legal obligation on the Secretary of State had been defined in terms of effort and endeavour, arguments as to the desirability of the Government’s policy on the use of available money were not apt to found an argument of breach of statutory duty and judicial review, absent a rationality challenge.”
