Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order brings the District Courts Amendment Act 2002 into force on 24 November 2003. The District Courts Amendment Act 2002 replaces the provisions that govern appeals in civil cases from District Courts to the High Court. The main effect of the new provisions is that the detailed procedural requirements for appeals are no longer set out in the District Courts Act 1947, but are instead governed by the High Court Rules.
