"The explanation given in the Acknowledgment of Service that the Liability Order related to the period from 19/7/01 to 28/12/04 and not to any later period, and was thus correctly made, appears to be a complete answer to the claim. If the claimant maintains that notwithstanding this there is a proper basis for continuing his application for permission, he must identify in writing what that is, so that the matter way be further considered. He must do so within two months (ie by no later than 10 July 2007), until then all further proceedings herein are stayed. If he does not do so, then on that date the proceedings shall be treated as if permission to apply for judicial review is refused as at that date."
"I have spent -- I could say wasted -- a good deal of time trying to get to the bottom of this singularly arid dispute, and I attach a note concerning my analysis of what appears to have gone wrong."
"It is not clear to me on the papers that the defendants have met the fundamental point that there has been a miscalculation, not fully rectified, as to the period of the liability order. This permission is granted for judicial review, with any necessary extension of time."
Again, it is apparent that Irwin J's attention was on the liability order.
