28 January 2015

A diverse set of articles for this month.

Firstly, Anja Beriro considers the recent European Court of Justice judgement in an Italian procurement case that includes some very useful guidance on what to consider when looking at Part B contracts, cross-border interest and the application of the 2004 Directive. Lynne Rathbone looks at the latest developments in the ongoing fiscal devolution debate. Sarah Hooton examines the impact of recent developments in employment case law on pay and overtime. We finish off by taking a dip in the pool with Neil Walker and the second instalment in a series of articles focusing on local authorities and land collaboration/joint ventures.
