Achow, Ann,

Dear Mr [removed for privacy reasons],

Thank you for your enquiry of 31 March.

It is not clear from your request whether you are asking for the release
of information which we may hold on this topic or whether you are
seeking a legal opinion.

I am unable to provide the information which you request under the
Freedom of Information Act as we do not hold it. The Freedom of
Information Act requires public authorities to release recorded
information that it holds, subject to the exemptions outlined in the
Act, but it does not require authorities to produce new information to
reply to a request nor to provide opinion unless that opinion is
contained within its existing records.

The Supreme Court's function is as the final court of appeal. The Court
hears appeals on arguable points of law of the greatest public
importance, for the whole of the United Kingdom in civil cases, and for
England, Wales and Northern Ireland in criminal cases. Additionally, it
hears cases on devolution matters under the Scotland Act 1998, the
Northern Ireland Act 1988 and the Government of Wales Act 2006. Cases
are referred to it through the appeal process, it does not request that
particular cases are forwarded to it for consideration nor does it have
the jurisdiction to bring criminal proceedings.

Information about the case you mention including the judgment is
available on the judiciary website at www.judiciary.gov.uk That website
also contains information about the routes of appeal for all cases heard
by the courts in England and Wales

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.

In regards to question (a) Am I to take that the Supreme Court has no written guidelines or lawful acts recorded that allow for a subordinate court to override International and European human rights legislation ?

Yours faithfully.

Mr..[removed for privacy reasons]

Achow, Ann,

Dear Mr [removed for privacy reasons]

In response to your follow up enquiry, the Court's records relate to
specific cases which have come to the Court on appeal. It would be
unlikely that they would hold the information "written guidelines or
lawful acts recorded that allow for a subordinate court to override
International and European human rights legislation" that you request.
In the event that we did hold it within the records of the court it
would be exempt from release under section 32 of the Freedom of
Information Act with the exception of the information which is covered
by our publication scheme, for example the Court's judgments, which are
available on our website at www.supremecourt.gov.uk or on request. I
can confirm that this information is not held within our administrative
records.

We do hold reference material about many aspects of UK, European and
international law in our library and the information you refer to may
be contained within the library material as it includes printed
publications such as legal journals, textbooks, law reports and
legislation. The library is for the use of the Justices and staff of
the Supreme Court - we do not provide a library facility for the
public. The library's reference information is exempt from release under
Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act as it is published
information which is available by other means. The Freedom of
Information Act does not provide an alternative means of access to
information which is already freely available, either through commercial
publishing operations or through existing publicly funded provision.

For information about Acts and statutes you may wish to access the
following websites:
www.opsi.gov.uk/acts
www.statutelaw.gov.uk
www.parliament.uk

Printed information explaining the law can be found by using the
websites of legal bookshops for example www.wildy.com or
www.hammickslegal.co.uk/shop to name just two. You should be able to
access books through your local library or through the Inter library
Loan Service. Commercial legal databases such as 'Westlaw' and
'LexisNexis' contain information on case law although you have to
subscribe to these as access is not
free of charge. There is also a free access website www.bailii.org run
by the British and Irish Legal Information Institute which may be of use
to you as it contains case law. From the home page you can click on
'Case Law Search' where there is an advance search facility where you
can enter keywords.

May I suggest again that you refer your enquiry to the Ministry of
Justice or Her Majesty's Court Service who may be able to help you.

Yours sincerely,

Ann Achow (Mrs)

Achow, Ann,

Dear Mr [removed for privacy reasons]

Thank you for your request dated 8 April 2010 which asks whether the
Supreme Court has records of Magna Carta clause 29 and of the 3rd and
4th Geneva Conventions. It is not clear whether you are asking if the
Court holds or has access to copies of these documents and/or published
reference material concerning these matters or whether the Court holds
specific information concerning these matters in its records.

If you are asking whether the Court holds copies of these documents I
can advise you that we do hold copies of legislation and reference
material about many aspects of UK, European and international law in
our library. Therefore, the information you refer to may be contained
within the library material as it includes printed publications such as
legal journals, textbooks, law reports and legislation. If it is not
held physically in the library the Court would have access to it, should
it require it, through the various online legislation databases and
other materials to which we subscribe. The library's reference
information is exempt from release under Section 21 of the Freedom of
Information Act as it is published information which is available by
other means. The Freedom of Information Act does not provide an
alternative means of access to information which is already freely
available, either through commercial publishing operations or through
existing publicly funded provision.

If you are asking whether information about these matters is contained
within the records of the Court I can advise you that if it were
contained within the records of the court it would be exempt from
release under section 32 of the Freedom of Information Act with the
exception of the information which is covered by our publication scheme,
for example the Court's judgments, which are available on our website
at www.supremecourt.gov.uk or on request. I can confirm that this
information is not held within our administrative records.

The second part of your enquiry asks whether it can be confirmed that
the Court has a recorded ethos of abiding by the Magna Carta and Geneva
Conventions which you mention. We do not hold this information but in
the event that we did and that it was held within the records of the
Court it would be exempt from release under section 32 as detailed
above.

You may wish to know that the Justices of the Supreme Court are required
to take the Judicial Oath on appointment, as are all other members of
the judiciary. The wording of the oath is as follows:

"I, _________ , do swear by Almighty God that I will well and truly
serve our Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth the Second in the office of
________ , and I will do right to all manner of people after the laws
and usages of this realm, without fear or favour, affection or ill will.
"

We hold a written record that each of the Justices has taken this
oath. We do not hold a separate record of the Court abiding by specific
legislation because the Judicial Oath covers all of the laws of the
realm.

More information about the judiciary can be obtained on the Judicial
website at http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/index.htm

As part of our obligations under the FOIA, we have an independent review
process. If you are dissatisfied with this decision, you may write to
request an internal review. The internal review will be carried out by
