Serious Organised Crime Agency v Namli and Another: CA 29 Nov 2011

An application was made to vary a disclosure order. The application raised a question as to the scope of CPR Part 33.6 and the relationship between that provision, Part 31.5(2) and Part 31.19, and the exercise of the powers conferred on the Court by Part 31.5(2) and Part 31.19.
Held: CPR 31.5(2) empowers the court to limit standard disclosure and that power may be exercised at or after the time that disclosure is ordered, having regard to the overriding objective, including the saving of expense and the need to not involve unnecessary court resources.
