Third Party Procedure in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • R v Ahmed
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 28 Oct 2004

    It seems to us that that exercise is prescribed by the provisions of the Act as we have already indicated. The court is merely concerned with the arithmetic exercise of computing what is, in effect, a statutory debt. That process does not involve any assessment, in our judgment, of the way in which that debt may ultimately be paid, any more than the assessment of any other debt. No questions therefore arise under Article 8 at this stage in the process.

    Different considerations, will, however arise if the debt is not met and the prosecution determine to take enforcement action, for example by obtaining an order for a receiver. As the House of Lords explained in Re Norris [2001] 1WLR 1388, this is the stage of the procedure in which third party's rights can not only be taken into account but resolved.

  • R v Reading Justices, ex parte Berkshire County Council
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 03 May 1995

    (iv) it is not sufficient that the Applicant merely wants to find out whether or not the third party has such material documents. This procedure must not be used as a disguised attempt to obtain discovery.

  • Linden Gardens Trust Ltd v Lenesta Sludge Disposals Ltd and Others ; St Martins Property Corporation Ltd and Another v Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd (formerly Sir Robert McAlpine and Sons Ltd)
    • House of Lords
    • 22 Jul 1993

    If this is the right view of the case, it is unexceptionable: a prohibition on assignment normally only invalidates the assignment as against the other party to the contract so as to prevent a transfer of the chose in action: in the absence of the clearest words it cannot operate to invalidate the contract as between the assignor and the assignee and even then it may be ineffective on the grounds of public policy.

  • Brink's Mat Ltd v Elcombe
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 12 Jun 1987

    In one or two other recent cases coming before this court, I have suspected signs of a growing tendency on the part of some litigants against whom ex parte injunctions have been granted, or of their legal advisers, to rush to the R. v. Kensington Income Tax Commissioners principle as a tabula in naufragio, alleging material non-disclosure on sometimes rather slender grounds, as representing substantially the only hope of obtaining the discharge of injunctions in cases where there is little hope of doing so on the substantial merits of the case or on the balance of convenience.

  • Cape Intermediate Holdings Ltd v Mr Graham Dring (for and on behalf of The Asbestos Victims Support Group)
    • Supreme Court
    • 29 Jul 2019

    The Asbestos Victims Support Groups Forum UK (“the Forum”) is an unincorporated association providing help and support to people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases and their families. It is also involved in lobbying and promoting asbestos knowledge and safety. No particular case was identified but it was said that they would assist in current cases.

  • Lister v Romford Ice and Cold Storage Company Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 20 Dic 1956

    What mattered was that the duty was there. It is a familiar position in our law that the same wrongful act may be made the subject of an action either in contract or in tort at the election of the claimant, and, although the course chosen may produce certain incidental consequences which would not have followed had the other course been adopted, it is a mistake to regard the two kinds of liability as themselves necessarily exclusive of each other.
