In the same footnote, the court went on to say that '[s]ection 168(3)(a) of the Constitution now reads: "The Supreme Court of Appeal may decide appeals in any matters arising from the High Court of South Africa or a court of a status similar to the High Court of South Africa, except in respect of labour or competition matters to such extent as may be determined by an Act of Parliament"'.
