Lord Chief Justice and Master of the Rolls response on behalf of the judiciary

This response, which is submitted by the Lord Chief Justice and the Master of the Rolls on behalf of the Judiciary as a whole, has been prepared with the assistance of judges at every level. It contains a synthesis of views from a variety of judicial perspectives, but has drawn heavily on the experience of those whose day to day professional experience lies in the county courts.

Lord Justice Jackson response

In my response I only address chapters 2 and 3 of the Consultation Paper. A number of the proposals in chapters 2 and 3 follow closely the recommendations in my Final Report on Civil Litigation Costs (“FR”). I therefore welcome those proposals.
