Suggestions that the whole thing could be put back, LSLA president say

Francesca Kaye, president of the London Solicitors Litigation Association, has warned that silence from the government over implementation of the Jackson reforms is leading to rumours that all or part of them could be delayed.

“The silence is just terrible,” Kaye said. “We never know if someone is just telling us a rumour or if it has some basis in fact. I’ve even heard rumours that the whole thing could be put back.”

Just before Christmas, the MoJ announced that justice secretary Chris Grayling was reconsidering the timetable for extension of the RTA claims portal. An announcement of the new date has yet to be made.
