I beg to move amendment No. 299, in page 62, line 30, leave out from beginning to 'and' in line 35 and insert—

'(a) after sub-paragraph (a) insert—

''(ab) any party may appeal on a question of law to a judge (not being a deputy judge) against any order, decision or determination;'',

(b) in sub-paragraph (b), for the words from ''by the High Court'', onwards substitute ''by the Court of Appeal, state for the determination of the Court of Appeal any question of law arising out of an award made by the district judge in dealing with the claim unless an appeal on the question has been brought under sub-paragraph (ab);'','.
