R (G-A-Y Group Ltd) v Secretary of State for Health & Social Care


Dates of case

Nicholas Chapman, led by Sir James Eadie QC, represented the Secretary of State on the judicial review of the 10pm hospitality curfew, imposed by the Government in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The claimant, which owns and operates a number of well-known nightclubs, challenged the curfew as contained in various Regulations made under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 on grounds that they were irrational, unreasoned and breached its property rights as guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights.

Mr Justice Lane refused permission to apply for judicial review and the claimant subsequently withdrew its claim.
