Special urgency and undertaking necessary collateral work: timing issues

Where you undertake work under regulation 18(1)(a) and (2) of the Civil Legal Aid (Scotland) Regulations 2002, you may undertake any necessary work which has to be done at the same time, even though it is not within the terms of regulation 18(2). For example, if an action is being raised containing a crave for a power of arrest you can include, and move for, interim interdict at the same time. However, if the issue of power of arrest is disposed of and the collateral matter is continued, you will need to apply for approval under regulation 18(1)(b) before carrying out any further work on the collateral matter.
