How detailed should the reasons be?

The level of detail required of decision-makers will depend on the circumstances of each case. Generally, the Court will require more detailed reasons to be given for important decisions than for purely administrative ones. However, there is  no uniform standard that will be applied in all cases, other than that the reasons must always be intelligible and adequate. The reasons given need not be lengthy and will be sufficient if they show that the decision-maker directed its mind to the parties’ submissions and tell the parties in broad terms why the decision was made.
