||Court of Appeal, Civil Division
Laws and Jonathan Parker LJJ
||Richard Morgan (instructed by Stephenson Harwood) for the claimant.
||Simon Browne-Wilkinson QC (instructed by Michael Segen & Co) for D.
||23 January 2002
Contempt of court - Committal - Appeal against committal - Judge making order contemnor pay claimant's costs on indemnity basis - Whether appeal as of right against order - Whether order committal order - Administration of Justice Act 1999, s 54 - s 13 - CPR 52.3.
Having regard to the specific exceptions in CPR52.3 to the requirement for permission to appeal, the natural meaning of 'committal order' in CPR52.3(1)(a) was an order committing a person to prison. It followed that a costs order made in proceedings for contempt of court was not a committal order, and thus that permission was required to appeal such an order.
