Further liberalisation of the standing requirement was seen in R v Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, ex parte World Development Movement Ltd  1 WLR 386. World Development Movement Ltd (WDM) sought judicial review of a decision by the Foreign Secretary to make a substantial grant to the government of Malaysia towards the construction of a hydro-electric project on the Pergau Dam using powers in the Overseas Development and Co-operation Act 1980. In granting WDM standing, Rose LJ stated that there were a number of significant factors in the case that contributed to the decision. These included: the importance of vindicating the rule of law; the likely absence of any other responsible challenger; the nature of the breach of duty against which relief was sought; and the prominent role of the applicants in giving advice, guidance, and assistance on overseas aid.
