    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

My Son is 26 and has downs syndrom he currently goes to a adult special education centre in the west midlands twice a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays he gets picked up from home on the morning by coach or minibus and dropped off at the end of the day.

As of last week the council are going to charge me £40 a month for him to be picked up and dropped off.

I wont to know can they do this he is registered disabled and the centre is over 4 miles from where I live.

Please Excuse my ignorance with regard to DS and the specific restrictions it puts on the sufferers life:???:


What I do know is that as I am registered disabled and have severe traumatic brain injury, I am no longer able to drive but they have issued me with a blue badge!:roll:


However, that blue badge along with my disability allows me to have a free bus pass:) If that is going to be too much for him to cope with, you can always ask them to issue you with bus tokens instead, which can also be used in taxis.


Hope this might be of some use for you both:D

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

In my opinion I beleive they can charge but only a percentage of the actual cost (If im wrong someone with more knowledge will let you know)


Where I live (Wales) they charge for transport. My son goes to a day centre and I have to pay for him to be picked up every day.


Have you tired social services or a charity to see if they can help with the costs?
