Constitutional Reform Bill — Clause 1 — The rule of law — 31 Jan 2005 at 18:00
In this section 'the rule of law' means in particular the sovereignty of the Queen in Parliament in making the law and the sovereignty of the Queen's courts in interpreting and applying both that law and the common law.
This change could be interpreted as affirming the priority of British Law over European Law. However, since European Law gains its power in by an act in British Law, it is not obvious what difference this was intended to make.
