This book, now in its fourth edition, provides a clear and comprehensive review of the present state of the 1996 Act. It explains the deliberations that led to the passing of the Act and then examines the Act's provisions in detail, emphasising how its sections have been interpreted and highlighting particular problem areas.

The commentary includes references to the Civil Procedure Rules as they affect applications to the court, and is cross-referred to the Departmental Advisory Committee Reports upon which the Act is based. The full text of the Act, Part 62 of the Civil Procedure Rules and the Departmental Advisory Committee reports are also discussed.

The most important cases covered since the last edition, include:
