Following Wednesday's vote to call a General Election for 8 June 2017, it appears unlikely that the whiplash reforms (contained in the Prisons and Court Bill) and the driverless cars legislation (contained within the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill) will proceed through this parliament.

Having triggered Article 50, the government has followed its self-prescribed timetable and published the Great Repeal Bill white paper; Legislating for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union (PDF).

After a rollercoaster period filled with debate, deliberation and even the intervention of the Supreme Court, the government has today formally commenced the UK’s exit from the EU with the triggering of Article 50.

20 March 2017
The Lord Chancellor’s announcement on 27 February 2017 to reduce the discount rate from 2.5% to minus 0.75% surprised those representing both claimants and defendants. Whilst all parties anticipated it would fall, it was not expected to be a reduction of this magnitude. The intervening period, since the announcement, has seen a flurry of activity with claimants seeking to withdraw Part 36 Offers and defendants accepting them out of time.
15 March 2017
The long awaited judgments in the cases of McBride v UKI and Clayton v EUI were handed down today, delivering the latest blow to the credit hire industry which is still feeling the effects of the seismic judgment in Stevens in February 2015.
