Examples of irrelevant considerations

The question of whether a particular matter is irrelevant is to be determined by considering the context of the case and the purpose of the legislation that is being relied upon.

Examples of factors that the Court may consider to be irrelevant include:

  • the decision-maker’s need to get something done quickly
  • expected media reaction to the decision
  • personal opinions and assumptions not based on evidence.
