You have chosen the incorrect answer.

Next >

In Young v Bristol Aeroplane Co Ltd, it was established that the Court of Appeal is generally bound by its own decisions unless: (i) there are two or more conflicting Court of Appeal decisions and the court must choose between them; (ii) a decision conflicts with a House of Lords or Supreme Court decision; or (iii) a decision was made per incuriam (through lack of care). While the Court of Appeal in criminal cases may consider the liberty of the defendant (R v Gould), this is not one of the original exceptions from Bristol Aeroplane.


Key Point: This question focuses on the exceptions to the doctrine of precedent for the Court of Appeal, particularly as established in Young v Bristol Aeroplane Co Ltd.
