Have you had cases adjourned due to a lack of Judges or sat for hours on a 'floating case' ? I have had the dubious honour of suffering both recently at Birmingham tribunal! The idea of stockpiling smaller cases and distributing them amongst a few judges is a good way of saving tax payer's cheese but surely the allocation should be worked out in a better way - get the cases likely to last 5 minutes on first! I know some reps will fib to get on first but surely the best way of dealing with cases expeditiously is to ask the reps how long their case is likely to last and get them dealt with first ! !
