Parliament is the supreme legislative authority in the United Kingdom1. In practice, this is subject to certain self-imposed limits. Parliament has, for example, delegated certain law-making powers to the devolved assemblies in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland2; and by virtue of the European Communities Act 1972 it determines to resolve inconsistencies between English law and European Union law in favour of the latter3. The courts may make declarations of incompatibility where a provision of legislation is incompatible with a right under the European Convention on Human Rights
