Regina (GC) v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis; Regina (C) v Same – WLR Daily

Regina (GC) v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis; Regina (C) v Same [2010] WLR (D) 193

“When it was not possible to reconcile a decision of the House of Lords in relation to the proportionality and legitimacy of the indefinite retention on the United Kingdom’s Police National Computer of biometric data obtained in the course of criminal investigations with a subsequent holding by the European Court of Human Rights that the policy was unlawful, the doctrine of precedent and legal certainty demanded that the Divisional Court should follow the decision of the House of Lords, notwithstanding that both the previous government and the newly elected government of the United Kingdom had signalled their intention to amend the relevant legislation.”
