This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order brings into force, on 7 August 2006, sections 5 and 6 of the Judicature Amendment Act 2006.
These sections repeal section 58(2) and amend section 59 of the Judicature Act 1908. Section 58(2) currently provides that any 2 Judges of the Court of Appeal may deliver the judgment of the Court. This has been interpreted as requiring all Court of Appeal judgments to be delivered in open Court. The repeal of this provision and the amendment to section 59 mean that judgments of the Court many now be given in the manner prescribed by rules made under section 51C of the Judicature Act 1908.
