UK Supreme Court start-date set

I mentioned last month that the House of Lords closed it doors after 600-odd years, to be replaced by the new UK Supreme Court.

The new Court has announced its first case to be heard on 5 October: Her Majesty's Treasury v A (FC) & Ors (FC), dealing with freezing terrorist-suspects' assets.

And The Times reports that the Court's proceedings will be broadcast on TV — still a novelty in most Commonwealth countries.
