Challenge to bias must be made immediately
Steadman-Byrne v Amjad and Others
Court of Appeal
“A clear manifestation of bias on the part of a tribunal should ordinarily be drawn to its attention immediately. Appellate courts tended not to look favourably on complaints of vitiating bias made only after the complainant had taken his chance on the outcome and found it unwelcome.”
