The Presidential Practice Direction on Issuing Claims has been published. It applies to England and Wales only.
It sets out the methods of issuing claims from Monday, 29th July, namely:-
- online (the preferred method)
- by post to the Leicester processing centre
- by hand to any of the following tribunal offices (but not other tribunals, and only between 9am and 4pm Mon-Fri): all four London tribunals, Birmingham, Huntingdon, Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester, Bristol, Cardiff.
Presumably there will be a similar Practice Direction for Scotland, but I haven't seen it yet.
