This Order brings into force on 3rd October 2011 the provisions of the Police and Justice Act 2006 (c. 48) (“the 2006 Act”) set out in article 2(1), but only in certain local justice areas (article 2(2)).
Section 45 of the 2006 Act, in so far as it comes into force by virtue of this Order, inserts section 57C of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (c. 37) (“the 1998 Act”), which is amended by section 106 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (c. 25). Section 57C of the 1998 Act concerns the use of live links at preliminary hearings in magistrates’ courts where the accused is at a police station. A live link is a video-link between a court and a police station.
Section 46 of the 2006 Act amends the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (c. 60) to allow police to grant bail subject to a duty to attend at a police station for proceedings in relation to a live link direction.
