There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Criminal Appeal (Northern Ireland) Act 1980. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions. Use the ‘more’ link to open the changes and effects relevant to the provision you are viewing.
This section lists the changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act, associated Parts and Chapters where applicable. This includes any insertions of whole new Parts, Chapters or provisions yet to be inserted into this Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing.
This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
(a)where the application was made by the prosecutor, order the payment by the Secretary of State to the defendant of such sums as appear to the Court or [F1the Supreme Court]F1 reasonably sufficient to compensate the defendant for any expenses properly incurred by him in resisting the application; or
(b)where the application was made by the defendant, order him to pay the whole or any part of the costs of the application.
(2)Where an appeal to [F1the Supreme Court]F1 from the Court under this Part of this Act is determined in favour of the defendant, [F1the Supreme Court]F1 may, if it thinks fit, order the payment by the Secretary of State of such sums as appear to [F1the Supreme Court]F1 reasonably sufficient to compensate the defendant for any expenses properly incurred by him—
(b)in carrying on his defence before the Crown Court, at the preliminary investigation or preliminary enquiry and before any other court before which proceedings for the offence in respect of which he was committed for trial were begun but not concluded.
(3)Where in any proceedings on an appeal or application for leave to appeal to [F1the Supreme Court]F1 under this Part of this Act, an interpreter is required because of a defendant’s lack of English, the expenses properly incurred on his employment shall be defrayed by the Secretary of State up to an amount allowed by [F1the Supreme Court]F1 .
(4)Except as provided by this section, no costs shall be allowed on the hearing or determination of an appeal under this Part of this Act or of any proceedings preliminary or incidental to such an appeal.
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.

This timeline shows the different points in time where a change occurred. The dates will coincide with the earliest date on which the change (e.g an insertion, a repeal or a substitution) that was applied came into force. The first date in the timeline will usually be the earliest date when the provision came into force. In some cases the first date is 01/02/1991 (or for Northern Ireland legislation 01/01/2006). This date is our basedate. No versions before this date are available. For further information see the Editorial Practice Guide and Glossary under Help.
