Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)
This Act of Sederunt revokes Chapter 34A of the Rules of the Court of Session (which provides for an offer made by a pursuer to a defender to settle a claim by the pursuer against the defender) and amends the Rules by omitting the Chapter and such Forms in the appendix to the Rules as are applicable in terms of the Chapter. The Chapter is however to continue to have effect, and the forms to be applicable, as respects any such offer made before the Act of Sederunt comes into force.
