On 3 May it was announced that Mr Justice Warby, the Judge in Charge of the Media and Communications List, would be consulting practitioners and other court users on a small number of procedural questions. The stated intention was to publish the results of the consultation and to consider whether any action is required in the light of the responses and any other relevant considerations.
The consultation period ended on 31st May 2017. The responses have now been analysed, and today’s report (see link below), sets out the main conclusions and next steps. There will be a Users Group meeting in the Autumn, details of which are to follow.
