HC Deb 24 February 1994 vol 238 c307W
Mr. Channon

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what progress is being made on proposals to allow interest to be paid on county court judgments for sums(a) above £5,000 and (b) below £5,000.

Mr. John M. Taylor

That part of section 74 of the County Courts Act 1984 which deals with interest on county court judgments of £5,000 and over was implemented on 1 July 1991. Since that date it has been possible to claim interest on a county court judgment for £5,000 and over. Following consultation last year on extending the provision to judgments below £5,000, no workable proposals were identified which would not place undue burdens or costs on creditors and the courts. The matter is still under review.
