A CALL to arms has gone out to personal injury lawyers to help defeat the expected bill reintroducing the Government's controversial tariff compensation scheme.
A letter sent out to all 1,900 members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (Apil) urges them to lobby their MPs on the injustices of the tariff system.
Although Home Secretary Michael Howard's controversial scheme was declared unlawful by the House of Lords in April, it is likely a bill setting it on a firm legal footing will be published in the next few weeks.
The Apil bulletin to its members says: "It is imperative that Apil members help to ensure that the tariff scheme is finally scrapped, through stopping the proposed legislation."
As well as calling on lawyers to mount local campaigns against the tariff scheme, Apil is also looking for clients who are prepared to talk to the media about their cases.
Andrew Dismore, chair of the Apil damages special interest group, represented the trade unions who challenged the Government in the Lords.
The former litigation partner at Robin Thompson & Partners who has just joined rival firm Russell Jones & Walker says only a few rebel Tory MPs are needed to ensure key amendments are passed introducing flexibility into the scheme, currently in abeyance.
