LEGAL AID ACT 1978 - SECT 52

Transitional provisions: Legal Aid (Amendment) Act 1998

    (1)     Section 30 of this Act as in force immediately before the commencement of Part 4 of the Legal Aid (Amendment) Act 1998 continues to apply to—

        (a)     the taking of any action or the making of any decision by VLA under that section; and

        (b)     the hearing and determination of any matters by an independent reviewer under that section; and

        (c)     any application to the Supreme Court under section 30(18)

which had begun before that commencement.

    (2)     Despite the substitution of section 30(18) of this Act by section 8 of the Legal Aid (Amendment) Act 1998 , an application may be made to the Supreme Court under that subsection as in force immediately before the commencement of section 8 of that Act for an order setting aside an exclusion or removal that occurred—

        (a)     before the commencement of Part 4 of that Act; or

        (b)     after the commencement of Part 4 of that Act but to which section 30 as in force immediately before that commencement continues to apply by virtue of subsection (1)—

and that application may be dealt with and determined as if section 30(18) of this Act had not been so substituted.
