Section 710: Appeals from High Court or Court of Session
2112.This section is concerned with appeals from the High Court and the Court of Session. It is based on section 705A(8), (9) and (12) of ICTA.
2113.This section refers to “the Supreme Court” rather than “the House of Lords”. This anticipates the substitutions to be made by paragraph 47 of Schedule 9 to the Constitutional Reform Act 2005. This Act includes a transitional amendment substituting “the House of Lords” for “the Supreme Court” for the period before the paragraph 47 amendments come into force.
