  2. Having thought about it for a while, as no track is yet allocated 31.4 and 31.15 seems to me to be in play.

Whilst I thank you for your comment, I am fairly certain that all parties are expected to comply with the Civil Procedure Rules. - Perhaps I have misunderstood your comment.
  7. Hello, This is my first post so be gentle with me! If my understanding is correct, CPR 31.14 provides the right to inspect the class(es) of documents specified in 31.14. In the event the party wishes to exercise that right, he is required to serve a notice under CPR 31.15 and the party in possession of the document is required to permit that inspection within 7 days of that notice being served on him. Following inspection, if the inspecting party wishes to have a copy of the document he has inspected and providing he gives an undertaking to pay the reasonable costs of
