There is another way, too, in which the classification of primary adjudication as "administrative" causes injustice. Primary adjudicators are often perceived as too junior to exercise judgment or discretionary powers. Thus decisions may be made in a way that is too automated. If a case goes on appeal, it may be then be decided by the exercise of judgment or discretionary powers. That structure tends to defeat another basic principle of justice: namely, a case should be decided by the same criteria at all levels.

But that is a reason for prescreening and classifying the incoming case-load, so that the cases requiring the more sophisticated treatment can receive it at first instance. While I have mentioned judicial review as a cause of inadequacy in primary adjudication, other causes may be more significant, particularly the political and bureaucratic pressures. Consider the dilemma of a harassed administrator in charge of a system that pays benefits out of public funds. Various interest groups demand that the payments be made, at least in particular cases.

Secondly, there needs t o be established a general administrative appeals tribunal empowered to review the merits of decisions presently dispersed amongst a multiplicity of disparate and uncoordinated tribunals. This Franksian "plurality" model has always resisted change but it has become problematical in a number of areas 4 and the time seems ripe for reappraisal. There is much to explore in the thesis that we should be seeking to improve our system of administrative justice by making it more integrated in remedial terms, especially through matching different claims claims to discrete remedies and procedures, and by promoting institutional coherence.
