Hello and thanks for requesting me
You should reply to the defence saying whether you admit, deny and if so your version of events, or put the Defendant to proof
So you reply to each allegation
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
i do that by referring to the specific pt in his defence? Do I need to repeat it in my reply?
No, you just say for example paragraph 1 is admitted, denied etc
Does that help?
