Court of Referees

The Court of Referees is charged with considering the rights of a petitioner to make a challenge against a Private Bill.

Private Bills are usually promoted by organisations, like local authorities or private companies, to give themselves powers beyond, or in conflict with, the general law. Private Bills only change the law as it applies to specific individuals or organisations, rather than the general public.
