Leigh Day seeks funds for grid case

Leigh, Day & Co joint senior partner Martyn Day has asked the Legal Aid Board for funding to take a case against the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to Europe. Day hopes to apply to the Court of Appeal for referral to the European Court of Justice of an action involving the National Grid Company. Last week the Divisional Court dismissed an application brought on behalf of children living in South Woodford for judicial review of the Secretary of State's decision not to issue regulations to restrict the electromagnetic fields from cables laid as part of a national grid.
