These Directions apply to all cases listed on or after 6th April up to and including Friday 1ST May 2020
In each case to which these directions apply, there is permission to apply to the court to vary or set aside the directions, as it may apply in that particular case. Any such application shall be made to: firstname.lastname@example.org marked for the urgent attention of His Honour Judge O’Dwyer, District Judge Gibbons or District Judge Hudd.
