Introduction to Administrative Law
In this case, a senior police officer wrote a report on an applicant to the Gaming Board for a gaming licence.
The application for a licence was unsuccessful whereupon the applicant started legal proceedings against the officer alleging criminal libel arising from the letter sent to the Gaming Board.
An attempt to obtain discovery of the letter was resisted by the Home Secretary and the Board. It was decided that the letter should remain confidential, primarily because any disclosure would make it that much more difficult for the Board to fulfil its function in relation to the issue of gaming licences where there was a need for a candid assessment of applicants’ characters.
Consequently, the public interest in ensuring the suitability of applicants outweighed the possibility of injustice to a suitable applicant who might be concerned with possibly defamatory material in correspondence with the Board.
