The appellant appealed to the House of Lords. Decision The House of Lords held by a majority, dismissing the appeal, that the appellant had correctly been held to be in contempt of court. Per Lord Scarman (dissenting): A balance has to be struck between two interests of the law; on the one hand, the protection of a litigant’s private right to keep his documents to himself notwithstanding his duty to disclose them to the other side in the litigation, and, on the other, the protection of the right, which the law recognises, subject to certain exceptions, as the right of everyone, to speak freely, and to impart information and ideas, upon matters of public knowledge.

3 Can the courts refer to debates in Parliament as an aid to the construction of legislation? Beswick v Beswick (1967) HL: Reasons why a court should not use the record of debates for this purpose Facts The respondent argued that s 56(1) of the Law of Property Act 1925 allowed her to sue in her personal capacity on a contract to which she was not party. The House of Lords held that the contention was incorrect (though the respondent was permitted to maintain an action as administratrix of her late husband’s estate).

Per Lord Scarman: There are two good reasons why the courts should refuse to have regard to what is said in Parliament or by ministers as aids to the interpretation of a statute. First, such material is an unreliable guide to the meaning of what is enacted. It promotes confusion, not clarity. The cut and thrust of debate and the pressures of executive responsibility, essential features of open and responsible government, are not always conducive to a clear and unbiased explanation of the meaning of statutory language.
