I don't understand the question, sorry
can you let me know what you mean please
Ok - you do not need to worry
It is not issued by the Court. Therefore you do not have to attend.
If you do not attend they can not make you.
If it was a Court summons then you would have to attend.
But it is not
Therefore you do not need attend - you are not compelled to by law
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
The summons was issued by a court and has a stamp of The Royal Courts of Justice
Ok thank you. In that case you should attend
If you do not then you could be arrested
But the law only requires you to attned.
You can attend and refuse to give evidence
Does that help?
Can I state that if I am made to attend I will refuse to give evidence in the hope they will quash the summons?
You can try that yes
Will I get in trouble as this may be deemed as a threat?
No of course not
But all the summons requires you is to attend, nothing else
The summons states I am summoned to attend to give evidence in the respect of the above claim!
You are generally only required to attend. You can sit on the stand and refuse to answer questions if they try and make you.
