Examination of Witnesses (Question 500)|
24 JANUARY 2007
Q500 Chairman: So all you really
know is the Court, you say, when it came to function, functioned
admirably, you had an extremely good hearing and you got an extremely
favourable decision, but it all took far too long and you do not
really know why, maybe because the Court was overloaded, maybe
because they simply were not sufficiently alert to the need for
and interest in getting fast decisions, and matters ought to be
better than they were for you but you cannot really take it much
further than that?
Mr McMahon: Regrettably not, and therefore the
rights of redress by means of having an incorrect decision turned
over are somewhat illusory.
Chairman: Yes. Unless any Member of the Committee
has any other questions for you, or you have anything you wish
to add to what you have told us, it remains for me to thank you
very much indeed for coming along and giving us an insider's view.
It has been very helpful. Thank you very much indeed.
