The CPR Committee is currently undertaking a review of pre-action protocols. The review takes place as a consequence of the recommendations in Lord Justice Jackson’s Final Report 2010 on Review of Civil Litigation costs. As part of this process, the Pre-action Protocol for Judicial Review which came into force in March 2002 is being reviewed.
A consultation on the Pre-action protocol for Judicial Review has been published today. Open for only a short time, it closes on 7 November 2014, the consultation can be accessed here.
Responses should be received no later than 12:00 noon on Friday 7 November and should be sent to Jane Wright, Post Point 4.32, Ministry of Justice, 102 Petty France London SW1H 9AJ, or by email. Please include “Judicial Review PAP Consultation” in the subject line of your email.
In addition to the CPR Committee consultation in this area, there is a Home Office consultation entitled Informal consultation on introducing a proforma template for an asylum, nationality and immigration Pre Action Protocol letter which focusses on immigration and asylum cases. The deadline for this consultation has been extended to coincide with the CPR Committee consultation allowing practitioners and others to comment on both.
If you wish to make comments on the Home Office consultation, responses should be sent by 12 noon on 7 November 2014 by email. In your response, please refer to the number of the question you are answering.
The CPRC invites written responses on the detail of the Pre-Action Protocol for Judicial Review.
Note: The CPR Committee is taking the opportunity during the review to include common sections where appropriate in the protocols. In addition to an overhaul of the existing pre-action protocols the CPR Committee is looking at introducing new protocols eg for debt actions.
