Note. — An Act was passed in 1870 abolishing ar-

and rates and assessments lawfully imposed ; (2)
sums decerned for aliment ; (3) debtors under war-
rants granted in meditatione fugae; (4) Persons
against whom decrees ad factum praestandzim are
pronounced.
By the " Civil Imprisonment (Scotland) Act, 1882,"
the power to imprison for aliment and expenses of
process was restricted to imprisonment for a period
not exceeding sis weeks against debtors who wilfully
fail to pay sums due for aliment, and the expenses
of process for which decree has been granted; but a
new warrant of imprisonment may be issued against
the same person at intervals of not less than six

longer period than six weeks in respect of the rates
