Faculty strongly opposed to judicial review 'rebalance'
The Faculty feared that decision makers could be given impunity, and the public would be stuck with bad decisions without any legal way of having them reconsidered.

"There is no question of it being appropriate for a government to seek to hamstring the judiciary's powers, in an attempt to make decision making easier...There is no case for any decisions being made immune from judicial review, since no power conferred on Government is unlimited. Any such suggestion is chilling.

"The simple issue is this: in a constitutional democracy, all power is limited. The location of the boundaries of power is a matter of law and, therefore, the task of the courts to explain."
