The Bar Council has criticised government proposals for protecting people from unfair county court judgments (CCJs) as ‘too conservative’ and called for speedier dismissal of claims that have been sent to incorrect addresses.

In response to a consultation paper on reforming CCJs, the council said that current proposals will result in the ‘unsatisfactory situation’ of an incorrectly addressed claim remaining on the register for many years.
