Williams v Ferrosan Ltd: EAT 5 Mar 2004

Acting on guidance, the parties representatives and the tribunal had assumed that part of the award relating to loss of future earnings would not be taxable. The question now was whether the tribunal had power of its own motion to review its decision.
Held: ‘There is a difference between saying that a case to which rule 13(1)(e) applies will in practice be unusual or exceptional and saying that rule 13(1)(e) should be read as if inserted into it are the words ‘exceptional circumstances’. We see no reason now in the light of rule 10 that some sort of: ‘exceptionality hurdle’ should be read into rule 13(1)(e). One of the many advantages of the Civil Procedure Rules has been that a rule which, prior to the introduction of the CPR, had become ‘encrusted’ by numerous cases can be looked at afresh.’
