Following on from our note on the refusal of permission by the Supreme Court for Weaver v L&Q, we have now seen a copy of the Order. Lords Hope and Brown and Lady Hale refused permission to appeal on the ground that
“the application did not raise an arguable point of law of general public importance which ought to be considered by the Supreme Court at this time.”
Now, where to put the emphasis in that sentence? For me, I’d have thought that the ‘general public importance’ was a given, so the weight is on no ‘arguable point of law’.
