Alongside the main Transparency Review report, the lead judges of the Financial Remedies Court also published a consultation last month seeking views on a proposed ‘reporting permission order’ that is envisaged for regulating access to and use of documents by journalists and bloggers interested in the work of the Financial Remedies Court.
The consultation period closed on Friday. Here is our response. In it we raise a number of queries about the intended meaning and operation of the proposed order, and make some suggestions for simplification and clarification, in the hope that it can be made to work efficiently and effectively for all concerned.
In accordance with our usual practice, if you or your organisation has produced a response we’d be grateful if you could let us know, and either provide us with a link to that response if already published, or alternatively send us a copy if you would be happy for us to publish that response. We will link to any such responses below.
