This chapter examines the constitutional foundations of adjudication on ‘devolution issues’ and the role and character of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. It argues that the 1998 devolution Acts caused a lack of clarity and confusion at the apex of the UK's legal systems and that ‘for the sake of constitutional and democratic stability in post-devolution UK’ a better arrangement is needed.

Keywords:   adjudication, devolution, Judicial Committee, Privy Council
