“In the light of the current pandemic the Designated Civil Judge in Manchester, HHJ Bird, has asked the listing staff to apply PD23A para.6.1 (and onwards) strictly where both/all sides are represented, all parties consent and where the conference will be arranged by the parties hearings. Furthermore, this will include cases where the hearing may last more than the one hour suggested under 6.2. The intention is to promote the listing of cases by phone by court staff without requiring judicial input and to expand the approach to hearings lasting more than merely one hour.
