Abstract:When and how is the issue of an adequate alternative remedy to be determined? This article considers which of the two stages at which the court has to exercise a discretion - the permission stage and the substantive hearing - ought to be decisive in this regard. It asks how the issue is to be dealt with at the permission stage and what exactly the court should decide. Should the court determine the alternative remedy issue definitively at the permission stage, or should it merely see if it is an arguable point and grant permission, allowing the issue to be argued in full at the substantive stage? This article also looks at the exercise of the court's discretion in the context of the existence of an alternative remedy, and reflects upon the significance of the question for the permission stage.
