Judgments - Matthews (Appellant) v. Ministry of Defence (Respondents)

(back to preceding text)

    144. In these circumstances I do not consider it necessary or desirable to attempt to assess whether section 10, if tested as a procedural bar, would meet the test of proportionality. There would be serious arguments either way and as it is not necessary to express a view I prefer not to do so.

    145. For these reasons and for the further reasons given by your Lordships, with which I agree, I would dismiss this appeal.
