Locke v Liddle
 EWHC 2620 (QB)
Successful appeal. The normal rule was to order that costs be assessed forthwith. Under the CPR particular regard was to be had to proportionality. There was an element of proportionality in having all the costs dealt with on one occasion: it would be quicker to assess the costs at one hearing. However, that was not a sufficient reason to displace the normal rule. C was entitled to have his costs assessed in detail at the present stage. It was not pragmatic to award him costs and interest at a later date.
