*Khaira and others v Shergill and others

Costs – Assessment. A party who was awarded the costs of an interlocutory appeal was not entitled to an immediate assessment of those costs without the need for an express order to that effect. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, having regard to the general rule stated in CPR 47.1, determined that the correct interpretation of an order made by the Supreme Court in relation to costs in both the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal, Civil Division was not an express order for an immediate assessment of costs in the Court of Appeal, Civil Division.
