Philip Sales, ‘Legislative Intention, Interpretation, and the Principle of Legality’

ABSTRACT
In this article, use of the notion of legislative intention is defended as a concept appropriate for the context of the exercise of political and legislative agency by Parliament and to protect democratic values, and an account is given of the process of interpretation of legislation by courts and of the location and proper role of the principle of legality within that process.
