The need for a renewed examination of remedies under fhe Welfare State is, if anything, even greater in 1975 than it was when the first edition of this book appeared in 1968.
Professor Street's Hamlyn Lectures were hailed then as a new and timely departure for the series, examining for the first time new systems of tribunals and public inquiries, and a whole spectrum of state agencies from Licensing hearings to the Ombudsman.
Today, the Welfare State regulates our lives more than ever before, and its development has greatly increased the potential area of dispute between government and citizen. Do aggrieved citizens find a speedy remedy? Can we obtain justice in the Welfare State?
Professor Street draws on extensive personal experience, having served as chairman of local National Insurance and Rent Tribunals and as a member of Manchester Rent Assessment Committee and a Race Relations Conciliation Committee.
Although his views remain substantially the same, he has been able to take account of the considerable changes in the law, particularly in legislation, which have taken place since 1968. This new edition of so important a work will appeal to trade union officials, social service workers, citizens' advice bureaux, lawyers and sociologists; its conclusions are of critical importance for us all.
