Agreed minutes 17 June 2016

Costs budgeting

Following the publication of the new Precedent H in April 2016, a number of queries had been raised. District Judge Lethem undertook detailed work to consider those and concluded that they were all technical rather than any principles of substance. Consequently there are no amendments to Precedent H for consideration by the CPR Committee.

Note: there are due to be minor amendments, see Practice Note: Further revisions to Precedent H on the way.

Allocation questionnaires

District Judge Hovington noted that in court the old Form N149—Allocation questionnaire is still being used. It was confirmed by the CPR Committee that there was an awareness of this issue and that the new form is waiting to be uploaded at the Ministry of Justice—upload of forms is done in tranches.

Note: All Lexis®Smart forms, including the N149 forms, available in Lexis®PSL
