    Hi,
    I have been reading up on the 1971 Blackburn vs Attourney General case and in it Mr Blackburn brought an action against the government to say they couldn't surrender parliament of it's right to make laws by entering the common market. In the book I'm reading, understanding law, it asks had the court decided Mr Blackburn was lacking of locus standi then who would have it? Thank you.

    The law has moved on since that decision. If the case came before the courts today, the result would be the same but it wouldn't be decided on the basis that Blackburn lacked standing but on the basis that the Crown's power to enter into treaties was non-justiceable.
