Very interesting piece on allowed appeals and quality of decision making by Robert Thomas of the University of Manchester. Particularly interesting given the reduced appeal numbers owing to high appeal fees in employment and now seemingly in immigration.

There is also an important debate in relation to the rate of allowed appeals. This is something that public bodies should monitor and oversee. An upsurge in allowed appeals calls for investigation to determine likely causes and to devise solutions. If public bodies are signed up to the ‘right first time’ agenda and better decision-making, then there needs to be a closer focus upon allowed appeals. Looking to the future, there also needs to be closer attention paid to internal review procedures.
