House of Lords judgments

10 June 2009

Law Lords rule on four cases - including points of law on use of secret evidence against terrorist suspects whose movements are restricted due to control orders, and holiday pay entitlement after extended absence from work and termination of employment on health grounds

The House of Lords is the UK's highest Court of Appeal. A group of Members called the Law Lords, who are highly qualified judges, make case judgments. They also hear and determine appeals. Their decision is final in civil matters for all UK courts and in England, Wales and Northern Ireland for criminal cases.
