Letter to Michael Gove on Access to Justice - Government Proposals on Costs in Environmental Cases

The stated purpose of your Department's September 2015 consultation was to identify how
to improve the rules relating to costs protection in certain environmental challenges. The
purpose of the proposed rules on disclosure of financial information is to give the courts
information to protect the judicial review process from misuse.
I strongly believe that implementation of the proposals outlined in the two consultations
undertaken by your Department last year would undermine the role citizens play in the
protection of their local environment.
