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?

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
