Section 137: Appeal on a point of law
249.This section establishes the right to appeal to the Court of Appeal or Court of Session on a point of law against a decision of the Tribunal. An appeal may be brought only with the permission of the Tribunal or the appeal court. If the appeal court considers that the decision is wrong in law it may remit the matter back to the Tribunal for a rehearing and decision or make a decision itself. An appeal may be made from the Court of Appeal or Court of Session to the House of Lords with the leave of the Court or the House of Lords. The Lord Chancellor may make procedural rules in relation to the exercise of these appeal rights.
