(2) This Act is not intended to limit a discretion a court has--
(a) to admit or exclude evidence in any proceeding, or
(b) to stay criminal proceedings in the interests of justice.
(3) For the avoidance of doubt, it is intended that a warrant may be issued, or an emergency authorisation given, in this jurisdiction under this Act for the installation, use, maintenance or retrieval of a surveillance device in this jurisdiction or a participating jurisdiction, or both.
