Following the outcome of the Civil Justice Council’s (CJC) earlier consultation regarding a Consolidated Pre-Action Protocol, the CJC is now proposing to recommend a General Pre-Action Protocol to be used in those cases, to which the existing or any future subject-specific Pre-Action Protocols do not apply. It is further proposed to amend Practice Direction on Pre-action Protocols and that this should supplement Part 3 of the Civil Procedure Rules. The CJC is making these proposals jointly with Her Majesty’s Courts Service.
