If I had to pick one legislative provision which has resulted in more gross unfairness than any other, over the period of my career, its a ‘no-brainer:’ section 47A of the Limitation Act 1935.

Section 47A in the context I have seen it most regularly, set a time limit for claims to be made against public

 Further to my earlier post, time is now extremely short for birth injury claims, for children born before Nov 2005.

As I have previously posted, the Limitation Act 2005, retrospectively (and without any publicity) shortened the time for claims relating to alleged negligent obstetric (or midwifrey) care, prior to its introduction in November 2005.
