Quick Reference

N.

Formerly, an offence more serious than a misdemeanour. Since 1967 the term has been abandoned (although it is retained in pre-1967 statutes that are still in force) and the law formerly relating to misdemeanours now applies to felonies. See also arrestable offence; indictable offence; summary offence.
