ADEQUACY OF DISTRICT JUDGE’S REASONS AND SCRUTINY OF APPLICATION

The decision of a district judge to adjourn the trial in respect of an offence of being in charge of a vehicle with excess alcohol was not Wednesbury unreasonable. Without an adjournment it would have been necessary to drop the charge, and she had been entitled to find the matter a serious one and that it was in the public interest to see such cases adjudicated on.
