LORD HAILSHAM

CHIEF CONSTABLE OF NORTH WALES POLICE V EVANS [1982] 3 ALL ER 141 AT 143

The remedy of JR is concerned with reviewing not the merits of the decision in respect of which the application for JR is made,but the decision making process itself. It is important to remember in every case that the purpose of the JR  is to ensure that individuals are given fair treatment by the authority to which he has been subjected and that it is no part of the purpose to substitute the opinion of the judiciary or of the individual judges  for that of the authority constituted by law to decide the matters in question.
