Singh v Post Office: NIRC 1973

Sir John Brightman said that a court, asked about whether an out if time claim could have been presented in time, should read the word ‘practicable’ as the equivalent of ‘feasible’ and ask colloquially and untrammelled by too much legal logic – ‘was it reasonably feasible to present the complaint to the tribunal within the relevant three months?’
