A county court could take judicial notice of previous breaches of undertakings to it by a local authority, the court of appeal ruled on 18 October (Times Law Report p23).

Hackney LBC lost its appeal against a £5,000 fine imposed for breaching an undertaking given to a court in relation to repair works to a property .

County court judge Graham has said the case was one of numerous examples of Hackney failures. He said the time had now arrived when the council had to be reminded of the seriousness of promises made to the court, and imposed the fine, The Times reports.
