Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004

Section 36: Power of auditor to make a claim for judicial review

81.This section empowers an auditor to make a claim for judicial review where he believes that a decision or failure to act by a local government body in Wales would have an effect on the body’s accounts - for instance, a failure to reverse a decision that could lead to an unlawful item of account. It also provides that the fact that other powers may be available under Part 2 is not a ground for refusing an auditor’s claim for judicial review.
