HL Deb 28 July 1890 vol 347 c1015

Amendments reported (according to order).


I have to propose an Amendment at the end of the 1st clause, which transfers the hearing of Motions for new trials from the Divisional Court to the Court of Appeal. My attention has been called to the fact that when this Bill comes into operation there will be a certain number of cases standing for hearing in the Divisional Court, and that those ought to be transferred for hearing to the Court of Appeal. The Master of the Rolls has called my attention to that circumstance, and I think it is desirable it should be provided for. Therefore, I propose to add— This section shall extend to every Motion of which notice may have been given, whether before or after the passing of this Act, but which has not been heard before the commencement of this Act.

Amendment agreed to,

Other Amendments made; Bill to be read 3ª to-morrow; and to be printed as amended. (No. 231.)
