"your argument puts you in a singular position" : Lord St. Leonards L. C. in Dimes v. Grand Junction Canal (Proprietors of) (1853) 3 H.L.C. 759, 768. : Natural justice has, in my opinion, not yet been the subject of a textbook written specifically about it, though it has undoubtedly been covered in books and articles on other topics to the extent that it is relevant to other topics. This lack of thorough treatment has caused me problems in practise on numerous times, so I have made an effort to address it in the pages of this book. In order to extract and illustrate the fundamental concepts of natural justice that the lack of a cohesive presentation of the topic has tended to obscure, I have also attempted to organise and categorise the information that is currently available on the topic.
