In R v the Leicestershire Fire Authority ex parte Thompson  IRLR 166 HC, the High Court held that the disciplinary proceedings adopted by the respondents during which the Chief Fire Officer, who was not a member of the disciplinary committee, was invited to enter the room whilst the committee were considering what sentence they would impose on the applicant, were a denial of natural justice. An Order of Certiorari would be made to quash the award made by the respondents by which the applicant was reduced by one rank.
