|The Summary Jurisdiction Act, 1857 20 & 21 Vict c. 43.||In section six, after the words "seem fit; and" there shall be inserted the words "except as provided by the Administration of Justice Act, 1960".|
§ Section 6 of the Summary Jurisdiction Act, 1857, provides that the decision of the divisional court of the Queen's Bench Division on a case stated by magistrates is to be final. With the introduction of an appeal to the House of Lords under Clause 1 of the Bill, this will no longer be so and the Fourth Schedule accordingly proposes the repeal of the relevant words in Section 6 of the Act of 1857. Following the amendments proposed by the Third Schedule in Section 1 (6) of the Criminal Appeal Act, 1907, it seems more appropriate to provide that the decision of the divisional court should continue to be final except as provided by the present Bill, and this is the effect of the Amendment.
§ Amendment agreed to.
