A. BPD/BCD : Skeleton Arguments Bundle
A skeleton argument is a document produced for the court. It is more usually produced as a means of presenting the skeleton or ‘bare bones’ of a case before a trial.
The skeleton arguments cross-reference documents in the bundles. There is a consolidated index here: [Consolidated Index]
References in the form [Bundle/Tab/Page] are to the following bundles:
- Bundles used for the July 2016 hearing, namely ‘Core’ and bundles numbered consecutively 1 to 5

The Authorities Bundles consist of five authorities bundles for the July 2016 hearing (“A1” to “A4” and a supplemental authorities bundle “A5”) and a supplemental authorities bundle prepared for the hearing on 8 March 2017 (“AS1”). For the Authorities Bundles, only indexes are provided, from which the relevant Authorities can be identified. These documents should be publicly available.
