Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2017 — Motion to Regret — 13 Sep 2017 at 19:45

Lord Prescott voted with the majority (Content).

The motion supported by the majority of members of the House of Lords taking part in the vote was:

"That this House regrets that the Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2017 have been laid with insufficient regard to the overwhelmingly negative response to the proposed Rules during the consultation and to the lack of evidence that significant numbers of unmeritorious environmental claims are currently brought; that they may escalate claimants’ legal costs and act against the intention of the Aarhus Convention that the cost of environmental litigation should not be prohibitive; and that they are likely to have the effect of deterring claimants from bringing meritorious environmental cases (SI 2017/95 (L. 1))."
