Description

Control of Government Action: Text, Cases and Commentary, 5th edition is a highly-respected work that provides comprehensive coverage of the legal controls on government decision-making in each Australian jurisdiction, supported by legislation, case extracts and commentary.


The book displays the breadth and diversity of Australian administrative law. The different role played by courts, tribunals, ombudsmen and other review bodies is comprehensively covered. The criteria applied by those bodies in reviewing the legality and propriety of government administrative action are examined in an integrated manner that best shows the options available to an aggrieved person. Public law concepts and theories that influence government decision making and administrative review are covered.


Each chapter of this fifth edition has been revised and refined to reflect the changing face of Australian administrative law. This includes a fresh emphasis on the High Court’s constitutional review jurisdiction, the concept of jurisdictional error, the demise of legitimate expectation as a pivotal concept, the status accorded to human rights considerations, and unreasonableness developments since Minister for Immigration and Citizenship v Li. There are new sections on integrity commissions, public interest disclosures and notifiable data breaches. Recent landmark rulings of the High Court and other courts that are discussed include Burns v Corbett; Kaldas v Barbour; Practical Shooting Institute (New Zealand) Inc v Commissioner of Police; MIBP v Eden; Haritos v FCT; MIBP v WZARH; Muggeridge v MIBP; Graham v MIBP; Knight v Victoria; Duncan v ICAC; North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency Ltd v Northern Territory; Palmer v Ayres; MIBP v SZVFW; Hossain v MIBP; Privacy Commissioner v Telstra Corp; Attorney-General v Drefus. Legislative and policy changes are addressed in areas such as migration, privacy, subordinate legislation, and deregulation. Many recent articles on topical areas of administrative law are referenced. Important decisions from other jurisdictions are noted, notably the United Kingdom, such as the decisions in Miller v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union; Youssef v Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs; Keyu v Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs, Gallaher v Competition & Markets Authority; and Sir Cliff Richard OBE v BBC.
