The Upper Tribunal has granted an application to extend the timeframe in which an applicant could refer their notice to the Tribunal. Whilst acknowledging that the case was borderline, the Tribunal granted the application due to a close link between the matters complained of in this (concerning UBS) and another notice (concerning Barclays). The two references have been consolidated and the preliminary issues were heard together on 27 October. (Source: Upper Tribunal Extends Ashton Reference Period)
