According to the Practice Statement (Judicial Precedent) [1966] 1 WLR 1234, the House of Lords (now the Supreme Court) is generally bound by its own previous decisions but may depart from them when it appears right to do so. This flexibility allows the court to adapt to changing social and legal norms.
