Commissions for Examination of Prisoners

Commissions for examination of prisoners beyond limits of appellate jurisdiction of High Court Division.
45. Where it appears to High Court Division that the evidence of a person confined in a prison beyond the local limits of its appellate jurisdiction is material in any civil matter pending before it or before any Court subordinate to it, the High Court Division may, if it thinks fit, issue a commission, under the provisions of the 1[Code of Civil Procedure, 1908,] for the examination of the person in the prison in which he is confined.
