Reply To: VTS URGENT -Change to evidence disclosure process with effect from 1 April 2024


Only thing I am unhappy with are the timelines of submitting BUT, after speaking to VT, this can be extended for reasonable reasons.

I probably should have expanded a bit more, yes you should respond as quickly as you can, explaining you “may” have a bit more to add and why you “may” be late with it (These are then passed to senior clerks before the hearing). Ultimately, “interest of justice” and fairness of hearings are still paramount, regardless of the new process (Obviously within reason) so it really is a case by case thing.

Well, that was my understanding after my conversation.
