The CCUA has previously expressed grave concerns regarding the draft Pre-Action Protocol for debt recovery, as circulated for consultation in September last year. Our Chair, Jeremy Chaplin, has personally spent a considerable amount of time attempting to resolve the situation. Following this, we are very pleased with subsequent developments.
We understand from the minutes of the last meeting of the subcommittee of the Civil Procedure Rule Committee in February 2015 that the intention is now to consider a more simplified protocol, possibly with a two-step process and a clearer response letter.
The CCUA has been invited to attend future meetings of the subcommittee and is committed to working towards a practicable and proportionate outcome which meets the needs of all court users.
