    R v British Coal Corporation and Secretary of State for Trade and Industry ex parte Vardy and others [1993] IRLR 104 HC (0 other reports)

British Coal had a statutory obligation to use a review procedure agreed with the trade unions in relation to proposed pit closures, holds the High Court in R v British Coal Corporation and Secretary of State for Trade and Industry ex parte Vardy and others. Therefore a decision taken in breach of this obligation was susceptible to judicial review, as was a decision of the President of the Board of Trade to fund the costs of those closures.
