New Clause 21

– in a Public Bill Committee at 1:45 pm on 26th February 2009.

Alert me about debates like this

Issue of warrant of arrest

‘(1) This section applies in relation to an injunction under this Part.

(2) If the person who applied for the injunction considers that the respondent is in breach of any of its provisions, the person may apply to a relevant judge for the issue of a warrant for the arrest of the respondent.

(3) A relevant judge may not issue a warrant on an application under subsection (2) unless the judge has reasonable grounds for believing that the respondent is in breach of any provision of the injunction.

(4) If a person is brought before a court by virtue of a warrant under subsection (3), but the matter is not disposed of, the court may remand the person.’.—(Mr. Campbell.)

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
