EXPLANATORY NOTE

The Rules regulating appeals from the Court of Appeal of New Zealand to the Privy Council confer a right of appeal from any final judgment where the matter in dispute or claim amounts to £500 sterling. This Order increases that amount to 5,000 New Zealand dollars. It also increases the maximum security that may be required from an appellant for the due prosecution of an appeal, and for any costs that may be awarded against him, from £500 to 2,000 New Zealand dollars.
