Contempt of Court: LMM(80)40

The paper prepared by the Commonwealth Secretariat on the law of contempt of court has given some very useful information. It has given a good idea as to the law as is being followed in many commonwealth countries. Some of the recommendations of the Phillimore Committee, as given in Appendix A of the paper, though made in the background of U.K. conditions, have universal appeal and may usefully be considered by any country which is contemplating enactment of an exhaustive law on contempt.
