Extemporary judgment on a claim by P against H seeking to recover over pounds 1.5 million said to be due to it from the defendant under an unregulated hire purchase agreement made between the parties. An acknowledgment of service was duly filed indicating an intention by the defendant to defend all of the claim. However, no defence was filed or served and the claimant entered judgment in default against the defendant for pounds 1,580,345.41, inclusive of interest. The defendant now sought to have judgment in default set aside.
