EAT PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE – Permission to appeal further
Permission to appeal was granted. The Secretary of State’s apology for declining to attend hitherto was accepted. There was a compelling reason for permission, including a parallel reference to the CJEU, the importance of the legal issue to industry, and the value of the claims. In the unique circumstances, a condition of permission being granted was the Secretary of State indemnify the Claimants for their reasonable costs in the Court of Appeal.
