Our Acts of Parliament dealing with criminal offending have certain time limits in which charges must be laid (filed) in Court. So you should know the law because a breached time limit may provide you with a defence.
We now provide you with a direct link to the Government legislation site where you can look up Acts of Parliament and Regulations and Rules. An Act is also known as a Statute. A Regulation is also sometimes known as a Rule. This Government legislation site is still going through some teething problems. But you will be able to access all legislation and find specific Acts and Rules and individual sections.
Local & Private Acts
Relatively minor traffic offending, but including drink driving cases, must be laid (filed) within six months of the offence.
Certain drug cases must be laid (filed) within four years.
