(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. This Order accordingly adds references to directions questionnaires in fee 2.1 in Schedule 1 to the 2008 Order (fee payable where a questionnaire is filed or where the court allocates a case to a track without requiring a questionnaire).
2003 c.39. Section 92 was amended by section 59 of and paragraph 4 of Schedule 11 Part 2 to the Constitutional Reform Act (c.4). Section 108 was amended by section 15(1) and paragraphs 308 and 345 of Schedule 4 Part 1 to the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 (c.4).
