The interpretation of statutes
The literal rule of statutory interpretation seeks to ascertain the intention of Parliament from the meaning of the ________ used in a statute.
 AC 635, Lord Reid declared that the words of a statutory provision were only to be given a meaning that they could reasonably bear; in the event of a word being _____________, a court could choose between meanings.
The courts have little flexibility or choice in applying the rules of interpretation. They must always apply one rule and not contemplate or consider the use of other rules.
