Arbitration Practice and Procedure
12.1.1 The arbitrator’s power to give directions.
Following the preliminary meeting the claimant submitted his statement of case. The arbitrator read this statement and decided that it was defective in certain areas. He was unclear as to the precise nature of some of the issues in dispute. He acknowledged receipt of the statement; admitted that a cursory read through it had thrown up some queries and went on to say that he would await receipt and consideration of the statement of defence before raising these queries.
