The Judicial House of Lords 1876–2009

Arthur Marriott

Oxford University Press

Although the House of Lords has confirmed that the right of access to justice is a fundamental feature of English common law, it has done relatively little to make that right into a meaningful reality. In particular it has not addressed the issues of the expense involved in taking an appeal to the Lords and the time required for the appeal process to run its course. The first section of this chapter gives one solicitor's perspective on the cost dimensions of the problem. The second section presents a barrister's view of the way the House has, rather idiosyncratically at times, gone about its business.
