Verrall v Great Yarmouth BC [1980]

Verrall v Great Yarmouth Borough Council [1980]


  • Verrall, on behalf of National Front (a far-right-wing political party) had been granted a licence by a Conservative (right-wing) council to hold their national conference in a local hall
  • The council became a Labour (left-wing) council, who then purported to revoke the licence


  • Could the licence be revoked?


  • No


  • There is no reason why specific performance of a short term licence should not be granted to uphold contractual dealings
  • It is a court’s duty to protect ‘interests’ in land, including licences
