Michaelmas term in the Supreme Court
The remainder of this term has a distinctly devolved taste about it, with significant devolution issues from both Scotland and Wales arriving in Parliament Square.
Monday 12 November will see the Court sit in the case of Imperial Tobacco Limited v The Lord Advocate. This litigation is one of the most closely watched Scottish devolution cases to have arisen since the 2000 Act. It arises from the decision of the Scottish Government to ban the display of tobacco products for sale and prohibit their sale from automatic machines.
