The Prime Minister on Lord Young on Sir Rupert Jackson!

No one can now doubt that Jackson is going to be implemented.
The Prime Minister in his introduction to the report published today admits that he asked Lord Young to consider costs and compensation when in opposition.He proceeds to embrace the Young proposals.In turn,"I fully endorse the recommendations that he has made" says Young of the Jackson report.Unanimity.
Earlier this week i was asked by Sir Rupert and the Master of the Rolls to oversee the Mercantile costs management pilot and today Sir Rupert gave me the job of doing the same in the Construction Court.It is (unsurprisingly ) clear they mean business.
The legend that is Ken Slade of Weightmans has produced a perfect summary of Young.Please e mail me if you would like a copy;
