Considers the options for imposing liability on the state for losses incurred by citizens through official action and for obtaining compensation, questioning the extent to which the state is protected by Crown immunity. Comments on academic writings, including those of H. Street, and compares this to other legal systems. Suggests how compensation could be administered and paid, and how discretionary ex gratia payments work, highlighting examples of public scandals which led to compensation being paid. Notes the provisions of the Law Commission consultation paper on administrative redress and other public policy governing state compensation schemes
