Abstract

This work evaluates the role of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration [PCA] within the United Kingdom's administrative law system. This form of administrative redress was established by the Parliamentary Commissioner Act 1967. The encumbent of the office has to investigate 'maladministration' which has caused 'injustice' to the complainant. This test is established by the enabling statute. The actual procedure of the office is examined briefly. Some criticisms of the PCA system are also considered in this provision of background material.
