Davis v Johnson

Facts and Judgment
  "While, of course, anyone can look at Hansard, I venture to think that it would be improper for a judge to do so before arriving at his decision and before this case I have never known that done. It cannot be right that a judicial decision should be affected by matter which a judge has seen but to which counsel could not refer and on which counsel had no opportunity to comment." Back to lecture outline on judicial precedent Back to lecture outline on aids to statutory interpretation   Sources of Law
