Report No. 185

Section 51

This section deals with 'Grounds of opinion, when relevant".

It reads:

"51. Whenever the opinion of any living person is relevant, the grounds on which such opinion is based are also relevant"

There is an illustration below Section 51, which reads as follows:

"An expert may give an account of experiments performed by him for the purpose of forming his opinion."

The 69th Report said the section requires no change. Further, we have already recommended in Section 45A that an expert should submit a copy of his report to the parties and that the report must contain reasons for his opinion.

We agree that no changes are necessary in Section 51.
