BAIL ACT 1977 - SECT 32

Deposit forfeited on failure to attend

Where a deposit of money or other security is made as a condition of bail declared to be forfeited because of the failure of the person released to attend in accordance with his undertaking the deposit becomes forfeited to Her Majesty but the person bailed shall have the same right as a surety has under section 6 of the Crown Proceedings Act 1958 to apply for an order varying or rescinding the forfeiture and for that purpose the provisions of the said section 6 shall, so far as those provisions are applicable and with such modifications as are necessary, apply with respect to forfeited deposits of bail and in particular with the modification that any reference in those provisions to a surety shall be read and construed as a reference to the person bailed.
