Chapter 3 Part 3 Division 2 Section 130A
130A   Pre-trial orders and orders made during trial bind trial Judge
(1)  A pre-trial order made by a Judge in proceedings on indictment is binding on the trial Judge in those proceedings unless, in the opinion of the trial Judge, it would not be in the interests of justice for the order to be binding.
(2)  If, on an appeal against a conviction for an offence in proceedings on indictment, a new trial is ordered, a pre-trial order made by a Judge, or an order made by the trial Judge, in relation to the proceedings from which the conviction arose is binding on the trial Judge hearing the fresh trial proceedings unless—
(a)  in the opinion of the trial Judge hearing the fresh trial proceedings, it would not be in the interests of justice for that order to be binding, or
(b)  that order is inconsistent with an order made on appeal.
(3)  If proceedings on indictment before a trial Judge are discontinued for any reason, a pre-trial order made by a Judge, or an order made by the trial Judge, in relation to those proceedings is binding on a trial Judge hearing any subsequent trial proceedings relating to the same offence as the discontinued proceedings unless, in the opinion of the trial Judge hearing the subsequent trial proceedings, it would not be in the interests of justice for the order to be binding.
(4)  In this section, pre-trial order means any order made or given after the indictment is first presented but before the empanelment of a jury for a trial.
(5)  To avoid doubt, this section extends to a ruling given on the admissibility of evidence.
