Bankruptcy and Diligence etc. (Scotland) Act 2007

The term “admiralty action”

775.Paragraph 4(a) inserts the term “respondentia” into paragraph (h) of the section 47(2) list. Respondentia is a security granted over the cargo contained in a ship for a loan advanced in consideration of a particular voyage.

776.Paragraph 4(b) inserts new subsection (2A) after the section 47(2) list. This gives the label “admiralty action” to any action (whether in the Court of Session or sheriff court) enforcing a claim in the section 47(2) list.

777.Paragraph 5 provides for two amendments consequential on the creation of the term “admiralty action”.
