Constitutional Reform Bill — Clause 37 — Juristiction of the Supreme Court — 1 Feb 2005 at 15:00
Mr Kenneth Clarke MP, Rushcliffe voted with the majority (No).
(1)The Supreme Court is a superior court of record.
(2) An appeal lies to the Court from any order or judgment of the Court of Appeal in England and Wales in civil proceedings.
(3) An appeal lies to the Court from any order or judgment of a court in Scotland if an appeal lay from that court to the House of Lords at or immediately before the commencement of this section.
The few who voted Aye wanted to change the word "an" in the third paragraph to "no". This would have removed the law in Scotland from the power of the new Supreme Court.
