TEMPORARY HALT TO USE OF CLAIMS PORTAL: PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT BY A TWEET… THESE CIVIL PROCEDURE RULES WILL NOT LONGER COME INTO EFFECT ON 2ND JUNE 2022
Practice Direction 51ZB was amended so that it would be compulsory for defendants to use the portal from the 2nd June 2022. However this has been delayed.
“These Civil Procedure Rule changes will no longer come into effect on 2 June 2022. We’ll announce the new date as soon as we can. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”
The tweet is in a chain of tweets which, previously, had advertised the changes and advised upon how to get information about the Practice Direction and signing up for access to the online service.
