The Committee's report examines the small claims system in the county court, focusing on the following issues: provision of IT facilities and listing procedures, enforcement of judgements, limits on claims for personal injury and housing disrepair, and proposals for a European Small Claims Procedure to cover cross-border cases. The Committee finds that the small claims system generally works well in providing a low cost, good quality procedure for large numbers of litigants which is more informal and quicker than ordinary proceedings. However, the report also identifies a number of areas for improvement, including the need to introduce electronic document management and listing software to increase work efficiency; to improve enforceability of judgements; and to review financial limits for claims relating to personal injury and housing disrepair.He wanted to take it to their workshop for repair but her son pointed out it was only a broken pin and repaired it himself. ... advice when she received a letter from a company saying she must pay Ap6.092 for a mobility scooter when the price she had agreed with the salesman was Ap3.500. 4.6. ...
