Gill v Fiat Group Automobiles UK Ltd

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The claimant sought to appeal a refusal to allow an amendment of certain particulars of claim. The grounds of the appeal were that the master had failed to give adequate reasons for his decision such that neither the parties nor the court was in a position to ascertain why the master had reached the decision which he had done. It was contended that the court itself should consider afresh the issues which were before the master. The Queen's Bench Division held that in the circumstances, the decision of the master had neither been wrong nor unreasonable and an appeal had stood no reasonable prospect of success.
