Mr. Willetts

Since the Department was formed in May 1992, there has been no legislation introduced into Parliament by the Cabinet Office, Office of Public Service which either reverses the outcome of a judicial review or seeks to give effect by legislation to the outcome of a judicial review.

Also, since May 1992, no decisions made by the Department have been challenged by way of judicial review.
