Chapter 12
The District Courts

Other District Courts matters

12.22In Issues Paper 29 we referred to the following provisions of the District Courts Act:182

12.23For each, we pointed out issues that had arisen with the provisions. In some instances, we proposed clarification (for example, section 29(1)(b)), and in others we suggested that they should be omitted from a new Courts Act (for example, section 33). No submissions were received on any of these sections, or the District Courts Act generally. We therefore make no further recommendations on the provisions of this Act. The issues referred to in Issues Paper 29 will inevitably be examined during the drafting process if the District Courts Act is to be included in consolidated courts legislation.
