Contempt of court Committal. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the claimant had required permission to appeal an order made in committal proceedings since the sanction had been the imposition of a fine rather than imprisonment. Further, the court, allowing the appeal in part, held that findings of breach of a court order would be set aside on the ground of irregularities in the committal application.
