Paragraph 2 inserts new rules into Chapter 38 (Reclaiming) and Chapter 40 (Appeals from inferior courts) in respect of the urgent disposal of reclaiming motions and appeals. In cases where the reclaimer or appellant appeals against an interlocutor containing an order under section 11(1) of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 (court orders relating to parental responsibilities etc.), those new rules provide that the reclaimer or appellant must enrol for urgent disposal of the reclaiming motion or appeal.
