BRADLAUGH V GOSSETT PDF

The legal question which this statement of the case appears to me to raise for our decision is this. Suppose that the House of Commons forbids one of its members to do that which an Act of Parliament requires him to do, and in order to enforce its prohibition directs its executive officer to exclude him from the House, by force if necessary is such an order one which we can declare to be void and restrain the executive officer of the House from carrying out? In my opinion, we have no such power. I think that the House of Commons is not subject to the control of Her Majesty's courts in its administration of that part of the statute law which has relation to its own internal proceedings, and that the use of such actual force as may be necessary to carry into effect such a resolution as the one before us is justifiable The Parliamentary Oaths Act prescribes the course of proceeding to be followed on the occasion of the election of a Member of Parliament. In order to raise the question now before us, it is necessary to assume that the House of Commons has come to a resolution inconsistent with the Act; for if the resolution and the Act are not inconsistent, the plaintiff has obviously no grievance.

Bradlaugh v Gosset (1884) 12 QBD 271

It was the importance of this case as to the issues which it raised, and the great dignity of the House of Commons, whose action is in fact questioned in the person of the Serjeant-at-Arms, rather than any difficulty in the legal questions involved, which led me to desire that the judgments pronounced on it should be deliberate. The same reasons lead me to think it fit to express my own judgment separately, though, after reading the judgment of my learned Brother, I feel that the subject is exhausted. The facts and the pleadings which state them have been so fully detailed by my Brother Stephen that I content myself with referring to and adopting as my own that portion of his judgment which details them. These statements raise the question whether, on the assumption that the resolution of the House of Commons forbade a member of the House within the walls of the House itself to do something which by the law of the land he had a right to do, such a resolution is one which the House of Commons has a right to pass; and whether, if it has not, this Court can inquire into the right, and allow an action to be maintained by a member of the House against the officer of the House charged by resolution of the House itself with the execution of its order. The plaintiff argued his own case, and argued it with abundant learning and ability; but he admitted that, with all his research, he had not found a single precedent for his action, and that he had found many distinct and weighty dicta of great judges in former days to the effect that no such action could be maintained. Nor, wide as is the range of topics more or less connected with the point at issue, and numerous as are the authorities collected and commented on in the leading cases on the subject, does it seem to me that the questions really to be decided are more than elementary, and such as must be decided mainly on principle.
