Disclosure of small shareholdings

Disclosure of small shareholdings

Several members of the Supreme Court will hold shares in a number of publicly quoted companies. Justices will not regard a small shareholding in any such company involved in a case as a matter for recusal or disclosure. A Justice with a large shareholding will draw this specifically to the parties' attention. In addition Justices will not normally think it necessary to declare that they are council taxpayers in a local authority which is a party to a case, or is likely to be affected by the outcome. Any party who wishes to have specific confirmation of the position regarding any such shareholding(s) or council tax liabilities in any particular case should contact the Registry.
