Section 64: Meaning of “appropriate judicial authority”

181.This section provides a definition for “appropriate judicial authority” to whom applications under section 59 can be made. In most cases it will be a Judge of the Crown Court, but where the power being challenged is the Companies Act 1985 or the Competition Act 1998, or section 50 or 51 exercised in reliance on those powers, the “appropriate judicial authority” is the High Court.
