Abstract

This article will review the law in the area, analysing the impact of European and International jurisprudence thereon. Although England is the principal focus of this article, comparisons with other jursidictions (primarily in the UK) facilitate a critical appraisal of the salient laws. The limitations on the exercise of the defence which had occurred to date will be considered before an analysis of the mounting national and international pressure. Factoes indicated as influencing policy in the UK will be considered before conclusions are drawn.
