Report No. 95

3.26. Expounding of vague generalities.-

Sam Ervin Jr. emphasised the role of the Court as expounding the "vague generalities" of the constitution, in these words:-

"Hundreds, thousands of cases are required to give the phrase a growing content, but the constitution sets the tone. If it were to be specific, it could not be a Constitution nor hope to maintain a theory and framework of government with general powers and limitations."1
