Kate Gallafent QC acted for the Secretary of State for the Home Department in a challenge against the ‘100 year rule’ policy whereby records of criminal convictions are retained on the Police National Computer until the convicted person turns or is deemed to turn 100.  The challenge was brought by a number of women with historic convictions for soliciting, who argued that the rule was not in accordance with the law and / or disproportionate.  The Divisional Court dismissed the claim.
