In the Royal Courts of Justice in London in a court customarily occupied by Her Majesty's Judges sat a collection of prominent men from various walks of life comprising the newly-constituted Restrictive Practices Court. Two of these men were English High Court Judges and one was a member of the Outer House of the Scottish Court of Session, but even they sat informally, without the customary judicial paraphernalia of robes and wigs. With them sat two industrialists, an accountant, and a trade union official. They held unlawful a long-standing arrangement among the manufacturers of proprietary medicines whieh prevented such goods from being sold through any retail outlet other than a pharmacy.
