    • to note: the claimant has given a 'reference' number. It is 11 digits long. Regarding 2 - do I even say I have had dealings with Barclays Bank UK PLC ?   Also the 'particulars of claim' are not in paragraphs on the claim form. It is just one chunk of text. With sentences. Do I refer to these as paragraphs ? As I have in the above defence.
    • 1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The claimant even fails to refer to an agreement number. Therefore the defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   2. Paragraph 2 is noted. Whilst I have had dealings with Barclays Bank UK PLC given that claimant fails to refer to an account number I am unaware what agreement the claimant wishes to rely upon.   3.Paragraph 3 is noted although without knowledge of which account the claimant refers to I can neither admit or deny the receipt of a Default Notice pursuant to sec 87(1) CCA1974 being received.   4. Paragraph 4 is noted but again as above I am not aware of what agreement the assignment refers to.   5. On receipt of this claim I requested information pertaining to this claim from PRA group (UK) Limited by way of a CPR 31:14 request sent via 1st class recorded post on 06/06/2024 and further to the above I sent PRA group UK Portfolios Ltd a section 78 request via 1st class recorded post on 06/06/2024.   To date, PRA Group Uk Portfolios Ltd or PRA group (UK) Limited are yet to furnish me with the requested information  and therefore prevented from enforcing the alleged agreement.   6.Therefore with the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to evidence and :   a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed for; c) show and evidence the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice pursuant to Sec 87 (1) CCA1974. d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • 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.

Hoping someone can offer some guidance.


Am in the processing of a claim for constructive unfair dismissal, and having finally received the respondents response, it is evident that they may falsify documents, i.e. produce letters that have never been sent! If I am right, and they do this, is there any way of proving they've been falsely produced, and were never sent?

Thanks Emmzzi. Do you think that would be sufficient? Is it not reasonable for them to say they relied on delivery? They're referring to letters sent, which certainly have never been received, and I suspect they don't even exist. If they say they were sent, it's my word against theirs as to their existence. I'm sure it wouldn't be the first time someone has claimed not to receive a letter, when in fact they have.

Thanks Becky, I'm not sure I understand, precisely. I had thought that any document created on a pc will have 'properties' showing creation, modified, printing dates, but have no idea how that information could be made available to the ET. :???:

I've just noticed that the ET3 has several sections left blank, info such as the employer size in GB, and my rates of pay. It seems pernickety to point that out, as the ET have accepted the response (filed minutes before the 28 day deadline), but could it be relevant?

size of company is relevant in things like assessing what is a "reasonable" adjustment. Pay can be determined by yourself, may or may not be relevant.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Update: I've just received the 'list of documents' as defined by the case management order, and as I feared, the respondent does indeed list a letter that I do not believe was in existence until now. I know I can request a copy of the letter, but other than that, I've no idea on how to handle this. Can someone advise please?

As you have to agree the bundle, you should write to them asking for disclosure of this document. Inform them you wish to dispute the document once you have seen it and are still not satisfied (i.e., notify the respondents to put it in a "disputed documents folder", to argue about it with the respondents before the judge before the hearing).

Thank you Pusillanimous, I'm absolutely certain I can guess the contents of the letter, and it will be the only thing that they are relying on in their defence. However, I suspect it will have been created specifically for this purpose, ie in the last couple of weeks, and not months ago. As I understand it, from previous advice, I need to apply for specific disclosure regarding the metadata of the document, which hopefully will prove my suspicions, however I don't know how I do that.

Ask for it in a letter "within 14 days". If not forthcoming, make a formal application to the tribunal, remembering to state you have copied in the other side (and do so, as per regulations) for the metadata, which will show all the modifications to the document, with dates. Spell out your suspicion.


You will soon find out from their response if there is any basis for it.

Again, thank you. So, just to confirm I've understood correctly, I can write to the respondent (represented by a solicitor), requesting them to disclose the metadata of the relevant document, and if the fail to disclose it, I can request the tribunal to order the disclosure? If I have to make the request to the tribunal, do I need to make reference to any section of the Employment Tribunals Act ?

Good morning. Can I please quickly clarify, as I'm about to finalise my letter ready to send electronically first thing in the morning: is asking for the metadata 'disclosure' or 'specific disclosure'?


Sorry, having read through the thread again, it 's making more sense to me now.

Update, and further help required please. I requested the disputed documents in their native electronic form, but what they provided is a PDF file where paper copies of the documents had been scanned in! I have reiterated the request for them in their native format, but so far, this has not been forthcoming. Their solicitor has said 'they are awaiting instructions from their client (I hope they're not holding their breath).


I need to ensure I get these documents, which could, if my suspicions are correct, be the crux of my case. But I'm really not sure how to go about it. I have no idea of the correct way of requesting an order from the tribunal, so can someone help please? I'm worried that I'll make a technical mistake in my request thus giving the other side a genuine reason to object. The last thing I want is to lose this purely on a technicality.

Thank you all for your continued help and support.

Write to the solicitor, or direct to the tribunal complaining they have not disclosed what you requested and ask for a disclosure order. Spell out what you want. Label it clearly, "Application" with case reference.


The tribunal will ask the other side for their comments.


Don't be surprised if they say they only have it in pdf. If fabricated, as you say, they are hardly going to disclose its true origins.


You will just have to make a fuss about it.
