*Broadhurst v Tan ; Taylor v Smith

Costs – Order for costs. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, ruled on a point of construction which arose from the apparent tension between the rules fixing costs in most lower value personal injury cases, found in s IIIA of CPR Pt 45, and the provisions in CPR Pt 36 which specifically applied to such claims. It held that the tension between CPR 45.29B and CPR 36.14A had to be resolved in favour of CPR 36.14A.
