Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of JONES) v CEREDIGION COUNTY COUNCIL (2005)

PUBLISHED July 28, 2005

The refusal of the House of Lords to entertain an appeal on a particular issue from the High Court under the leapfrog procedure in the Administration of Justice Act 1969 s.12 did not preclude an appellant from appealing to the Court of Appeal on that particular issue where the High Court judge had granted the appellant contingent permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal in relation to that issue. The Act should be construed so as to allow for the possibility of a partial grant of leave to appeal to the House of Lords.
