Jan 21, 2019, 03:00 PM

Last year the High Court ruled out claims against the British Government brought by people caught up in the Mau Mau emergency in Kenya in the 1950s.

Guy Mansfield QC represented the Foreign Office in this litigation and discusses the importance of the Limitation Act with Rosalind English.
