LSC to face judicial review over report costs

first_imgThe Law Society is to challenge by judicial review a Legal Services Commission decision to meet just one-third of the costs of an expert witness report ordered by a county court on behalf of a child. The LSC declined to pay the full costs of the report, arguing that the child, and his or her parents, had jointly instructed the expert witness and so should share the costs equally between them. The county court, in contrast, attached the full costs to the child’s legal aid certificate because neither parent could afford to contribute. The decision could have important implications from April next year, when most legal aid is to be withdrawn from private law proceedings, leaving more children as the only publicly funded parties to cases and more parents representing themselves. The case began in 2009 when a district judge ordered a report from a child and adult psychotherapist ‘in respect of the child in particular and the family dynamics in general’. The judge, who knew the parents’ financial circumstances, ordered that the report’s costs were to be funded by the child’s legal aid, it being a ‘reasonable and necessary disbursement to be incurred’. The LSC responded that the order had been made without considering the provisions of section 22(4) of the Access to Justice Act, which prohibits courts from making orders that impose liability for a joint expert’s fees only on those with legal aid if the other parties cannot afford to contribute towards the costs. The Law Society’s head of family and social justice Mark Paulson said: ‘We decided to intervene on the basis that the case raised public interest issues of general application and importance. We accept the force of the LSC’s argument, but relying upon it could mean denying the court access to evidence that it requires to reach a decision in the child’s best interest.’ The solicitor acting for the child, Andrew Pearson, of Kent firm Pearsons, has also sought permission for a judicial review of the LSC decision on the grounds that it is irrational.last_img read more

CN plans for the next millennium

first_imgBYLINE: Paul M TellierPresident & Chief Executive OfficerCanadian National RailwayCANADIAN NATIONAL has taken decisive steps to meet the challenges and opportunities of the next millennium. By the end of this year CN and its customers will be positioned to reap the benefits of the increasing integration of the North American economy, as manifested by double-digit increases in north-south trade. We will have boosted our productivity again to meet the competitive challenge of the ’Big Four’ US railroads, and we will have moved aggressively to meet shippers’ ever-rising expectations for more consistent, more accountable rail service.I am determined that Canadian National will enter the new millennium as a stronger, more vibrant, North American railroad, with more than 50% of its business generated by north-south continental traffic. Indeed, my goal is to make CN the best railroad in North America.Sold by the Canadian government in 1995, in the largest and most successful initial public share offering in Canadian history, CN has continually striven to improve its transport product since launching its turnaround strategy in 1992. Cost reduction, productivity improvement and profitable, sustainable revenue growth have preoccupied management.And so has the charting of a sound strategic direction. Nothing manifests this more than the decision to acquire Illinois Central, announced on February 10 1998. This was driven by the fact that the arena in which CN and its customers compete today is increasingly being shaped by the North American Free Trade Agreement. NAFTA’s effects are indisputable: Canada – US trade is growing at 11% annually. The CN/IC merger will offer new, efficient single-line services to many existing and prospective customers. Uniting CN – North America’s most improved railroad – with IC – the most efficient Class 1 rail carrier – will connect the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts with a single Y-shaped network.We are optimistic that the US Surface Transportation Board will approve the merger in a vote scheduled to take place this month. Customers will benefit from new sources of supplies and parts, and new markets for finished products, raw materials and bulk commodities. CN/IC will benefit from extended hauls for existing traffic and the diversion of business from other modes and other railroads. The merger will also enhance the shipper benefits of another strategic initiative – a 15-year marketing alliance which CN and IC signed with Kansas City Southern Railway in April 1998. This alliance already offers co-ordinated through-train service between Canada, the US midwest and south, and Mexico. Should the STB approve the CN/IC merger, CN/IC and KCSR will exchange trackage and haulage rights in the southern USA and pursue other new terminal investments.The merger and marketing alliance are driving CN down the centre of the continent, with two of the ’Big Four’ US railroads on one side and two on the other. But CSX, Norfolk Southern, Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific still dwarf CN in size and revenue. There is little doubt that these giant railroads will become more powerful competitors than they are today – highly productive, efficient railroads with extended market reach and formidable abilities to raise capital for new investments. CN, as a North American railroad, has no choice but to be as productive as its US competitors. But our US expansion plans and productivity measures are not objectives in themselves. They must produce a service which the market wants. The glue that will meld CN’s strategic objectives into a consistently successful product is the way we run our trains. That is why we have devised plans to operate more efficiently, using fewer locomotives, cars and terminals to do more work. But this, in turn, will require fewer employees. Our objective is to offer customers a precise, competitive, consistent transport service based on a comprehensive schedule and measures to minimise the time that cars sit idle in marshalling yards.The benefits are manifold, providing:last_img read more

Thello brings open access to France

first_imgEUROPE: From October 17 customers will be able to book berths on the first open-access passenger service to operate on the French network, an overnight train from Paris to Venezia that is to be introduced on December 11 by the Thello joint venture of Veolia Transdev and Trenitalia.Announcing the Thello brand name on October 6, the partners said the southbound service would depart from Paris Lyon at 20.43 each day, and arrive at Venezia Santa Lucia at 09.34 the following morning, having called at Dijon, Milano, Brescia, Verona, Vicenza and Padova. The northbound train will leave Venezia at 19.57 and is scheduled to arrive in Paris at 08.14.Three classes of accommodation will be offered, the most economical being for travel in couchette compartments containing six berths. There will also be four-berth couchettes, as well as sleeping compartments for between one and three passengers, equipped with a private shower and toilet. Thello says some couchette compartments will be reserved for female passengers travelling on their own.Looking to bring new standards of passenger comfort to the route, Thello will be providing a 36-seat restaurant car on each train, operated by LSG Sky Chefs and serving menus devised by leading chefs. There will also be a bar/buffet counter as well as a trolley service for couchette passengers.Test running is already underway in France with a three-system Class 36000 electric loco which has been uprated from 160 km/h to 200 km/h operation. Thello is to lease a batch of these locos from SNCF subsidiary Akiem to haul its overnight trains; they were built to haul cross-border freight services between France and Italy.last_img read more

Thirteen sworn in to lead the Roseau City Council

first_img Share The new council of the City of Roseau plans to continue working at enhancing the appearance of the City and resolving the issue of vagrancy in its new term.The thirteen member council was sworn in at the twelfth inaugural meeting of the Roseau City Council at the Arawak House of Culture on Wednesday 23 November 2016. Nominations for the council were held on 25 October and the election was scheduled for 14 November; however low voter turnout hampered the elections.Mayor Irene John, who is serving her second consecutive term in that capacity, said the Council has had to face many challenges to carry out their functions as a local government body especially as the city council, with so many important, necessary and even urgent things to do and so limited resources with which to do them.She thanked past councilors and those who will no longer be serving for their hard work and dedication to the health, comfort and overall success of the district, and welcomed the new councilors; Ermine Royer, Ken Joseph, Rohan Kemai John, Sherman Boston and Wayne D. Benjamin who were elected and nominated to serve.“I want to remind them that councils like ours and especially the counts on the principal’s town have a very important part to play in national development we should never underplay the importance of our functions to provide those parts of public goods and services which government and parliament have assigned to us,” John said.The other councilors are Lucy Belle Matthew, Michael Moreau, Ivan Sonnes, Rhea Brumant, Kimara Hurtault, Daniel Lugay, and Erickson Romain.Mayor John noted that being close to the communities, the councilors are better able to identify and address matters which affect residents. Thus, during the past years the Council has pursued a major program of urban renewal and improvements in the environment as well as amenities that the City needs.“These include making Roseau a comfortable place for our citizens and visitors alike, by rebuilding our sidewalks and drains to make them safe for walking. Our council is grateful that government has already taken care of design work and is actively putting together the financial support for this project, enhancing the appearance of our City by encouraging the restoration of dilapidated property and clearing areas that are hazardous to health, and lower the attractiveness of our city, supporting initiatives to take care of our increasingly difficult parking problem, but while we do all these things we take care of our physical environment that affect our daily lives and the well-being of our communities”.The council will work to resolve the vagrancy issue, which Mayor John acknowledged is a threat to the success of the tourism industry.“This is a social problem that requires humane, but effective solutions, solutions that include not only regulation and policing, and even more so action to improve the care, welfare and protection of many of those that are left behind on our streets. Our policy will do as much as it can to address these problems during our new term,” Mayor John assured.Meanwhile, residents of the City have been called upon to pay their house and property rates as it is the Council’s “principle source of financing”.“In the past year we found it very difficult to increase the yield from our revenue base because of discrepancies in our properties’ register. Transfers, either through sale or bequest, were either not reported or recorded and we’ve had to do extensive reassessment to re-establish ownership of those properties. We appeal to those property owners who have not done so, to come forward and make good their delinquent accounts,” she said.– / 38 1326 Views   one comment LocalNews Thirteen sworn in to lead the Roseau City Council by: Dominica Vibes News – November 24, 2016 Tweetcenter_img Share Sharing is caring!
