§ 61. Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that the length of time allowed on appeal from the Supreme Court of Seychelles to the Court of Appeal in Mauritius is only five days; and whether he will extend the time for appeal to two weeks at least.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
Five days are allowed for filing appeals on civil matters; on 165W criminal matters the limit is 10 days for appeals from the assize court, and three days for appeals from the Supreme Court when not sitting as an assize court.
No difficulty has been experienced so far but I am having the position watched.
