6 Pump Court

At this week’s ground-breaking sitting of the Supreme Court in Manchester, three members of Six Pump Court Chambers appeared in the first case to be listed. A seven-Justice bench heard the two-day appeal in The Manchester Ship Canal Company Ltd v United Utilities Water Ltd, in which Charles Morgan and Nicholas Ostrowski were instructed on behalf of The Manchester Ship Canal Company Ltd and Stephen Hockman KC appeared on behalf of the Environmental Law Foundation as intervener. The case is one of The Lawyer’s “Top 10 Appeals of 2023” and raises topical issues of fundamental importance in relation to the operation of the sewerage system in England and Wales and the liability of undertakers for polluting discharges.
