Transcripts Of Court Judgments
That this House notes that there has been a substantial delay before sending the transcript of the judgment of the court of appeal in case reference B4/2011/2952 (which was heard on 2 May 2012 and received an oral judgment at the end of the hearing) to the appellant, who won the case on the basis that the court of first instance had not provided an adequate judgment; recognises the difficulty that arises when transcripts of judgments are not made available in a timely manner; and calls for the Government to consider changing the law so that parties to a case can record oral judgments themselves so that they can produce their own transcripts in a timely manner, which does not place a burden on the public purse.
This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
