Rule 44 Time limit variation: procedure etc. MS
44(1)This rule applies only where an application for variation of time limit is made under rule 43.S
(2)Such a variation may be made only if the court is satisfied—
(a)that no arbitral process for varying the time limit is available, and
(b)that someone would suffer a substantial injustice if no variation was made.
(3)It is for the court to determine the extent of any variation.
(4)The tribunal may continue with the arbitration pending determination of an application.
(5)The court's decision on whether to make a variation (and, if so, on the extent of the variation) is final.
