Proposed amendments to the Tribunal Procedure (First-tier Tribunal) (Social Entitlement Chamber) Rules 2008 - CPAG's response

May 2012

The Tribunal Procedure Committee is proposing to amend the first-tier tribunal rules to complement the proposed introduction of mandatory revisions before appeal. The new rules will require appeals to be submitted to the Tribunal Service rather than the benefit authorities, and will introduce a statutory time limit for the benefit authorities to respond to appeals.

Details of the consultation can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.
