Thank you. Lying in court is nothing new – it happens all the time. Some people get away with, others do not. Perjury is not easy to follow through with – to be guilty you have to show that the person accused of it had made a wilful false statement under oath, knowing it was untrue, and that this information was material to the proceedings, meaning it would have affected the overall outcome of the case. It is a criminal matter and as such it is for the criminal courts to enforce – not for the tribunal to deal with. However, if you lost the case and are going to appeal, you could potentially try and rely on this to undermine any other evidence by the respondent and it could potentially result in a re-hearing.

it has to be deliberate to be perjury and to be treated seriously. If it was an honest error or confusion then it is unlikely to be treated that seriously. Also there will be difficulty in proving it was done deliberately. So whilst you could potentially win if it was proven to be deliberate. the difficulty lies with proving that in the first place
you can ask but the tribunal decides whether to action that or not.
