A first theme [of procedural review] is judicialisation and we shall find a general tendency to model the administrative process in the courts ’ own adjudicative image. Procedural requirements for the decision - making process may be just as important as the substantive law side of that process. .... But "experience in the salient" (a striking phrase of Sir John McManners in his memoir Fusilier) is a reminder that regard to how things should be done should not be overdone: ... The world of affairs would fall into unwanted chaos, if a literal approach were taken to every procedure, regardless of context or consequence, and if every irregularity robbed a ll subsequent acts or decisions of legal effect. In the housing field the consequences of chaos would probably be as detrimental to homeless persons in need of temporary accommodation as to the local housing authority under a duty to provide it.
