We can confirm that following the response to our letter before action to The Lord Chancellor in relation to tendering for dual contracts, our legal team have issued a claim for Judicial Review. The basis of the Claim is:
1. The number of contracts being determined at 527 after the consultation process of 3 weeks.
2. The procedure for the tendering process including the unrealistic timetable set out. An application for interim relief has been lodged as part of the claim, we will know more next week.
In the meantime please hold fire on signing the contract extensions until 16th January (deadline 23rd January). Do try and attend our meeting on that day. Click here to book. Christmas is upon us and there are many demands upon finances. Many of us will want to donate to far worthier causes. Please remember that the cost of dual contracts to many of the firms affected is catastrophic compared to the value of a contribution to the JR fund. Any size donation is welcome.
