HC Deb 11 November 1981 vol 12 c87W
43. Mr. Cook

asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland what consultations he held prior to the doubling of the summary jurisdiction limit.

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

The increase in the upper financial limit in the summary cause was effected by an Order in Council, the Sheriff Courts (Scotland) Act 1971 (Summary Cause) Order 1981, S.I. 1981/842. Before this order was made, a draft of it was laid before Parliament and was approved by a resolution of each House.
