YOU CAN’T GET HIM, HE’S PART OF THE UNION


The BBC reports that the House of Lords has rejected the Government’s proposal to abolish the position of Lord Chancellor. The IPKat notes that this means that the position of Lord Chancellor’s Appointed Person (LCAP), who hears appeals from the Patent Office in trade mark matters, is safe for the meantime. The Government still has to decide whether it will go ahead with its dastardly plan, despite the Lords’ objections. Does anyone out there know what is planned for the LCAP if the Government does eventually manage to dispose of the Lord Chancellor?
