Does the PI Protocol apply in this case? If it does, explain why. If it does not, also explain why and suggest which other protocol that might apply.

Question 2

Consider the template letter of claim in Annex B1 to the PI Protocol and the provisions of paragraph 5. What amendments, either by way of additions or deletions, would you make to this letter to ensure it was a PI Protocol compliant letter in Andrew Pike’s claim?

Question 3

If, by way of example only, Andrew Pike’s claim was valued at less than £25,000, and there had been an admission of negligence but no agreement as to quantum, which Protocol or other claims procedure may apply? Please give your reasons.
