HC Deb 05 June 1990 vol 173 c386W
Mr. Harry Barnes

To ask the Attorney-General whether he has any plans to review and propose amendments to the operation of Anton Piller orders; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

Clause 3 of the Courts and Legal Services Bill will allow a county court to make any order available in the High Court, subject to prescribed exceptions; but the Lord Chancellor intends to bring forward regulations under this clause in general restricting the power to grant Anton Piller orders to High Court judges.
