Hi All,

I have a directions order which has the standard line:

a) No document other than a document specified in this order or sent/ delivered in accordance with the Rules or any Practice Direction shall be sent/delivered by any party without the court’s permission.

Unpicking the meaning - it's saying unless the order specifies a document due to be produced (which it doesn't), then I'm not supposed to file any documents except those in accordance with practice directions? So I can do a bundle with statement etc?

Thanks :)

Just to answer this myself, if you read carefully it says no document is allowed *except* if the Order specifically requests something or *except* if you follow the practice directions, in which case you can file anything you like! So get yourself down to PD27A here www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rule...rections/pd_part_27a and follow those rules (loosely).

Also, to my untrained eye even the FPR rules don't make sense as they say the following numerical limits are both for \"sheets of paper and sides of text\"! So which is it, as one means double the other!?
