Court:

The claimant sought judicial review of decisions to revoke his permission to ring bells at a cathedral and to require him to sign an agreement that placed conditions on him ringing bells in other churches within the dioceses. He argued that the decisions were irrational, unjustified and contrary to ECHR, art 8. Held: The claims were not amenable to judicial review and did not come within the scope of the Human Rights Act.
