New President of the GRC

The Ministry of Justice has today announced the new President of the General Regulatory Chamber to be Judge Peter Lane. He will take up his post on 15 December, replacing Judge Nicholas Warren, who is retiring.

As President of the GRC, Judge Lane will doubtless hear a fair share of Information Rights appeals – as his predecessor did – and will have some familiarity with the regime from his time in the last four years or so sitting in the Upper Tribunal.

Panopticon wishes Judge Lane all the best in his new role (in which guise many Panopticonners will doubtless see more of him), and Judge Warren all the best in his retirement.
