Sending documents by carrier pigeon is okay

People can get very worried about how to send documents to other people during the tribunal process. They fear somehow doing it wrong.

This is almost always totally unnecessary. All the normal sorts of methods are fine — post, fax, email, hand-delivery. As is any abnormal method as long as it works. If you can persuade a carrier pigeon to drop off your application for disclosure at Watford ET, go right ahead.

Use common sense. Don’t fax someone a 1,000 page bundle — it will jam up their fax machine and annoy them. If something is urgent, don’t use a 2nd-class stamp. If your opponent persistently claims not to receive your communications, consider using registered mail.

But otherwise, use any sensible method you like.

    Bearing in mind the administrative chaos that seems to reign at some venues I suggest that if you are unable to deliver papers by hand, “common sense” means using recorded delivery (if you have plenty of time) or special delivery (if time is of the essence). As for carrier pigeons, whereas the one in “Dastardly & Muttley” always seemed to get through, the technology for “stopping the pigeon” has sadly improved somewhat since the 60s…
