Regina v Tagg: CACD 14 Jun 2001

The idea of what was ‘drunkenness’ was sufficiently clear, and not capable of being challenged under the Human Rights Act. The order which made it a criminal offence to be drunk on board an aircraft were not ultra vires, since the Act gave power to regulate for safety and that was the intention of the order.
