R (Edwards) v Environment Agency; [2008] WLR (D) 119

“When copies of draft speeches which the Law Lords proposed to deliver were provided in confidence, prior to the delivery of judgment, to the legal representatives of the parties to an appeal which had been heard, the purpose was to obtain help in correcting misprints, inadvertent errors of fact or ambiguities of expression. It was not intended to enable the case to be reargued, and any attempt to do so amounted to an abuse of the procedure of the House of Lords.”
