Abstract:

This book seeks to set the Contempt of Court Act 1981 clearly in its historical context. The statute makes no claim to be a complete code. It amends existing law in some respects and otherwise leaves it untouched. This has always been the way. The law of contempt has developed piecemeal over the years, often with scant regard to general principles. "Arlidge and Eady" attempts to reduce the law governing this special jurisdiction to basic principles, consonant with the common law and with the modern statutes. Where, as so often, neither statute nor precedent provides a clear answer, the authors seek to suggest one. The 1981 Act applies (in some respects differently) to the whole of the United Kingdom. For this reason Herbert Karrigan, a practising advocate with experience of modern Scottish procedure and a direct involvement with the law of contempt, has acted as Consulting Editor. There is a separate chapter devoted to the impact of the statute on the law of Scotland and Northern Ireland. Here again, in relation to Scotland an attempt has been made to set the statute in its historical context. Account is also taken of the European Convention on Human Rights and its likely effet on the development of the contempt jurisdiction.
