In particular, did the High Court have jurisdiction to entertain an application for judicial review brought by Privacy International against a decision by the IPT that computer hacking by GCHQ fell lawfully within its general warrant to undertake such activity? The ears of public law students will surely have pricked up at these words, for of course they bring to mind the case of Anisminic Ltd v Foreign Compensation Commission  UKHL 6, one of the most famous cases in the development of modern British public law.
Anisminic v Foreign Compensation Commission 
In , a piece of subordinate legislation was passed under the Foreign Compensation Act to distribute compensation paid by the Egyptian government to the UK government with respect to British properties it had nationalised. The appellants claimed that they were eligible for compensation under this piece of subordinate legislation, which was determined by a tribunal the respondents in this case set up under the Foreign Compensation Act The tribunal, however, decided that the appellants were not eligible for compensation, because their "successors in title" TEDO did not have the British nationality as required under one of the provisions of the subordinate legislation. There were two important issues on the appeal to the Court of Appeal and later, the House of Lords. The first was straightforward: whether the tribunal had made an error of law in construing the term "successor of title" under the subordinate legislation.
