Devonport Royal Dockyards Ltd v Carillion Construction Ltd
Citation: All ER (D) 366 TCC
Nature of case:
Proceedings by the contractors to enforce an adjudication award in their favour, reported in BLR 2003, were joined with the client’s application for a declaration that the decision was unenforceable. The adjudicator’s refusal to consider evidence he regarded as irrelevant was neither a breach of natural justice nor an excess of jurisdiction. Only in exceptional circumstances would a decision be regarded as unenforceable due to inadequacy of reasons. The Scheme provides (Clause 20(c)) for the award of interest but does not override contractual provision for interest.
