For further information on previous and/or subsequent amendments to the CPR, see: CPR Updates—overview and Civil procedure rule committee minutes—overview.

Costs budgeting

Even before the amended CPR 3.12 provisions come into force on 22 April 2014, concerns were raised over the interpretation to be applied to the new provisions. On 11 April 2014, the CPR Committee issued clarification. The short point being that the exemption in CPR 3.12 will apply to the Admiralty and Commercial Court. For an explanation of why see:

The Civil Procedure (Amendment No 5) Rules 2014 will come into force on 5 June, which will formalise this clarification. As yet, we do not have an SI number for these rules. A draft has been made available. The relevant provision, so far as the clarification is concerned, is para 6, which provides for the deletion of wording in Civil Procedure (Amendment No. 4) Rules 2014 (SI 2014/867) so that rule 25(1) would read as set out below
