SPI North Ltd v Swiss Post International (UK) Ltd and another company

Practice – Civil Procedure Rules. CPR 16.5(1)(b) did not import any duty to make reasonable enquiries of third parties before putting the claimant to proof of an allegation that the defendant was 'unable to admit or deny'. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the claimant company's appeal against a decision dismissing its application to strike out the defendant companies' defence.
