This 22nd edition comes three years after the last edition, and the text has been brought fully up to date. There have not been any major structural changes for this edition, though there have been some changes to the editorial team. Our thanks go to Adam Speker for his invaluable assistance with chapter 22 (Defamation) in the 21st edition, and especially to Gillian Davies who has also retired from the team. Gillian has been with us since the 20th edition. We are pleased to welcome back Korieh Duodu, who joins Felicity McMahon in dealing chapter 22. Gwilym Harbottle, of Hogarth Chambers, has taken over responsibility for chapter 25 (Statutory Intellectual Property Rights) together with Ben Longstaff, also of Hogarth Chambers, who had been providing assistance to Gillian with the chapter. There have been few legislative changes since the 21st edition. It may be that Parliament has had its eye on matters European rather than domestic, though at this time working out the implications of Brexit for tort claims is an undertaking for the future. The Trade Union Act 2016 has further restricted the position of trade unions contemplating industrial action, and the Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Act 2015 illustrates, yet again (see s.1 of the Compensation Act 2006), the consequences of Parliament reacting to the moral panic of a so-called “compensation culture” fomented by the popular press. It might be thought that there are more pressing matters to be addressed than legislation to deal with non- existent legal problems. Perhaps the most significant piece of legislation, at least for personal injury practitioners, is also the shortest, namely the Damages (Personal Injury) Order 2017/206 reducing the discount rate for calculating future loss to minus 0.75 per cent. At a stroke, awards of damages for more seriously injured claimants have been radically increased.
