Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
The effect of this Order is to enable, as a transitional measure, those persons who exercise the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal by virtue of holding the office of registrar or deputy registrar of civil appeals to continue to exercise the same jurisdiction once the office of registrar of civil appeals is abolished on 27 September 1999 (by section 70 of the Access to Justice Act 1999).
These transitional provisions and savings will be superseded when RSC Order 59 is revoked or amended so as to remove references to the registrar.
