2.    Suppose that the government has decided to set up a scheme to provide compensation for deserving claimants who suffer injury in the course of medical treatment by the NHS. Two schemes are being considered: – the first would provide very detailed rules as to eligibility; the second would leave very wide discretion. Under the first, decisions on individual claims would be made by an independent tribunal; under the second, decision would be made by officials in the government department. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of these rival schemes.

3. “The effective preservation of the rule of law demands that any citizen should be seen as having a ‘sufficient interest’ in seeking judicial review of government decision which he/she considers unlawful. Standing rules should therefore be abolished”. To what extend do you agree with this contention?
