Wood v Holden (HMIT) [2006] EWCA Civ 26

In seeking to determine where central management and control of a company incorporated outside the UK lay, it was essential to recognise the distinction between cases where management and control of the company was exercised through its own constitutional organs (the board of directors or the general meeting) and cases where the functions of those constitutional organs had been usurped in the sense that management and control was exercised independently of, or without regard to, those constitutional organs.

First Secretary of State v Robert Simmons [2005] EWCA Civ 1295

The secretary of state was entitled to conclude on the evidence that "very special circumstances" that would have justified inappropriate development in a green belt land had not been established. Accordingly, he had been entitled to uphold an enforcement notice issued by the local authority requiring the respondent to discontinue use of the green belt land as a private gypsy caravan site.
