R (Main) v Minister for Legal Aid [2007] EWCA Civ 1147

“In refusing an application for discretionary funding for full legal representation at an inquest into deaths following a rail accident, the Minister for Legal Aid had not acted irrationally in concluding that no significant wider public interest would be compromised, nor did the refusal constitute a breach of art 2 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.”
