In EDO Corp v Ultra Electronics Ltd 1.4.09, the Chancery Court held that s 33(2) the Supreme Court Act 1981 did not confer jurisdiction on the court to make an order for pre-action disclosure in aid of the arbitral process where an applicant did not appear likely to be a party to legal proceedings in the High Court. It held that, had it been the intention of the legislature to grant similar ancillary assistance to that provided by s.33(2) to those who were likely to be parties to arbitral proceedings, it would have made express provision to that effect.
