  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the copyright notice/contents page and you will see a "continue" button. Click on it and your browser will take you to the first of a series of files that contain the text of the Arbitration Act 1996.
  6. Repeat the steps:
    • "File" then "Save as"
    • Scroll down to the continue button and click on it.
