Report No. 144
The matter is of practical importance and of a recurring nature, and is one which affects the very jurisdiction of the Court. It therefore seems desirable that it should be placed beyond doubt, by a suitable amendment. It is suggested that an Explanation should be added in section 11 to provide that the provisions of section 11 shall apply to a consent decree.
2.5. Section 20 and Place of Suing
