A Supreme Court for the UK

Tuesday 9 May 2006 9:00-9:30 (Radio 4 FM)

Repeated: Tuesday 9 May 2006 21:30-22:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Clive Anderson presents the series looking at legal issues.

The Law Lords are to be removed from their historic home in the House of Lords and placed in a new highest court in the land - the Supreme Court. But could (or should) a new court mean new powers? As our unwritten constitution evolves and senior judges are increasingly required to decide matters of policy, might they eventually challenge the very sovereignty of Parliament? Or is it all just an expensive cosmetic exercise?
