General Dental Council v Fajemisin: [2013] EWHC 3501 (Admin);   [2013] WLR (D)  447

“In addition to cases in which a previous decision could be revisited under the equivalent of the slip rule, a public body had jurisdiction to revisit a decision which had been made in ignorance of the true facts when the factual basis on which it had proceeded had amounted to a fundamental mistake of fact. That power existed irrespective of whether the decision fell to be classified as judicial or administrative in nature.”
