Words and legislation

Given my spray about a pointless circular definition in a recent Bill, I was interested to note the comments of the Chief Justice of the High Court about the excessive leeway given to the courts to define words like "good faith". In the case in point effectively it is left to the court to define broadband.

Note: My earlier comment was wrong the newly defined term is used in the Bill, but ot in such a way that a definition was required.
