HC Deb 15 June 1999 vol 333 c108W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what plans he has to introduce a compensation scheme for litigants whose cases could not proceed because of failure in listing for which the court service is responsible; and if he will make a statement. [86652]

Mr. Vaz

None. When any mistake which is the fault of the Court Service, including an administrative error over listing, leads to loss for a party in a court action, the Court Service will consider making an ex gratia payment, in line with Treasury guidance.
