The UK Supreme Court is refusing to hear a case aimed at forcing Northern Ireland’s Secretary of State to set the criteria for a border poll.

Victims’ campaigner Raymond McCord was seeking to argue that more transparency needs to be brought to the process behind the calling of a referendum. His claim was previously rejected by a High Court judge who said there was no legal obligation to have a defined criteria in place.
