8th Edition Supplement, November 2022
Bennion, Bailey and Norbury on Statutory Interpretation is the leading work of its kind. It provides a clear and comprehensive guide to understanding, interpreting and applying legislation. Regularly used by practitioners and academics, and frequently cited in judgments throughout the common law world, it is a trusted and authoritative resource.
Building on the work begun in the previous edition to improve accessibility and enhance the content, this eighth edition includes a comprehensive account of recent developments, including enhanced coverage of EU-related law in light of Brexit.
There is also new content on devolved legislation, contributed by subject specialists Michael Anderson (Parliamentary Counsel, Drafting Team Leader, Scottish Government), and James George (Cwnsler Deddfwriaethol, Llywodraeth Cymru [Legislative Counsel, Welsh Government]). The entire text has been revised to include devolution issues throughout.
