Abstract:

In Jackson and Others v Her Majesty's Attorney General, the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords faced an unusual case – one in which it had to decide not only what Parliament intended, but whether it created a statute in the first place. Though the Committee was unanimous in finding that Parliament did indeed create a statute, the decision reveals deep divisions within the panel concerning the status of the doctrine of parliamentary supremacy and a profound difference in commitment to an exclusively source-based approach to law.
