Leading Cases
  • Attorney General v Prince Ernest Augustus of Hanover
    • House of Lords
    • 05 Dic 1956

    So it is that I conceive it to be my right and duty to examine every word of a Statute in its context and I use "context" in its widest sense which I have already indicated as including not only other enacting provisions of the same statute, but its preamble, the existing state of the law, other statutes in pari materia, and the mischief which I can, by those and other legitimate means, discern the statute was intended to remedy.

  • R v Clarke (Terry)
    • Court of Appeal
    • 04 Nov 1996

    It is urged on behalf of the appellant that this is not the case in which this Court should raise the tariff for this type of offence.

  • CTB v News Group Newspapers Ltd and Another
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 23 May 2011

    It is obvious that if the purpose of this injunction were to preserve a secret, it would have failed in its purpose.
