WHERE HAVE ALL THE CIVIL PROCEDURE RULES GONE? (2): A LONG TIME MAY NOT BE PASSING (AND SOME – MAYBE NOT SO USEFUL – LINKS)
As an update on the decision to move the online version of the Civil Procedure Rules. David Wolfson QC, (Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Justice) tweeted yesterday that the problem had been recognised
“I’ve asked my officials to look at this urgently, because it’s an access to justice issue, and work is already underway. I aim to provide a further update next week. Thanks again to all who have posted helpful suggestions and comments here (we do listen!).”
IN THE MEANTIME (AND MAKING NO PROMISES THAT THESE ARE ACCURATE…)
If you need to navigate the rules on the (wholly inadequate) new site.
- The page here gives access to the specialist court guidance and links to all the rules (I am, however, slightly wary of them being up to date, rules 1 – 20 and 81-89 appear to state that they were last updated on 1st October 2018 – I am unable to verify that these are the updated versions).
- The page here is said to give access to the forms (however all it seems to do is perform that marvellous trick of linking back to itself on the section where it says “forms are available to download”).
TIME WILL TELL
Time will tell whether “listening” leads to action…
