(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Civil Proceedings Fees Order 2008 (S.I. 2008/1053).

The Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2013 (S.I. 2013/262) provide that, in cases where a defence is filed on or after 1st April 2013, allocation questionnaires will be replaced by directions questionnaires.
